This is fun!

1. The National
2. Arcade Fire
3. Modest Mouse
4. Built to Spill
5. Broken Social Scene
6. AC Newman (I know it’s weird to pick him over the band but whatevs)
7. Bloc Party
8. Bright Eyes
9. The Hold Steady
10. The Gaslight Anthem

Speaking of the Macklemore Iggy Azalea, I think it’s worth noting that she might be getting more hate because she seems completely ignorant to the extent that she is appropriating black culture while Macklemore acknowledges and draws awareness to it (I mean the guy has a song called White Privilege).

Just my two cents, I don’t know much about Iggy

This seems like as good of a place as any to say this…

James, thank you so much for your year end song list. That Small Wonder album is seriously life changing. I think I’ve teared up to it more times in the last couple weeks then any other 2014 album (minus wild beasts).

But really, your list was really cool, and it led me to discover the Sharpless album mentioned in this article, as well as Bellows’ Blue Breath.

Also, thank you for introducing me to Kero Kero Bonito and Trace Mountains, both those albums are great.

I’ll give this article a read tomorrow, when I’m not inebriated by 2015 good cheer! I’m confident it’s filled with good stuff

Thanks for the “Holland 1945″ context, I teared up. Great finale.

Great interview! Cool to see how positive of a year Laura’s had, it’s inspiring

Yeah weird for them to completely leave it off this list. It’s a good album, top 10 for sure

Yeah this evaluation is a little premature
