Find Me On:
Pure X’s album is primo. Have been listening to it non-stop.
This is the album that superseded Future Islands’ Singles as my go to listen. Tracks like ‘Heaven’ are just unstoppable and easily make up for their somewhat lacklustre second album. The whole thing is just fantastic.
On the new album Lariat is my favourite, it’s kind of like Malkmus’ version of Real Estate.
Lorde all grown up
wait wait wait, you skipped Mumford & Sons? am I even on stereogum?
phew. just glad to see I’m not alone.
I’d happily cut a lot of their newer stuff in favour of the 2007-2009 years. Oh also, I know TIUF isn’t that popular but it still has some great songs, especially considering the direction that Deerhunter’s sound is now going.
Agree. Rainwater is by far their strongest (and my favourite) release. I find this list to be quite odd in its choices.
Every time I see the name Fiery Furnaces I’m reminded of the song “Frosty Furnaces” by The Devoted Few about how they were really rude and unpleasant when on tour together. It’s actually quite a good song.
Absolutely love Thee Oh Sees’ and Weekend’s contributions
