How annoying is it to scroll through Elbo.ws and see that everyone and their brother (and his dog) have posted their year end best of lists? Does every half-baked music blogger really think we care that he’s listed Cloud Cult in front of Radiohead or The National over Art Brut or vice-versa? There was so little new music posted or written about this week, but here’s some of what everyone else was saying:
A Space For Music Liberation has a new song off an EP from a band called Gossamer Albatross; kind of an Antony and the Johnsons meets Bright Eyes.
Anyone’s Guess has 2 songs from Petrcovitch otherwise known as SF based folk singer Jessica Peters.
Shattered Satellite has up and coming vulnerable sounding London folk artist Jay Jay Pistolet.
Like I said above I’m a bit peeved by all the year end list making but Lonesome Music gets an exemption with the great/different list they just posted.
