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!

Whistler (Mix 4)

Mix #4

Okay this one might be a little strange. It doesn't really put any new music across but... If you're like me in anyway it'll give you an incredibly happy feeling to just listen through. 50's and 60's sounds, some lo-fi tunes, and some A-cappella jams makes me smile ear to ear. Hope it gives you guys the same results!!

1) "Lollipop" by The Chordettes
2) "What Am I Going To Do" by The Dovers
3) "Laughed For A World Filled With Fantasy" by Panda Bear
4) "A Teenager In Love" by Dion & The Belmonts
5) "Beechwood Park" by The Zombies
6) "Knife" (Grizzly Bear Cover) by The Carleton Singing Knights
7) "Stand By Me" by BB King
8) "I Only Have Eyes For You" by Flamingos
9) "Time Of The Season" by The Zombies
10) "Everything's Bigs" by Here We Go Magic
11) "After Hours" by The Velvet Underground

p.s. If you listen to this mix while scrolling through pictures on this site you will have experienced it to it's maximum potential.

Washed Out: Life Of Leisure EP

Washed Out - Life Of Leisure EP [2009]

This is a really nice electronic dance EP. Some people say it sounds like 80's music but I don't see that Idk. Check out "Get Up" the first track and if that doesn't interest you listen to the next one I think it has an MGMT sound that you guys would appreciate. I picture Greg Falk or Dave Kline to be into this haha maybe I'm right?

Mono- You Are There

For fans of; Explosions in the sky.

This japanese band is a darker explosions in the sky and I listened through their 2006 release "You Are There" twice this morning straight through. That's really the only way you should listen to this album. No pauses and full attention. It's pretty beautiful and omar says it reminds him of count dracula and scar from the lion king ... soo uhh enjoy!
