Actually knew most of it so they’re clearly not trying hard enough
Along with Rolling Stone, this is the list with the least number of my (so far) top 80 albums of 2017. Just 2%. Guess I am just not a Quietus type of guy (mind, I also guess they won’t be too bothered by that). Hey ho.
I like how they did lots of Bandcamp tracks for you to listen to as you skim through, even if some of there were No’s as soon as I clicked play. Mario Batkovic sounds kind of interesting, so might investigate him.
Gorilla vs Bear
haven’t heard of most of these tbh. So I guess maybe I should read Gorilla vs Bear?
Haven’t they done a top 200 the last few years? 100 is definitely enough. God-bless The Quietus but their year end lists tend to be insane. Feels like they’ve pulled it back from parody this year.
Could really do with a playlist here. To separate the chaff from the good stuff.
Dont Hype Williams have new band members now?
Sounds like the early stuff though and I think it is probably all just part of the ruse.
I’d say it is D&I but could be wrong. Like the album either way.
Really good and interesting list
Have no idea who any of those bands/acts are.
God, I’ve only heard about 20 albums this year I think.
You should listen to that yaeji ep. Shit is lit yo
The more of these lists that come out the more ridiculous it looks that Kelly Lee Owens and Richard Dawson weren’t on the Mercury shortlist.
Are they battle metal? I only listen to battle metal.
good to see Richard Dawson getting the appreciation he deserves. personally preferred nothing important though to peasant
The opening paragraph is Stereogum OTT guff at its best
Like the dickhead I am, I’ve done my own.
