this was one of my favorite moments of that night–Swans was still my favorite. The two pieces prior in that segment of the show were mostly about sex, asshole guys, and didn’t have a lot of substance. I can’t say I’m particularly well-versed in either the work of Andrew W.K. or Perfect Pussy, but my opinion of Perfect Pussy increased tremendously hearing this.
Have to go with Caribou.
yet with that said, I’m not crazy about this particular song.
as a self-admitted fan of a lot of mainstream and pop-dance music, but to whom the concept of going to a party or dance is virtually nightmarish, I would listen to it on my own time, at home.
That was immensely enjoyable.
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.
