These guys definitely don’t outweird Dirty Projectors. It’s definitely got weird elements, but overall I’d say this is pretty safe music. These guys are sure to explode the way Alt-J did 2 years ago, or like Local Natives before them. That said this album is really great.

Favourite favourite favourite Toronto band. Par for the course here, in the best way.

I’m not sure where exactly I wanted them to go with this, but I still think it’s not quite there. Seems a bit safe but I’m definitely not writing off this comeback yet.

I was lucky enough to have these guys play my old bands EP release last year. They definitely stole the night, and they definitely deserve to get noticed. Not sure one of these songs is earlier than the other though, they were both on Synapses.

Yeah it was really tough to slot them in, but their set at Horseshoe was pretty good.

That synth line after the chorus sounds pretty silly to me.

I’m a little late to the party but here goes. An AOTY for me does or uses something new. For me last year that was dawn of midi. It wasn’t the use of minimalism that got me,. It was that simplicity of the melody and the scarcity of notes that lay the rhythm bare, and boy do those guys fucking murder it. As a musician, this happens to be what I’m into now. For me, it doesn’t have to be particularly relevant or modern, but it’s gotta be original. I should point out that I’ve had no major standouts in this regard (looking at this list and the comments, I’ve got some catchup to do). Maybe Todd Terje because I’ve been into Les Baxter for awhile now, and he takes that music to cool places.

Let Her Go – Mac DeMarco. I would say Passing Out Pieces, but it’s been out for awhile.
