  1. Nice list man, your taste has come a long way. Very p4k influenced, but also very good! I agree MPP is the best of the year.

    I like this blog.

      • Yeah, it’s a useful website, and I usually check out what they put on their Best New Music page, but it’s good to branch out. If they give an album a mediocre rating, that album ends up being overlooked by a lot of people. And it might be really great. The scores are really meaningless, just one person’s opinion. Tiny Mix Tapes is pretty good too. But most of the time I just find new music on blogs that post the albums and I don’t read any reviews at all. Here’s a pretty good blog to download from I recently found:

  2. Grizzly Bear at no. 8?! Are you INSANE?! Sorry, but I guess I cannot read other people’s best album lists without my Ed Droste-colored glasses swaying my opinion a bit.

    And I feel very alone when I say this but I just can’t get on board with the Dirty Projectors, because of their voices…no. Just no.

    And if your looking for another decent place to find music,I’d recommed They just did a 50 best albums of the decade list and it is quite good.

    • I do like Grizzly Bear, I like Horn of Plenty and Yellow House a little better then Veckatimist. I got to see them perform with Beach House this year and that was really cool.

      Yeah, stereogum is a cool site, I did not know they had that list up though, thanks, I haven’t visited it in a while.
