I have. It was called the crowd for LCD last year.
I cannot dispute that. I was one of the 8 people watching Girls set (which I enjoyed by the way) whilst LCD was kicking ass.
I really wanted to see Girls, so I saw about a song and a half before I realized that they were really flat and boring, which was a huge disappointment, and then I went and saw LCD Soundsystem. This incredibly boring narrative brought to you by how much I wanted to love Girls and how bummed I am that they were lame.
Also, I need to throw in a couple late additions to my list.
Matt & Kim - Sidewalks. Went out on a limb and bought this album without ever hearing them and I absolutely love it. I've since dug into their back-catalog and consider myself an all around fan now. Great band!
Diamond Rings - Special Affections. Saw his song "All Yr Songs" on The Needle Drop's top 50 songs of 2010 so I decided to check it out. Quite a flamboyant character and his music is really really good. Picked up the album this week and have had in in heavy rotation since.
That's exactly why I can only spend about 5 minutes on the Coachella boards before wanting to pull my teeth out. WAAAY too many pages. WAAAY too many posters. WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY too many comments. It's like a rapid-fire forum on meth over there.
I don't know if you got a chance to see them on their tour with the xx last spring but it was one of the absolute worst shows I've ever seen. It was poorly done karaoke with pictures of beaches behind them. I had to apologize to all of my friends who I had said would enjoy their set.

I am really enjoying the love that Titus is getting on here. Maybe not the most perfect album of the year, but definitely my favorite. Also, they are probably the best live punk band I've ever seen. Really nice guys too. They deserve all the acclaim.
