    I dont' get the Replacements to Yuck. I'd say more if you like Dinosaur Jr - you might like Yuck.

    And Two Door Cinema Club - to WU LYF - I don't see that at all.

    Yuck is most compared to Dinosaur, Jr., I know, but I saw DJ live a bunch of years ago and was underwhelmed. I went with Replacements because I like them both and the Replacements have that edgy, low-fi-ish but melodic sound.

    I went with TDCC not for the vocals, but for the stylish, non-distorted lead guitar lines.

    If you thought this year's EDM lineup sucked, you'll probably like DJ Shadow and Amon Tobin
    If you first thought Deadmau5's name was cool due to its spelling then you'll love Sweedish House Mafia
    If you find yourself consistently wondering why more pop artists don't remix Aphex Twin then you'll like Girl Talk
