I was just thinking earlier today that I'd pretty much entirely forgotten about that album. I don't think I've listened to it since a week or to after it was released, but I absolutely loved it for those few weeks. Need to give it some more spins again.

YouPubes is a much safer bet.

This takes the title of most simultaneously awful and awesome video of 2009, though mostly awful:

YouTube - The Horrors - "Mirror's Image" official music video premiere

i mean, it's not bad. maybe it's just a victim of its own hype for me. i didn't listen to it until a month after its release, and it didn't come close to living up to the hype.

I agree. I came to it without any hype, though, for whatever that's worth. "Mediocre" is pretty much my word for every Grizzly Bear release. C'est la vie, though. One can't love 'em all.

I think this deserves a year end repost. By far my favourite televised performance of the year. The only problem is that the album version sounds inferior now

YouTube - Grizzly Bear - "Ready, Able" on Letterman 7/16 (TheAudioPerv.com)

So i thought it would be easier for me to not order them and just write a blurb of thoughts about each album. This is proving to take far more time than I thought, and I'm almost considering just ordering them and deleting the comments now.

I haven't made a specific list yet, but after hearing Islands' Vapours today I really think it should be on there.

I keep forgetting that Islands is still going. That's been a very quietly consistent band, right there. They steadily fly just right under the radar.

Doh! I just deleted the 3 or 4 I'd written as they were all getting lengthy and probably boring for anyone other than myself to read! The unranked list is pretty much done though, will be posting soon.

Now I will spend the rest of my New Year's Eve weeping bitter tears.
