Plus the last month of 2012.
No Jon Hopkins? Even in the comments? For shame.
Lisbon is on par with You & Me and Bows and Arrows for me, but I didn’t care for Heaven all that much either, I thought it was kinda dull. I’m now extra glad I got to see their last Toronto show with Father John Misty.
Except that Pablo Honey wasn’t the lowest entry.
If it helps, I’ve been downvoting Traci. Not cool.
I’d say it’s groundbreaking to be able to bring psychedelic to the top 40. I mean innovative or not, it’s a superbly crafted album. It also made Brian Wilson go insane. Imagine feeling inadequate after Pet Sounds.
I’d swap Rubber Soul outta my top five for Magical Mystery Tour, and probably change the ordering around a bit. I’d bump Let it Be up a few spots. It’s better than any of the early albums except Hard Days Night.
Goin’ for the worst this week?
Upvote for Dawn of Midi. Favourite album this year by a long shot.
Does anyone even have a favourite new TV show in 2013? Or I guess it could be any TV show season that aired this year. In which case, I missed putting BrBa (obviously).
This man makes nice music.
Jam jam jam
Upvote for anything Nardwuar the human serviette.
Why the downvotes?
Also I was trying to singlehandedly spam this to the top commented sidebar. I’d easily take either/both of these in my top 30.
Was just about to mention that I bet next week we’ll be looking at comments regarding some “Best of” lists.
We have very different taste, but I’m missing some Earl and James Blake, and maybe even Deerhunter’s T.H.M.
Rum raisin has been around for ages.
I relate to Grimes a lot here. I’ve been a vegetarian, and even a vegan at times. At the end of the day, I like eating meat. I like the taste and texture. That fatty protein that you can’t replace. But for environmental, and ethical reasons I like to cut back as much as I can. I realize the word for that is flexatarian. But I think that word sounds stupid, so I just don’t call it anything.
I think you can still identify as a vegan and give in to those urges every once and a while. It’s much easier than saying “I’m a vegan, but every so often I’ll eat ethically produced dairy products, or meat at my grandparents because they only ever cook with meat, and maybe an egg because it’s really fucking hard to find cakes that don’t have egg in it”.
Yeah, but at least he didn’t do this
One word – Bodhisattva
It’s easy to see why the “disciplined” line could be offensive. But it wasn’t said as an afterthought, it was something the writer felt at the time. Without context, I have a hard time saying whether it’s offensive or not.
Regarding Control, all it seems to me that he’s doing is setting his own bar. He wants to be the best. And he’s listing all the people he wants to be better than. I don’t think it’s anything but a compliment, and I never understood why it was a big deal. I thought it was silly then, and even sillier now. I think it’s important to note that he says “I’m TRYNA murda you n*****s”.
I’d call you a reasonable person.
Or maybe this whole article is a backhanded tribute, just like “Control”! It all makes sense now.
I don’t think it was anything to get upset about. That said, it wasn’t a good article. I mean it’s silly to drag up Control again, especially when it wasn’t really anything to make a fuss over in the first place. I guess kudos to the writer for touching on the “backhanded tribute” aspect.
