Find Me On:
Check out Heartbeats and Marble House. This is why alot of people care. But we also love the experimental side of things. I’d say go ahead and check out Mountains – Centrailia.
There are glaring similarities between this and the new Flaming Lips album. Both are challenging, but sure to reward with repeat listens. Also, both have a couple bangers to please the pop fan in all of us. But neither are pop albums. Far from it. These are bands still interested in creating. Love them more for it.
” I can understand the general indie-rock annoyance of Mumford & Sons; they do plenty of annoying shit”
I don’t know if I agree with the ordering of this list….but putting Clouds Taste Metallic at number 1 makes me REALLY happy. The Soft Bulletin may be their most important album, but CTM has always been my favorite. Oh, and anyone who didn’t listen to Zaireeka in the way it was intended to be heard missed out on something monumental.
The queen of forest elves shall return…..unannounced…as she’s done before.
Heck yeah, check that out. He’s a great performer. Come to think of it, I don’t this his album is that great…..It’s more about his energy, which comes across far better live.
Money Store > No Love Deep Web. Aesop Rock’s Skelethon? Also, I’d put Macklemore and Ryan Lewis on any best of hip hop list (but I’m from the pacific NW, so I’m a little biased).
Chan Marshall should be on this list somewhere. I have mixed feelings about her latest album, but as a human being she is about as beautiful as we get.
Wow. This makes the new Prince Rama album feel nothing short of a revolution.
Ween best songs: Listen to the Mollusk. They were on 10. And took it to 11.
learnin to love and my own bare hands are my favorites on that album, probably only after hearing them live.
not mine, but bold choice. It is tied for my favorite song on Quebec (with Happy Colored Marbles)
1) The Mollusk
2) Chocolate and Cheese
3) Pure Guava
6) The Pod
7) White Pepper
8)12 Country Golden Greats
As I’ve said about the recent Van Halen album….this is way better than it has any right to be.
Unlike pretty much everyone else, I think Reinhold Messner is by far their best album, and the first of these two tracks certainly reminds me of the bombast that was that album. I’m unexpectedly excited for this.
the Tripping Daisy’s Jesus Hits Like an Atom Bomb and King’s Missile’s Happy Hour are both records I’d be stoked to find at any used record store.
I still use and love Grooveshark. Not sure what Spotify does better. Compensation is detailed here: http://www.grooveshark.com/compensation
The White Stripes. Ween. Underworld (w/ Emerson) The Orb (Paterson and Thrash). Clap your hands say yeah (the band before the hiatus). Fugazi. Tripping Daisy. Tool. Sleater Kinney. Sonic Youth. Isis. Dresden Dolls. Maybe not all top 10, but certainly all bands I want to see.
Although I’ve only listened to the first three songs, I really just want to throw in Mclusky Do Dallas and really rock out. That being said, the Men album that is being hailed around these parts is actually pretty inspired.
Flood produced Orbital album….(“never” is great)….New Radiohead. Don’t be surprised if a new Daft Punk album hits you over the head. I’m throwing a new GYBE! album for no apparent reason. New Olivia Tremor Control. New Spoon (Just cause it’s likely). New Portishead. New Sage Francis. New Bill Callahan (this guy releases an amazing album every year).
video or not, this is a rally call to Trent. How to Destroy needs to get their LP out cause these guys are good (and there can only be one)
Nothing by Sufjan Stevens, Joanna Newsom, Sigur Ros, Wilco, Fleet Foxes, Gorky’s Zygotic Mynci, The Flaming Lips, Mclusky, Interpol, the Beta Band….don’t get my wrong, this list tries and hits includes a lot of good stuff……but Kelly Clarkson?
