    I think he's fine, I just don't get why his name pops up so much as it does.

    I guess I'm guilty of hyping some stuff too though... this hasn't been mentioned for hours:

    You guys are dumb. I was merely saying I was surprised that James Blake didn't make Stereogum's list, because he's been so hyped this year. That's all. It wasn't a reflection of my own taste. Equally surprised Panda Bear isn't on there either.

    I wasn't blaming you for the James Blake hype, Chris. I'm just saying, I don't get it.

    James Blake fans and Arcadelos have much in common.

    I haven't listened to 5% of the albums in here but I've downloaded quite a few for my rainy day music fund. Looking forward to it! Thanks for the suggestions

    I included it in my list. I think it's great, especially after seeing it re-interpreted live. i look forward to seeing it again at ATP as well.

    Is Stereogum known for favoring fey, lightweight pop? Or is that just a reflection of where the world is at right now?


    I'm asking, I don't know.

    I don't visit Stereogum anywhere near as much as I used to, so it's hard to say. I don't agree with the list much, but I do like the fact that it's not solely comprised of hyped band a, b, and c etc.

    Prurient being that high is definitely the biggest surprise on that list. The album doesn't come out until July, but I can't imagine a noise record gaining much widespread traction.

    I don't see the correlation between that first question and the above list.

    I guess I'm just overreacting to the exclusion of Battles and inclusion of Fleet Foxes.

    The Battle record is definitely not universally well-received...and I think most people are comparing it against Mirrored instead of against all the other records of the year.

    That said, I doubt it actually cracks my top 20 by the end of the year, but would certainly be in the list as a whole.

    i had no idea you liked Battles so much Tom.

    And, Tom, the Battles album would be in my top 40 of the year or something. I like it, but not nearly as much as Mirrored and it hasn't snagged me yet. And I thought they lost most of what I loved about them live when Tyondai left.
