Tom, there was one major omission from the albums list this week; GusGus just released “Mexico” on Kompakt and it is fantastic.

I’m starting to think that The Heist won because it was the only rap album the Grammy panel listened to all the way through.

That sound you hear is Ian Curtis rolling over in his grave.

I totally agree. Romance Is Boring is the best LC! record yet. I think it got snubbed mostly cause it came out on the same day as Teen Dream, and it got lost amidst the onslaught of great albums this year. It still finished as my #2 album this year, if you’d like to read my list.

Also, I’m curious as to why so many people are all of the sudden saying they’ve been listening to Ariel Pink for years. No one once mentioned him prior to Before Today, yet it seems like after June 8, everyone has been into him since the beginning. Did I miss something? (For the record, I gave Before Today several listens and I still don’t get it)
