2. Radiohead – Videotape

1. Bloc Party – Signs

(Shit WB, I mean, CW, way to pick this one up! After viewing this program, I claimed that this was probably an awful program. Hot girl, though.)

Agree of disagree?

There were a ton of other tunes I should've given a shot. I know so many bands put out good records with great tracks on them: Hot Chip, She & Him, Hercules & Love Affair, Portishead, TV On The Radio, Bon Iver, Foals, and so many more. It was hard to get to all of them. It was equally hard to pull my head out of the 80's alternative scene, which I've found myself comfortable exploring for the past year and a half. Oh well.

Albums coming later. Peace.
