The Pains of Being Pure At Heart- "The Pains of Being Pure At Heart"

Animal Collective- "Merriweather Post Pavillion"

okay now I probably listened to The Pains and other albums many times more than mpp. To be honest I really haven't listened to the album the whole way through since probably february around when it was officially released. But that's not the point. i feel like mpp deserves the album of the year because it really is a land-mark album.

It made the billboards list on vinyl sales alone. that was a huge deal idk if anyone remembers that. it was probably the most anticipated album (of the genre) that we've all ever imagined. I remember when ONE song from the album leaked there were frantic texts and people were going insane. it was unbelievable. idk why i turned away from this album so much. Probably because i grew sooo attached to the boots like everyone else and just got sick of the songs when it actually came out. either way. this album puts this band was really historical.

Greetings from Hawaii (Mix #7)

Greetings From Hawaii
Mix 7

okay picture this. It's the first day of your island getaway. The weather is beyond beautiful. You get to this island and it's endless fun. Pool games, beach volleyball, parasailing, rafting , you name it and you can do it.

Later on you take a rest on the sunny beach with your cool shades and ice cold Pina colada. You don't think about much you just enjoy the birds circling in the distance and the blue ocean and sky complimenting each other perfectly. You watch the sails slowly drift from right to left and left to right and you are perfectly at peace.

The sun begins to set and a sun-bridge is made on the water of oranges and reds you've never even thought could exist. The sky swooshes through various pinks and yellows and reds and oranges until it has peacefully become night. The tiki torches get the light they've been waiting for and the bonfire gains life. Relax. You're on vacation!

1. "Christmas Song" by The Aislers Set
2. "Look out Sos!" by The Ruby Suns
3. "Dune Buggy" by Surfaris
4. "The Sun Was High (So Was I)" by Best Coast
5. "Atlantic City" by Real Estate
6. "Ohne Titel" by Panda Bear
7. "Natty Dub" by King Tubby
8. "Let's Go Away For A While" by The Beach Boys
9. "Saturday Morning" by Real Estate
10. "Looks Just Like The Sun" by Broken Social Scene
11. "Pacific Theme" by Broken Social Scene
12. "Hawaiian Slack Key" by Hawaii

Red House Painters- Roller Coaster

Yo. disclaimer: I am addicted to this band. Seriously the past two days I haven't been able to put on anything else. BUT today a serious wave of depression hit me. They're so good. But so sad . Honestly out of all the bright eyes/ kind of like spitting sad songs this is 1000x worse. Music has never effected me like this.

I really don't know who would like this band. But I listened through the album and I'm in love. It's very sad music. Very slow music. Verrrrryy 90's which is awesome. Give em a try.

Neutral Milk Hotel Essentials

I'm bored. Let's do this!

The masterpiece "In The Aeroplane Over The Sea" released in 98. It'll make you laugh, it'll make you love, it'll make you cry! I think I've decided this to be my
favorite album ever made passing person pitch. (Good Girl is kind of annoying, right?)

The criminally underrated "On Avery Island" of 96. It come so fucking close to In The Aero. It's got electronic noise breakdowns and interludes which are fucking incredible. The best distorted head-banging rock and the beautiful "A Baby For Pree- Where You'll Find Me Now" suite that has and will continue to make me cry. Fucking great album. Gardenhead is the shit.

The first release in 94 is the "Everything Is" ep. The title track is so fucking good and snow song part 1 is amazing. This is a bit more inaccessible but give it a try. Everything is is a great song.

Live at Bottom of The Hill San Francisco 98'

This live show. is so fucking good. Best set and really gives you the fullest effect on how fun this band is. I'm telling you.. listen to it over and over. Ferris Wheel On Fire is such a good unreleased track and this life performance of it gives it full justice.

Live at Jittery Joes

A Jeff Mangum solo acoustic performance at a place called jittery joes. If you watch vids of this show you can see everyone sitting down and it seems to be a really intimate show setting. After the famous hiatus I guess it had to be just friends for him to perform this in 2001. wowo

so bored

Album of the decade discussion

As some of you may know, the reigning opinions of Pitchfork Media will begin to announce a list of the 200 best albums of the decade [2000-2009] tonight at 1:00.

In my personal opinion, the best album to be released in this decade is "Person Pitch" [2007] by Panda Bear. Some other favorites are easily;

"Since I Left You" by The Avalanches[2000]
"Owls" by Owls [2001]
"LIFTED" by Bright Eyes [2002]
"Give Up" by The Postal Service [2003]
"Oaklandazulasylum" by WHY? [2003]
"Funeral" by Arcade Fire [2004]
"Sung Tongs" by Animal Collective [2004]
"Feels" by Animal Collective [2005]
"In Case We Die" by Architecture In Helsinki [2005]
"Elephant Eyelash" by WHY? [2005]
"Ys" by Joanna Newsom [2006]
"Cryptograms" by Deerhunter [2007]
"Strawberry Jam" by Animal Collective [2007]
"Love Is Simple" by Akron/Family [2007]

I will be pretty upset if all of those don't make it in the top 200. I know for sure Owls won't be there. But if you've listened, you know it deserves the recognition!

My Predictions for the top five:

5)"The Glow, Pt. 2" by The Microphones
4)"Funeral" by Arcade Fire
3)"Yankee Hotel Foxtrot" by Wilco
2)"Turn On the Bright Lights" by Interpol
1) "Kid A" by Radiohead

After p4k's list of songs for this decade. I'm sure we will be disappointed!
