1. grizzly bear
2. final fantasy
i=are there going to be better releases than these this year?
MV + EE w/ Bummer Road
ellen allien & apparat
The Pipettes are shit, innit.
but you'd have a hard time persuading me that Mr Beast deserved to top any end-of-year lists
to The Pipettes album than the Mastodon one but it's all opinions.
But I came here for RESULTS!
I still haven't heard it.
one track is a bit rubbish.
It has some dull vocals on it but the track after it, 'Do Not Break', is so good you almost forget about it.
my list still wins. you have ears of shit obviously.
is better than no ears at all. You only chose them because you like the front cover.
...but seriously, grizzly bears cover is a bit dark and shit, but its the best album of the century. this is a true statement
my top-3 isn't the three I posted but it wouldn't include Grizzly Bear's album, very good though it is.
I think it has a nice cover.
i spose it is quite nice. don't get me started on the fant cover though
don't mind The Pipettes' singles, but the album just gets a bit TOO kitsch and cute for my liking.
MV/EE w/ the Bummer Road
The Knife NO WAIT Joanna Newsom NO WAIT Destroyer NO WAIT etc....
until the last two weeks in December.
The Young Knives
Is still ahead of Mastodon for me (oooh, interesting)...not because of any other factors, but because it's so fucking astonishing it makes me want to cry. It's amazing.
I've heard most of Young Machetes- on the stream from their myspace, you understand- and that'll be in my top three as well, probably, it's all I hoped for so far.
That and Mastodon will probably make up my top three. Or Converge, or Isis, but that's coming out probably too late in the year for me to appreciate it (come on, you know Isis).
TV on the Radio - Return to Cookie Mountain
Mission of Burma - The Obliterati
Beirut - Gulag Orkestar
2. Howling Bells
to make you ache...
Certainly not for everyone !
have you heard lullabye arkestra lyle? on constellation, got it through same time as bozulich
1. The Walkmen
i haven't decided on my others. espers, charalambidies, germlin, knife, all in with a shout.
Deathset fo shizz
my brain cannot remember any other albums this year
pretty girls make graves
TV on the Radio
Though still weighing up stuff like The Flaming Lips and Yo La Tengi close by. On a random note two great non-regular albums from this year are The Delgados Peel Sessions one and the R.E.M. Best Of for 1982-1987.
And if I can bend the rules to the point of no return I'll mention The Wrens - OK granted it's a 2nd reissue of an album that came out in 2003 I admit but this is the first time I could get hold of it and it was bloody great
I mean - damn typos >_<
1. the mountain goats
2. xiu xiu
3. of montreal
TV on the radio
wow I think i have the exact same three. I like you cumulous nimbus. although I might put Knife at 2, and FF at 3
yellow house is definitely number one. surprised to not see it on more people's lists actually
yellow house is indeed top notch
it's weird how it seems people in the UK aren't really grabbing onto it
Mastodon, Sika Redem, Immune. I don't know in which order...
It started off pretty slow, though.
I can't decide between Final fantasy, the Knife or CSS :(
just have a top five then. ;)
Emm, I will go with Final Fantasy.
think of three albums from this year that I'd feel comfortable putting in a list like this. Ho hum.
I could do a TOP 100 but not a top 3
brightblack morning light
sonic youth- rather ripped
i am in total agreement :)
...a top 3.
This has been a great year.
In alphabetical order, I would say that my top 3 could possibly contain three of these bands though.....
A Hawk and a hacksaw, Bat for lashes, Beirut, Black Moth Super Rainbow, Casiotone for the Painfully Alone, Colleen, Holy Shit, Joanna Newsom, Lucky Dragons, Man Man, Mates of State, Metallic Falcons, Parenthetical Girls, Sunset Rubdown, Swan Lake, The Blow, The Essex Green, The Hidden Cameras, Tunng, White Magix, Xiu Xiu.
3. Howling Bells.
