Reckon it might be Let’s Eat Grandma, Everything Everything, Protomartyr, Car Seat Headrest, or TWICE, depending on the metrics
Parquet Courts are probs worth an honourable mention
Hope they hang around for 20 years or so and run out of people to name songs after until they’re stuck with Ian, Keith and Maude.
reckon it’s probably mueran humanos
Think I’ve said this before but you had about 20 pleasant folky bands about this good in 2006.
I like Big Thief
They’re not pleasant is the thing, almost every one of the performances on record or live is pretty tortured.
There weren’t any bands in 2006 with as much lyrical potency or interesting ideas as Big Thief are putting out rn, at least within this subgenre
Mitski comes close but not really a band as such I guess, although she plays with one
Toss up between them and My Chemical Romance
we all like the national, remember
they’re the band that we all like
just feels like, i dunno, imagine Two Gallants inexplicably becoming massive and everyone suddenly calling them the best band in the world. confusing.
I don’t want your “help”
Local Natives for vegans.
Shit sons we’ve got someone with opinions on vegans
Molly Nilsson’s the best band in the world
Las Cruces Jail is a banger tbh tbf
Nowt wrong with Local Natives.
yeah they were a good band, used to really like the self titled album
Aye that’s the only one I was really into and What The Toll Tells of course.
Saw them in Stiff Kitten once. Were very good.
