It’s been a top year for British music. Any of that first 6 + Savages would have been perfect.
I reckon a Grimes cover of ‘Girls on Film’ would be excellent.
Arctic Monkeys’ AM is definitely influenced by past sounds but they’re legitimately making waves with guitars. AM is number six (??) on the US Charts and Number 1 in the UK and Australia.
Oh, and Hannah Hunt by Vampire Weekend! It’s not exactly an anthem, but the relaxed-ness and summery vibe of it does it for me.
Riptide by Vance Joy
Get Lucky by Daft Punk
It All Feels Right by Washed Out
Latch by Disclosure
All You’re Waiting For by Classixx
Summer is Done With Us by Palms (!!!)
YES KANYE, YES!
You should do this with Foals, they have a cute warm-up dance.
The album’s been out for a couple of years in Australia, it’s absolutely fantastic. I’d say it’ll likely feature in a few year-end lists.
Lonerism – Tame Impala

I don’t understand hating Del Rey for the sake of hating Del Rey. It’s a well done cover, and it proves that maybe, JUST MAYBE, she doesn’t warrant the hate.
He played solo shows in Australia earlier this year..
Er, that’s Lynch.
I really liked Congratulations. It’s a better product than if they were forced to reuse the ideas from Oracular Spectacular. I have no idea why everyone hated it so much.
Try saying that come the ‘Best of 2012′ lists.
I guarantee you, this is another case of the Vampire Weekend-s.
Loads of pre-album hype that actually IS true.
Hm. Everyone seems to forget the Hot Chip, Bernard Sumner & Hot City collaboration, which was great.
Pharrell, JC & Santogold was better than expected,
Rostam, Kid Cudi & Best Coast sounded better on paper then it did as real music,
Hot Chip, Bernard Sumner and Hot City was a good song, but basically a Hot Chip song,
But Soulja Boy, Matt & Kim, and Andrew WK just don’t fit.
Even if you took out one of the artists, regardless of which you chose, it still wouldn’t work.
I think the sound doesn’t fit the lyrics.
The original was great because the lyrics were disturbing, but the music was bright and colourful but at the same time detatched and unearthly.
This is just stupid.
Urban seems racist.
Um.. 2009 was Sweet Disposition by The Temper Trap. Unescapable during that summer.
Abducted by Cults.
Machu Picchu by The Strokes.
I CAN’T EVEN
The Adele video is amazing.
