Best album of the year either:
Animal Collective-Merriweather Post Pavillion
Summer hit that wasn't:
Missing in action award: The Arcade Fire (WTFAT?)
Also forgot to mention Santogold vs Diplo album. That's been rocking my world for some time but I think it's this year.
Animal Collective is so lush. It sweeps over me. The xx is weird. It's all riffs intertwined. Also very mature love songs for a bunch of 19 year olds.
I would have loved to have heard Bang on the radio all summer. unlikely I know.
If anyone knows The Arcade Fire give them a call for me. I can't wait much longer.
PS. Antlers made concept album about death. What's not to like
