The Latvian Radio Choir?  Really?  That group sold out  years ago.  Anyone who know anything about anything switched over to the Estonian Radio Choir instead.

NPR, I thought better of you!

fireclown: They lost me at the picture of a hand holding a vinyl LP.

Vinyl?  Really?  Why do the hipsters like vinyl?



I tried getting back into the local scene here in Los Angeles last year.  I went to a show at the Satellite and saw a band I really enjoyed.  I went to their merch table to buy their cd but only saw vinyl.  I asked if they had a CD as I didn't have a record player, and the guy looked at me incredulously and said, "You don't have a vinyl player?"
The next week I went back, but this time the band was only selling their music on cassette.  I stopped going back because I don't own an eight track player or reel-to-reel either.

bdub77: InmanRoshi: tricycleracer: fireclown: CASSETTE?  The worst format ever?

It's a big thing in the DIY music scene to reuse old tapes for your recordings.  The more obscure or ironic the artist on the original, the more street cred you get.

Can we just get one asteroid to hit the planet so we can collectively start civilization over?   Just one.   Is that too much to ask?

You asshat. Then people will only talk about how awesome it was back BEFORE the asteroid came. You would just usher in the newest and most asshatted asshats.

mithras_angel: gweilo8888: Lost me at Yeezus. (And I like hip hop / rap, as well as a lot of Kanye's past work.)

Admittedly I haven't heard the whole of Yeezus, but what I did hear was like cats in heat, without the tunefulness and rhythm.

Yeezus, for some reason, makes me think that Kanye's next work will be rap covers of Wisconson polka music, and be titled, "Yumping Yimminy!"

/Yes, I know.
//I have issues.



I'm having a hard time putting "fark you like a Nubian, when those other Nubians let you down" into a 3/4 polka tempo.

Snapper Carr: sigdiamond2000: Is it just me, or does this list of music make you feel out of touch, inadequate, and angry, and like you must respond to it negatively in order to quell your feelings of worthlessness? Anybody else feeling that?

Of all of the Best of 2013 lists I've seen, this is my favorite - it has a good balance of genres. As for the more obscure stuff they're touting, they're tone is more "Hey, you might enjoy this one, check it out." as opposed to say, Pitchfork's "What? You haven't heard this? Begone, slack jawed neanderthal! You are not worthy of the words of this page" vibe.

Huh. An NPR "best albums" list without Neko Case on it. That's one for the record books.

The dirty, shameful record books, but still...

It makes me want to listen to some of these albums. Which might then, of course, make me feel out of touch and angry.
