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

Just listened to your list James. Lots of awesome stuff I haven’t heard!

Yeah I love the ambiguity in that lyric. Is the pressure cooker turned up TO high or is it turn up TOO high. Personally I think it’s turned up “too high” and it is a metaphor for a family about to boil over, but I think that says more about me as a listener. Depth and ambiguity is present in all art that is worthwhile and nothing exemplified this better in 2014 than “Too Many Cooks”.

I like this idea.

Best Line: “I want a love that falls as fast as a body from the balcony” – Mitski

Best Verse:
“How many people rise and think
Oh good the stranger’s body’ s still here
Our arrangement hasn’t changed
Now I’ve got a lifetime to consider all the ways
I grow more disappointing to you as my beauty warps and fades
I suspect you feel the same
When I was young I dreamt of a passionate obligation to a roommate” – Father John MIsty

Best Song Lyrically: Either “Stoicville” by T-Pain or “Content Nausea” by Parkay Quarts

I was actually just thinking the other day what song I would pick from Bury Me At Makeout Creek to be the “best” and I also thought it was First Love / Late Spring! I think that song does the best job at encapsulating all the things that are so great about that album, followed closely by Townie and Texas Reznikoff
