Love the variety of genres thrown in there and there is some stuff i haven’t heard that I’ll need to definitely check out before I finish my own list. That being said, I am sad Boards of Canada, Mazzy Star, and No Joy are not on that list which were some of my favourite albums this year

My harmonica version will blow all out of the water. So let’s mix my harmonica version with the kazoo, xylophones and theremin versions and get Pitchfork’s best album of the year (yes I’m ambitious)

August 8, 2012 on New Beck Album Song Reader Only Available As Sheet Music

Those EDMrs my biggest complaint of the weekend. A few friends had the unfortunate task of heading to Perry’s (EDM stage) for Little Dragon and apparently all the crowd did during the set, was stand around in circles talking to each other and texting their friends (guess not enough drops). Also lots of pick-pocketing going on in there. But these reviews were amazing to read coming back from the festival. Caught the essence of the festival pretty well

They call it a place of “love and peace” but it’s followed by a dude just shooting down a couple of zombies who represent the “mainstream masses”. That’s just rude juggalos

Only problem with Bandcamp as a typical consumer is that it is not as easy to use as iTunes or Spotify, however I do like the model that they have in place.

June 19, 2012 on David Lowery Blasts NPR Intern On File-Sharing

My system for the past few years has been essentially to stream albums, get free downloads that are offered on sites like this one, spotify (since last year). If I really like the album I go ahead and buy it. If there are only a couple of songs that I like, I don’t bother with buying the whole thing. I probably own 100 CDs most of them purchased within the last few years, and many of them used (which I’m not even sure the artists get paid for used CDs, [pretty sure they don’t]).

Essentially if services like spotify don’t make enough money to please artists, labels, etc. Then I have no problem with adding more ads if it means I have a chance to listen to an album before I go out and shell out money for it.

After considering some great songs that are mentioned quite a lot in this board I will go ahead and cast my vote for Beach House – Lazuii

I just go to the Prosthetic Body Parts Costco and load up my truck for Halloween. But if you’re willing to get me some good deals on fake heads I’m all for it

You all have no idea how happy I am that Chairlift is so high up. I am in love with that album and was beginning to think that I was crazy/insane that I have that album in the top 3 as well. Good to see I’m not the only crazy one
