Find Me On:
The show hasn’t even started and Pink already one something for that god awful song. Good start!
This list just proves overall that Pitchfork just can’t allow themselves to put more than 1 metal album on their year end lists.
I’m happy for Pallbearer, and their album definitely deserves its recognition, but I really think it was a shame that Converge and Baroness got no recognition whatsoever.
Pretty decent list overall, but I feel like they were definitely trying to throw one too many curveballs with all the non-BNM choices and left out some great albums in the process (what happened to Mount Eerie?)
Anyone else blown away by the fact that they forgot “I’ll Be Alright” by Passion Pit? It seemed like it would easily make the top 20 earlier this year
He’s starting to lose a little weight, so I think he’s less appealing now
ehh, it just seems like a lot of what she does is a put on. She does way too much for the sake of attention for me to really ever consider her charming or cute or anything like that. But hey, that’s just me.
Why, oh why do people find Claire Boucher attractive, or even cute in any way for that matter. I actually had to vote “Not Grimes” because she just rubs me in such a wrong way. I don’t even really hate her music, but the fact that so many people have a legitimate crush on her just blows my mind.
Alexis Krauss could actually have gotten my vote, but I really don’t like the image that she’s pulling these days. Honestly, she’s way more attractive without the ridiculous makeup and leather outfits.
Sad to see no love for Laurel Halo, in my opinion she’s incredibly underrated.
AND WHERE THE FUCK IS MC RIDE???
Cloud Nothings – Attack On Memory
I really hope nobody’s voting for Grimes for indie crush
Sad to see that Selenelion by Vaura got so overlooked this year, it was definitely one of the most unique metal albums to come out in a while. Also there were some great black metal releases this year (Krallice, Nachtmystium, Ash Borer).
I do think that Converge and Baroness are very fitting for the top spots, but personally I’d flip their positions. Nothing else sounded like that Baroness album this year, and it totally reinvented the band
So i’ts agreed that we’re all going to pretend ¡Dos! never happened, right?
I honestly thought Transcendental Youth was one of the more instantly likable albums The Mountain Goats have released since The Sunset Tree. Like you said, most of their albums take a little bit of time to get into (it took me almost a year to get the full jist of Tallahassee, which is now one of my favorite albums), but come on, how could you not instantly fall for those horns in “Cry For Judas” and “In Memory of Satan”? Also no song on this album seems to drag on or overstay its welcome, which tends to happen a lot on Mountain Goats albums.
