  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: http://dayvanzombear.blogspot.com/

  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 stereogum.com. 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.
