I enjoy when Anthony Gonzalez incorporates sax into his music.
Agalloch, Alcest, and Wolves in the Throne Room? I must be dreaming.
I guess I just feel based on output of new music, by up and coming artists, and surprise releases I just question whether those albums are truly great, or are just picked because of name recognition.
I should preface that I don’t mind with readers here nearly as much as I would with someone into strictly top 40, since I can be more certain readers here exposed themselves to a larger variety and quantity of music than the typical top 40 listener would.
Didn’t mean to criticize ‘gum readers tastes it it was taken that way.
Actually liking the back end of this one more than the top. Very surprised The National is that high (I liked it, but based on buzz was not expecting that high of a finish). I think why I dislike the top 5 here so much is it is just kind of boring, it’s like a bunch of indie standards in my opinion. The kind of list that could be put together in January based on projected album releases.
I’d maybe switch Migos with Pusha T, but I can’t say the top 10 look all too surprising.
Ah, 4 of my top 5 didn’t fair too well. James Blake, Rhye, Pusha T, and Fuck Buttons not seeming to make the list. Maybe I missed them. At least I liked them immensely.
Glad I didn’t drop any money on that yet, I guess.
I was secretly wishing I’d see Maria on there as well; knew it was a longshot.
I hadn’t listened to The xx in a while, and then I heard Angels. This had the misfortune of coming along after I overloaded on ethereal auditory sex. Not bad, but Angels did a lot more for me.
I will probably give it a spin, but I am totally fine keeping my Lana Del Rey collection to just Video Games and Blue Jeans.
I am trying to justify my glee over what Anonymous did…
This list would be super original if it had these as the top 5 then? Coldplay, Britney Spears, Lady Gaga and Selena Gomez & the Scene and Childish Gambino — not one was BNM’d!
I approach my commenting here as I do life: no intention of having sex. It has worked marvelously for me in both not having sex and not making top comments, but I cannot claim this will bring you any more understanding or happiness.
I feel like I have to give Fucked Up more of a shot than I did. I typically enjoy BNM’s, but FU did absolutely nothing for me.
Close to impeccable. Maybe Austra, if I had to place some judgement on it.
Indeed, I think Die may be my personal favorite, though Vomit is ridiculously cool even if I thought I was listening to some unknown Pink Floyd track at the end.
I love her voice. I think partially why I like her album (granted not the best of 2011 by a good bit) is that for once it is something extremely popular that I can listen to and think, “this is quality music.” Unlike Lady Gaga and Britney which, while I love both, I completely understand the indie blog music community hating upon them vigorously. –just why I like Adele, probably entirely unhelpful to you.
Again, no Wild Beasts and worse, no M83. Unacceptable. I guess I’ll have to go listen to my top 5 and solace myself.
Okay, looked up the definition. I was off, I am actually not a lamestreamer. If I was, I’d listen to Radiohead and NMH with much gusto.
I guess I am a “Lamestreamer”. I am not up to date on my street lingo so I am not sure what it means, but I am guessing it is along the lines of: someone who seeks out music they like, not keeping their knowledge to just the radio, and listens to music they like; that’s me.
So hot. Mind blown.
Got to see this at the Black Cat first day of the tour. It was magnificent. One of the best experiences in my entire life.
I think I actually prefer the Wild Beasts remix of You and I. Maybe because I really like the original Marry the Night and not the original You and I?
Zooey and Kim are going to move to NY and get married. I see it now.
So…she’s not out of a job?
