Yes, and I expect it to win. Oh, wait — the “Kids” video was released this year. That has the creep vote and the Joanna Newsom is God vote locked.
I see where a lot of commenters are coming from. This list is generally light and predictable. When I see a list what I’m looking for is artists or albums I’ve never heard of or listened to. “Really, that album is #7 of the year? I gotta check that out.” If you don’t like these lists, I’d suggest taking the numbers associated with placement off. Then you just see a list of albums someone or some collective liked.
I think these lists are very interesting, though. Especially since music magazines are virtually dead. This is 2000-2009 in music according to Paste, so check out what’s on here, and try not to focus on what’s absent from here. If nothing else, you realize something about Paste’s taste.
Moreover, guys, we’ve only just begun with these decade lists! Come on — I can’t be the only one that’s a little bit excited . . .
Sundance award? I think the 2011 Oscar for Best Picture is in the bag. Sorry, Iron Man 2.
The soundtrack isn’t miles more “indie” than the last one. All these bands are pretty accessible. Alexandra Patsavas isn’t tossing No Age or Vivian Girls at you. I also bet that, however good the songs end up being (Death Cab’s song is terrific for now), they will be overdone for thematic purposes.
Sample lyrics. “Oh Bryn! You see through the dark / Right past the fireflies that sleep in my heart”
“Then I see you — you’re walking cross the campus / Cruel professor, studying romances / How am I supposed to pretend / I never want to see you again?
“Johanna drove slowly into the city; The Hudson River all filled with snow”
Alice has a point. But, uh, we all kind of knew this already.
Next they’ll have Kurt playing songs he specifically said he hates.
Lil Wayne. Such a vast unorganized discography. You could fish out his 15-20 best tracks and get a hell of a compilation. “A Milli” to start it off.
That’s pretty sad. Get off this site.
Put things in perspective. It’s just an album title.
Actually, I was going to play the dissenter but I can’t — that title is somethiing I would shrug off in seventh grade. Maybe they’re trying for the middle school demographic in this Guitar Hero age. I’m not going to cry over it though, jeez.
I’ve got another crazy theory. Maybe someone from Stereogum is behind all of this!
Honestly though I wouldn’t doubt a Monday EP. I mean, is there anything Radiohead could do that would ignite surprise?
Too bad identity is pretty irrelevant on a site like this anyway. Regardless, you didn’t win. About four or five people were rude. You shouldn’t be glad that your trolling methods were in the least bit successful. You should be ashamed you have to resort to trolling in the first place. I don’t think even those four or five that were rude were doing it for anything other than poor humor. And Holly (+ impersonators), your comments were very amusing and thus we win.
Radiohead can make people overreact. Just look at Pitchfork’s review of Kid A.
If Edward Cullen likes this song, than I like this song. No seriously though it’s about three times better than Harry Patch. Right on about the b-side feel of the track. LYRICS PLEASE.
This show is getting worse and worse. They’re more enthused about wrapping it up than actually reviewing the songs.
Eh, someone will drag me to New Moon (myself). By this news I expect a throroughly indie experience at my local AMC.
Ha, Vivian Girls and No Age together. Kinda hot, but seriously, is there anything indier than that picture?
Better than the (500) Days of Summer trailer.
