I'm almost 40 now. Keeping up with new music is a bit different from when I was younger. I find I rely on End-of-Year lists more now than ever before. January is usually a time for me to catch up on the previous year. I like it because there is inevitably great music that I missed. For the record, Low's Double Negative? Album of the Year. More like a Fennesz record than anything. Just listen to Tempest below.
Soccer Mommy. Great Indie Album.
Christine and the Queens. Is this Adult Contemporary?? How apropos.
