Agreed. The poppy songs are crappy in comparison to the heavier ones.

The poppy ones remind me of stiff little fingers, and make me forget they're mostly just hipster bullshit. So I like the poppies ones.

I like the poppy ones, just not Fall In.

I'm still amazed at how much Stay Useless sounds like a Strokes song. I seriously believe you could put it on Is This It and no-one would notice that it's from a different band.

To give myself something to do, I broke down writing up a list of my top 50 into several posts. I'm finally done, so I will now post here my top ten:

Ashley’s Top Albums of 2012: 10-1 « An Ocean of Noise

Feel free to read the rest of course

It's probably that, what a horrific book.

Except that the singer sounds absolutely nothing like Julian Casablancas...

I wasn't hugely fond of Attack on Memory, but it is good to see a Cleveland band making good.

Shows, along with mini-review

1. The Joy Formidable at Terminal 5 - What an explosive show. Even without a great view, the band's energy was unreal. Not only is Ritzy Byran a fantastic guitarist, but she is an incredibly fiesty, frantic and compelling front woman. The drummer came out dress as a giant lobster for the encore, just for the hell of it. And he still pounded the hell out of the drums. Fantastic show.

2. Pulp at Radio City Music Hall - Pulp looked like they were having an absolute thrill onstage, especially Jarvis Cocker, who retains all the charm and wit he's known for on record during his onstage dialogue with the crowd. Very happy my show got "Monday Morning" and "Sunrise". Of course, the hits were great too.

3. Metric at Radio City Music Hall - Metric is always a captivating live band that seemed built for bigger venues than they had played in the past. They sounded amazing with Radio City's acoustics. Plus, Lou Reed came out to sing "The Wanderlust" and "Pale Blue Eyes". The show ended with an acoustic version of "Gimme Sympathy" that sounded surprisingly good.

4. Governor's Ball at Randall's Island - This year's festival was miles ahead of 2011's electronica-heavy set. I only went on the indie rock day of the festival. The day’s highlights were Cults, Fiona Apple, Modest Mouse and Beck. Although I’ve heard people complain about how disinterested Beck seems nowadays live, I think this mini-tour has breathed a little more energy into him, especially after being off the road for four years. I got hear my favorite Sea Change song, β€œSunday Sun,” which was a nice treat. Even the two women tripping out behind me couldn’t hinder that concert for me!

5. Sharon Van Etten at Bowery Ballroom – Tramp is one of my favorite albums of the year and I was lucky enough to see Van Etten play a good majority of it live, on her birthday no less! She was in a great mood, chatting it up with various members of the crowd and her band in between songs. During the encore, she even performed one number while wearing a giant balloon animal that was made for her birthday. Aaron Dessner played with her during the night and it was great to hear him perform in such a small venue.

6. Crossing Brooklyn Ferry Festival at Brooklyn Academy of Music
7. Sleigh Bells, Grizzly Bear, Antlers and Cults at Terminal 5
8. Kasabian at Terminal 5
9. Scissor Sisters at Terminal 5
10. Zola Jesus at Webster Hall
