Yes, we're running behind on our Naught to Be Outdone feature, but yesterday the game changed.
Atlas Sound's Logos leaked. And it is a serious contender for album of the year. hashtaghypehypehype
This delicious unauthorized release of intellectual property without the creator's consent jolted us back to focusing on the current year rather than the decade as a whole. On that note... here's Pretension and Perk's diary of 2009 so far.
1 Jan. Still recovering from the awesomeness of the Animal Collective album leak.
3. Jan. Blogs declare Merriweather Post Pavilion album of the year; resulting backlash is astonishing. Not sure I want to live in a world where people don't like MPP.
19 Jan. Starting to get worried.... maybe MPP isn't so great after all. What if I just like it cos Pitchfork does? Do I have any opinions?
2o Jan. Animal Collective tour dates!!!1
12 May. Animal Collective plays Philadelphia's Electric Factory. Greatest night of ~2500 people's lives, including mine.
1 Sept. Logos leaks.
(I promise, Part 2 of our album list is coming soon)
