It's all good. I'd never leave my peeps! I didn't see the crew this year, but have to say this was my favorite year musically since I started going. I hope all is well with all and that you guys are enjoying the plethora of great music this year. I made my list then forgot about half of the other albums I liked.
Their set @ Pitchfork is my favorite live set so far. However, headlining Sasquatch seems a little much. I can't recall a headliner more inaccessible to a large crowd than those four when compared to previous headliners. I would love it, but I don't even know if they'll come back after all the tech issues they had in 09.
I could not agree more. This year is pretty damn amazing.
LOVE: Jack White - Blunderbuss Death Grips - The Money Store Niki & the Dove - Instinct Spiritualized - Sweet Heart Sweet Light Lower Dens - Nootropics Japandroids - Celebration Rock Chromatics - Kill for Love Mount Eerie - Clear Moon Hundred Waters - Hundred Waters Lotus Plaza - Spooky Action at a Distance Screaming Females - Ugly Sigur Ros - Valtari Ákos Rózmann - 12 stationer VI (crazy shit but I love it)
