Thanks to Cool Hunting I’ve just stumbled on The Capstan Shafts. I particularly like the song “Dukes of Ugly Sound.”

This year’s Pitchfork 100 introduced me to The Tough Alliance “Silly Crimes” and BARR “The Song is the Single.” I can confidently say that the list will give you hours of enjoyment, which is no small feat. Yeasayer and Justice are still my favorites for the year, but I imagine that’ll change once Hua Hsu schools me with his annual mega-mix.

Incidentally, I appreciate the fact that when I Google “justice,” the first hit is for the electro/house duo and only the third is for “the proper ordering of things and persons,” which is a sad commentary on something, probably me.
