DDD Indie Fag Echo Chamber? Let's do it

here's mine for 2011 recollections echoing myself

"The worst thing Bon Iver did was to come out of that fucking cabin"

"Contrary to popular belief, the Weeknd released only one good album"

"There's as much melancholy in Drake's Marvin's Room as 90's era Radiohead"

"St. Vincent's Cruel is the most fun I've had with a vowel in a pop song"

"Banana Ripple is the Junior Boys' Brothersport"

"Niggas in Paris? Niggas in Harlem"

good idea wanta. to create your own personal echo chamber, just do a search on your posts and put "indie" in "search these results." my defining echoes of 2011:

Wow, this may just be the first time I've been on the other side of an indie backlash. I think pitchfork got it right, "Bon Iver" is a lot better than "For Emma For Ever Ago" imo.

Black Keys are hella overrated.



and probably the quote that defines what I listened to in 2011 more than anything else:

batman wrote:
Literally every second of "Untitled (How Does it Feel)" is perfect. I truly believe that there is not one note that could be changed without negatively affecting the song. It's anchored by the most repetitive drum beat of all time, but the song is constantly evolving in subtle ways. It will tease you for a second, and then give you what you want for the next few seconds, and you can never predict if D'angelo, ?uestlove, and Raphael Saadiq are about to musically satisfy you or take everything away from you. It's so meticulously crafted, but sounds so natural and organic at the same time. For example, on the bridge there are all these voices weaving in and out of each other ("baby close the door," "we should bump n grind," "wanna tear the walls down with you"), and then everything folds up really tightly for a second, and right as it goes back to the chord progression of the verse, everything opens up and becomes loose. Above all (I've been beating around the bush on this one for a while), listening to this song at a high volume and being absorbed by it feels like cumming. There, I said it! I mean, the song doesn't physically make me ejaculate, but it warms the heart in a very similar way. That's why this song wins. If I had this reaction to other kinds of art, I would have had my library card revoked a long time ago.

I'm really into Chairlift's new album right now. Their live show is worth experiencing, too

What the hell do you guys use for downloads nowadays? Wanted to get my first 2012 album (Grime - Visions) but I can't find a single working link! I guess a last resort is What but I really only want to use that for the rarest of things.
