That was The Verve Pipe with “The Freshmen”, not Verve. Verve had Bitter Sweet Symphony and Lucky Man. I also assume the concert was back in the 90s when Bitter Sweet Symphony was a huge hit.
From start to finish, Parachutes is by far their best album.
Hmm… Apparently you guys didn’t listen to Devotion a lot. You missed this gem.
Arctic Monkeys – Do I Wanna Know?
Daft Punk feat. Panda Bear – Doin’ It Right
You missed these two.
Foals – Bad Habit (Official Video)
Arctic Monkeys – Do I Wanna Know? (Official Video)
Here are my top 10 in no specific order, since Stereogum’s top 10 is bunk.
1) Conversation 16
2) Slipping Husband
3) Baby, We’ll Be Fine
4) Cardinal Song
6) Squalor Victoria
7) Mistaken For Strangers
8) Guest Room
9) Bloodbuzz Ohio
10) Val Jester
‘Alligator’ and ‘Sad Songs For Dirty Lovers’ were both excellent albums, and far less upbeat than their successors. Definitely worth a listen.
What??? No “Boss of Me”?
Umm… what about “I’ll Stand By You”?
My Girls and Peacebone should be on there. I’m kinda surprised My Girls wasn’t even listed. That would have been my choice for #1.
Beach House – Lazuli is easily the song of Summer 2012. My second choice would be Cat Power – Ruin.
