First off, good on you for including Dale Earnhardt Jr Jr in this list. I've caught them live in Detroit a few times, and, as you've said, their name belies the beautiful sounds coming out of them. "God Only Knows" is a gorgeous cover. There is a hell of a lot of chllwave on this list, which I'm not always into. Some standouts: Braids: that track is like a sparkly bouncy ball rolling down the street. Video concept? Cloud Nothings: Even the ooh ooh oohs sneer. Glasser: I sent the link out to a friend before the song was even over. Mountain Man: Haunting. Perfume Genius: I expected to be cynical, but the simple beauty sucked the evil out of me...for 2:44. Thanks for a list!

This sounds like leftover soundtrack music from Flash Gordon.

Pretty! I hope the final cut is stripped down like this demo.

I'm loving this trend of "wooo"s and "yeah"s and handclaps. Though it's got that electro feel, there's also some humanity coming back into pop. Unless, the handclaps are electronically generated. Then it doesn't count. ;)

Spooky, moody. I like it! Reminds me a bit of Dead Man's Bones, with some more industrial mixed in.
