I never loved all of We Were Dead Before the Ship Even Sank but I just listened to most of it in the car and got about as much out of it as ever.

    It is not my intent to be mean but if you're really looking for an overall answer it is that you're not doing a good job of deciding on first listen what is good and what isn't. You're picking music that isn't good for you, that isn't sustainable.

    Those artists - other than Girl Talk and Peter, Bjorn and John - are all generic indie pop. Or, at least, that's what they put out now. Sure, there's a bit more range to the Modest Mouse album but Isaac didn't do anything he hadn't already done better. I'd say that that album by the Shins is really good generic indie pop but other than that I wouldn't expect those artists to have staying power.

    Listen to what you like. Really. You should listen to what you enjoy. But if you listen to simple pop realize that it's very likely to wear out. And if that's something you want to avoid then find bands that do more, that have more depth.
    i absolutely not just listen to the bands i mentioned before, no way
    i was only pointing out something that happens every year with these type of bands that sound "promising" at the beginning of the year and now theyve been forgotten
    but no i really listen to good stuff

    It's that Girl Talk remix of "Let's Call It Off" that really made me go back and appreciate that song and others on it.

    My Crunch-Techno phase is waning though. I will no longer listen to anything that just slightly resembles Daft Punk and Justice.
    Daft Punk and Justice really aren't that similar. Daft Punk are epic and Justice is a trendy one trick pony.

    i cant listen to any of that anymore
    and when i do, its like, i actually liked that?
    and seeing as it wasnt too long a go, its a little strange
    this says more about you than it does the music.

    The Shins album is still one of my favorites of the year, even though I haven't played it in months. I mean, there's a crapload of new music every fuckin' week and we still only get the 24 hours in the day don't we?

    Something's gotta give - it's the transient nature of the cosmos, friends. Ain't a damn thing we can do about it...
    A teenage dream, so hard to beat...

    Congrats...you've successfully proved that you can read. At least name some bands that aren't talked about constantly on the board.

    i'm not sure why you posted this. i meant what i was saying, you probably have decent taste if the novelty of the albums you listed wore off.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, and I'm not, but didn't both Girl Talk and Peter Bjorn and John's albums come out last year? Seems like they've got some sort of lasting power if they're still being discussed.

    Yeah, but I didn't hear them until I had to force myself to discover new music because of Coachella. PB&J was pretty unknown here before then, IIRC.
