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.
