I guess Soundcloud took it down? Er…at least I’m getting a 404 error.
I confess I’ve never listened to Against Me! until this morning because I’m not really into punk, but this shit is killer. Getting a strong Hedwig and the Angry Inch vibe here (which considering the circumstances is probably just projection, but whatever).
Studio-wise, I totally agree. But they still make it all work live. I’m just excited that they’ll be playing new songs next time I see them.
[insert comment downplaying Deafheaven's contribution because "everyone's freaking out about them" and i don't want to look like a lemming here]
These Alcest songs are the shit. Even if it is a retread, it’s a retread of things I really, really like.
I feel like you didn’t read the article.
Breaking Bad choosing Junip’s “Line of Fire” for the series finale promo spots was also a stroke of genius.
The Hold Steady and Fucked up would be my #1 and #2 for sure.
“Like a Rolling Stone” not being the #1 song would be enough of a slap in the face, but not even including it on the list is just laughable.
Great record that has been getting no love.
That’s what bumped it up to #1, honestly. Not only do I absolutely love the song, but now it’s forever synonymous with the Breaking Bad finale. Hard to top that.
Suspicious in what way? Do you think they’re lying?
Surprised by that as well. I had a really tough time choosing which CHVRCHES song to put in my top 10, actually. There’s at least 3 on that record that I thought were deserving. Also good call on “Song for Zula”. I had to go with “The Quotidian Beasts,” but “Song for Zula” was right there with it.
Who downvotes somebody else’s top 10 list when that’s exactly what we’re supposed to be doing here?
10. Haim – “Falling”
9. Lorde – “Royals”
8. Local Natives – “Colombia”
7. Phosphorescent – “The Quotidian Beasts”
6. MS MR – “Bones”
5. Autre Ne Veut – “Play by Play”
4. Charli XCX – “Nuclear Seasons”
3. Kurt Vile – “Wakin on a Pretty Day”
2. CHVRCHES – “Gun”
1. Junip – “Line of Fire”
Black Dahlia Murder, Skeletonwitch, and Revocation are all in my top 10 metal albums of the year. Bummed to not see them here.
LOL this list
Why would he look like a cross between Jeff Foxworthy and Owen Wilson?
Every Shining Time You Arrive. How It Feels To Be Something On.
Those are pretty glaring omissions. In fact, the lack of Every Shining Time You Arrive pretty much makes this list bunk.
Yes. Hence the comment.
God I hate internet tough guys.
It almost seems like he’s talking more about the superior sound quality of vinyl than griping about the Spotify’s low payouts.
Oh, man, this is good. I’m totally going to go listen to Breakers now.
I thought I read somewhere that they were from Texas and that it was just the band that was formed in Quebec, but now that I’ve looked again I see his wife is from there. I didn’t know that. So…ignore the pretentious thing and pretend like I wasn’t ignorant.
And I realize there was some of that on previous albums. It bothered me then, too.
Does the singing in French rub anyone else the wrong way? It comes off as WAY pretentious to me.
