Memories Made In The Coldest Winter
I'm turning into an Indie Fuck... fuck.
12/28/08 at 01:21 AM by hockeyguitar99
So, recently, I've noticed that my tastes have been moving in the direction of Pitchfork-esque stuff. For example my last.fm this week, which I'll post in the thread later, contained Deerhunter, Broken Social Scene, Los Campesinos!, Grizzly Bear, Explosions In The Sky, Pavement, Arrows, Fleet Foxes, Beck, Times New Viking, The Gaslight Anthem, and Animal Collective. The only two outliers are Fall Out Boy and City and Colour (who would fit into Pitchforks playlist just fine, but they are more centered in this scene). It's not necessarily a concious thing, but it's just what I like. I even added some of my favorite old pop-punk records (ATL, Mayday Parade's debut EP) because I'm in Hawai'i, but I haven't wanted to listen to them. It'll be interesting to see what direction this takes as we move into 2009.

I'm working on an updated list for my top of 08. I hadn't heard the Los Campesinos! or Deerhunter records, both of which will probably fall top 10.

Until Then

An Indie Rock Hanukkah!
12/20/08 at 09:04 AM by hockeyguitar99
Yesterday was my family Hanukkah party, while the actual holiday doesn't start until tomorrow night, my family is leaving for Hawaii, so had our get together yesterday instead. My little cousin, who is 2 years old, is so much fun and it was cool to see my cousin, who had come home from college for winter break. Here's a list of the gifts I got, and now the title will make a lot more sense.

Los Campesinos! - Hold On Now, Youngster
Los Campesinos! - We Are Beautiful, We Are Doomed
Film School - Hideout
Deerhunter - Microcastle/Weird Era Cont.
Deerhunter - Cryptograms
Pavement - Wowee Zowee - Sordid Sentinels Edition
Beck- Odelay: Deluxe Edition
Beck - Sea Change
Times New Viking - Rip It Off
Islands - Arm's Way
