Next in Queue:
Two Door Cinema
I'll take suggestions from the crowd. Anybody?
Recent albums I wasn't feeling:
Purity Ring (I gave this two listens...wasn't hitting me)
Dirty Projectors (I might could give this one more listen)
Kimbra (got recommended by a female friend who usually gives me good muzak recommendations -- put me onto Passion Pit back in the day, and god bless her for that* -- but I just wasn't feeling it).
Grizzly Bear: it's so slow.
2012 "just okay" albums:
Killer Mike [might could listen again]
