I've never really heard anything by Talking Heads live, though they're one of the most acclaimed live bands of the '80s.

Diving in head first with The Name of this Band is Talking Heads. It's amazing, the version of Psycho Killer on there is some next-level shit. This is heyday Talking Heads too, Remain in Light era.

For the last two months I thought they stopped making my facewash and ended up swapping brands. Turns out they just completely changed the package. Used to be green, now it's white. Way to blend in, jerks

Does Jack White ever play Union Forever live? By far my favourite tune of his

So will Tame Impala be worth the 33 clams it'll cost to go them them on a Saturday night right before Thanksgiving week?

I loved Tame Impala's show, and the new songs sound great. If you already like their music, there's no reason that you wouldn't enjoy them live.

If you want to spoil it for yourself a bit, this probably kicks all kinds of ass:

Damn. 45 minutes. I'm on the verge of hauling my desktop over to a fabulous friend's house because my iPhoto is being a dick. Maybe I'll watch that on my husband's desktop later on. he's out of town right now. He'll never know.

Doesn't seem worth the effort of hauling that many clams from a fishmongerer to a concert venue. You think they'd prefer to take currency in exchange for their music, not mollusks. Australians are weird.

So here is what I threw together for the "People's List" over at Pitchfork, for anyone who might be interested:

 

1. Radiohead: In Rainbows
2. Bjork: Homogenic
3. Radiohead: Kid A
4. The National: Alligator
5. Robert Plant & Alison Krauss: Raising Sand
6. Fleet Foxes: Fleet Foxes
7. Radiohead: OK Computer
8. The White Stripes: De Stijl
9. Arcade Fire: Funeral
10. The National: High Violet

11. Feist: Let It Die
12. Radiohead: Hail to the Thief
13. U2: Pop
14. LCD Soundsystem: Sound of Silver
15. Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds: No More Shall We Part
16. Depeche Mode: Playing the Angel
17. Antony & The Johnsons: I Am a Bird Now
18. Sufjan Stevens: Seven Swans
19. Tom Waits: Mule Variations
20. Iron & Wine: The Shepherd’s Dog

21. Hercules & Love Affair: Hercules & Love Affair
22. Burial: Untrue
23. The National: Boxer
24. Modest Mouse: The Lonesome Crowded West
25. Radiohead: The King of Limbs
26. R.E.M.: New Adventures in Hi-Fi
27. Morrissey: You Are the Quarry
28: The White Stripes: White Blood Cells
29. Portishead: Third
30. Bat for Lashes: Two Suns

31. St. Vincent: Strange Mercy
32. Beach House: Teen Dream
33. Bruce Springsteen: Magic
34. The Horrors: Primary Colours
35. Robert Plant: Dreamland
36. Cut Copy: In Ghost Colours
37. Los Campesinos!: We Are Beautiful, We Are Doomed
38. The Who: Endless Wire
39. Sigur Ros: Agaetis Byrjun
40. Grizzly Bear: Yellow House

41. Arcade Fire: Neon Bible
42. Antony & The Johnsons: The Crying Light

Ranking them was incredibly difficult. I would say that any entries after #20 or so are basically interchangeable.

Looks good, lots of albums that would definitely be on a list of mine. Yeah, I think I'd cry trying to rank my favorite albums. I hate the idea of "I like this one more than this one" for some reason. I feel like I enjoy different albums or types of music for complete different reasons, so they shouldn't be graded on the same scales. Something like that. I just hate ranking things I guess.

Yeah, the whole thing is a bit of a futile exercise at its core. I tried to rank them based on innovation, consistency of vision, strength of songs, and general atmosphere, all the while understanding how incredibly vague all those criteria are. I feel pretty assured about my top ten, but, like I said, after that the order could be drastically altered on any given day.

Part of you dies whenever the list thread is bumped, doesn't it?

I created the thread idea in Bang and Clatter, so no. I have no problem with lists. I just don't like ranking things, it takes everything I like about music and turns it into douchery.
