It's mine!!!!!!



Of course, I haven't listened to the new Ducky Boys yet. Who am I kidding, they haven't put out an album worthy of a best of list since 2004. I'm sure it's good, but i doubt it's as amazing as 3 chords was.

I like Kurt Vile, too. And ive listened to Delta Machine quite a few times. It disappoints me greatly I'm not the lone champion of the bad religion and dropkick murphys albums on the year. That used to be my job. While the BR album was decent and I listened to it a whole bunch when I got it, I haven't gone back to it since. And I've made my opinion on the current state of dkm well-known by now.

It's going to be a tough year to pick 15 albums.

Sigur Ros
DJ Koze
Foxygen
The Thermals
Camera Obscura
MBV
Flaming Lips
Boards of Canada
Deerhunter

Still haven't heard After Dark 2, waiting for the physical release (sounds gross every time I write that). I also really like Deafheaven, but still waiting for my copy to arrive. Wish more people would listen to the DJ Koze album.
