I can't get over how good Kaputt by Destroyer is.
What are your 2011 faves?
that's a really awesoomeee one.
love The Pains of Being Pure at Heart; TV on the Radio too!
I think a lot of has to do with the fact that they had a pretty drastic change in styles along the way. They used to have a pretty big following in hardcore, but around the time they signed to Matador/released The Chemistry of Common life, they started losing some of the hardcore crowd and gaining some indie fans. Of course they still dip into both circles, but they're not really universally praised by any one scene anymore.
I just got into this album last weekend. Really good. Pennsacola may be my favourite track of the whole year so far.
