Find Me On:
I’d switch Debut and Vespertine but otherwise pretty good. I don’t think I’d be able to choose between Post and Homogenic, but the very first time I heard Bjork Post had just come out and I bought it on a whim due to a small bit in Rolling Stone describing her as an icelandic pixie or something weird like that.
When I put that CD in my portable player and that fucking explosion blasted my ears cause the volume was at max (accidentally) at the start of Army of Me I was forever changed.
I guess that makes Post my #1.
I gotta agree with this. The Hot Rock is criminally underrated and one of their best (their best imho). All Hands has gotta be their worst.
Purity Ring – Shrines
Beach House’s Wild has to be better than the mediocre Best Coast one.
Lost my virginity to and then nothing turned itself inside out… #1 in my book.
Damn, so many good songs on this album. The best ohs in the business on Oh!
Sympathy live was incredibly powerful. I go back and forth between this album and The Hot Rock as my favorite.
There’s a really great boot of one of their shows at the Great American Music Hall in San Francisco in February 2003. It rivals the Emmaboda Fest boot as their top two or three.
Came here to say this. This song is just glorious.
I’m not a huge fan of her most recent albums, but Dry/Rid of Me/To Bring you my love/Is this desire/Stories is just a ridiculous run.
Even her b-sides are incredible. Uh Huh Her (the actual song only available on the itunes original thing) is one of the scariest and most powerful songs I’ve ever heard.
Man, I can’t wait for this album.
In the Nardwuar interview with Cults they ripped into Bandcamp. They wanted to give away their songs for free, but Bandcamp said that they were becoming too popular so they would have to charge for their songs or pay $75 for every 1000 downloads or something.
Obviously Cults has no issues now that they are major label but Bandcamp doesn’t seem to be the end all answer for every band.
The Bonnaroo fiasco was amazing, with the cherry on top being the tirade posted on his blog (typed so hard on his macbook air he almost broke it).
Squid brains were never the same after that.
Did you guys listen to the Japandroids album via the shitty leak? I mean it’s not even released yet so I don’t know how it’s on this list.
I think the web download on Polyvinyl’s site comes up in a bit for those who purchased but other than that..
He was there last year and his performance sucked.
Whoa. I think I have the original album and a bunch of 7″s somewhere in my record box.
I went back to listen to it and it’s just bits and pieces. Someone has to have captured the full stream…
Taylor Swift? Really?
Wow.. those dates with Fever Ray would be awesome.
