  2. Bitte Orca by the Dirty Projectors is some of the most interesting music I’ve heard in a long time… def. one of my favorites of the year.

    Great site, btw. :)

  3. What happened to The Antlers? Wasn’t Hospice originally on this list. I think it was you that introduced me to the album. It must be a technical glitch that it’s no longer listed. Please get it fixed!
