  3. Japandroids
  4. Joy Formidable
  5. Jeff Tweedy

Honorable mentions to Jesu, J. Mascis, and The Jimmy Chamberlin Complex, each of which I love one album by (so far).

Jimmy Eat World is an easy #1. Static Prevails through Futures is an amazing run, and Clarity is one of the greatest albums ever. Very surprised they’re not getting votes so far.

Surprised at the lack of votes for Jeff Rosenstock too. Great anthemic indie / punk rock.

Great alt-rock / shoegaze hybrid.

Jeff Tweedy’s solo album is fantastic (as is the accompanying book).
