Really not getting the praise for these new Grizzly Bear songs, sound like pale imitations of their previous stuff. Then again, they're one of my many favorite bands (Arcade Fire, LCD Soundsystem, QOTSA, The National) whose new tracks has left me cold so far this year, so maybe I'm just getting old :(

Yes! Ten Love Songs was criminally underrated, so hope this one gets a bit more attention.

NME's choice for number 1 is gonna be real popular on here...

Yep, it's so good. Her debut album was such an overlooked gem, hope this follow-up gets a bit more attention.

Hopefully we're getting a Springtime Carnivore solo record this year as well....Her debut was fantastic.

Beverly - The Blue Swell (such a huge improvement over their debut I think) Charlie Hiton - Palana (very Broadcasty)

Looks like the Weezer return to form with EWBAITE was very short lived

It might not be the 'absolute shitshow' that Madonna's song was, but it ain't too much better.

If you go to NPR's site itself the stream seems fine (worked for me in Copenhagen anway).

People actually listened to Mosquito past the first week of release? Uh, biggest let down of the year so far. On the other hand, yay for Laura Marling! Once I Was An Eagle is a masterpiece.

A good record, but certainly their weakest effort. I love the fact that the YYYs are a chameleon-like rock group, and I'm really not longing for a return to the garage rock of Fever To Tell, but I just wish the songs on Mosquito had a bit more energy. It's a very lethargic record, and I've got to agree with previous posters that the rockier numbers (Mosquito, Area 51) never really get going. In fact the much criticized rap spot is about the only thing that has a bit of zip to it.

As much as I love Johnny Marr with every fibre of my being...bit boring ain't it?

Still my favourite album of the year, far better than anything she's done with Vivian Girls. Plus, her hair...goddammit *collapses*

"and it seemed to augur the best Shins album since, perhaps, Oh Inverted World." But, but, Chutes Too Narrow is clearly their best album...right? Port of Morrow is nice though. I think there's a danger that we undervalue a talent like Mercer, who can summon up breezy, hummable melodies whenever the hell he feels like. That's not easy.
