Find Me On:
Not a fan of Pitchfork, but this is not a bad list. They Put Destroyer at number 2 for the year which I have to agree with, where a lot of other lists ignored it alltogether. Good for Pitchfork on that one. Also having Fleet Foxes, St. Vincent, James Blake & Tune-yards in the top 15 is great.
People do realize The Vaccines put out their debut album this year, right? It seems like no one knows this. It was a fantastic album.
Yea, this list is much better than the stereogums album list. Not how I would do it, I think Battles – Ice Cream needs to be on here somewhere, as well as 1 or 2 others, but not bad.
No Los Angeles date, but in Oakland April 13th, and Arizona April 20th? Looks like someone is a lock for Coachella.
Its interesting how every list seems to ignore Destroyer, yet every comment section cries out for the lack of Destroyer. a Music blog reader / writer disconnect it seems. I agree that it was one of the best albums of the year, in my top 3 for sure.
yes, becuase Girls at #1 is in no way Pitchfork-esque. hahaha.
Good point. Hello Sadness is fantastic.
Drake??? with St. Vincent at 32 and Tune-yards are 46? What kind of music blog do I think I’ve been reading?
True, Sound Kapital was great. And, I am a Decemberists fan, have been for years, but was I the only one really not digging this newest album? These listers seem to love it.
No Beirut? Come on Uncut… wait… what the hell is uncut?
