see them live. That will change everything. I have seen them live twice in the past few months and they are simply amazing.

mine:

Phoenix - Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix
Grizzly Bear - Veckatnedkedednendwhatever
fun. - aim and ignite
Animal Collective - Merriweather Post Pavilion
Dark Was the Night compilation (um, seriously, how could you leave it off your list?)

honorable mention: Here We Go Magic's debut album, Dirty Projectors - Bitte Orca
I am sure I didn't offer any new ones but given the great selection I have seen on here I will definitely check out some albums thanks to you guys.

oh also, if you see St. Vincent live, she might lose you as a fan. Worst live performer I have ever paid to see besides Grouper. I am kind of sick of the whole "I am a hot chick, so I will act really demure on stage and wide-eyed" schtick. Call me a feminist, but I would just prefer my female singers like the chick from Beach House, very raw and real, not ditsy and false indie. (the same could go for the stupid girl from Chairlift)

I'll take your advice. Next time they're in my neck of the woods I'll catch their show. Seeing Pearl Jam live definately made me appreciate them (though I still haven't listened to one of their albums).

Good choice. I forgot all about that album. One of the best compilation's I've heard.

I really have no idea how you got that impression from seeing her live, she was adorable and very sweet to the crowd, she just seems very reserved by nature. the only problem I had was the amount of feedback from her set, really muddled the sound, but the vocals where on point (as always).. I could really give less of a **** about how she held herself on stage. Seriously, what a ridiculous thing to judge an act over.

I watched the live performance on Pitchfork and she seemed good.

I just saw St. Vincent live tonight and I thought she was very good, I didn't mind the feedback because I know that's just part of her music. Although she didn't talk much she was still really humble and sweet and funny. I also thought her marionette/doll stage antics were pretty cool.

For me, and I guess its a time thing, but last years albums are always better. Every single year.

no actually, considering it is a live act which you see with your eyeballs and the music sucked as well, it is not very ridiculous. Much the same way that if you watch a play and the actor has a great voice but horrible physical acting, you will think his performance sucks. She failed at live performance, which to me is far more important than once her voice is canned and processed and turned into an album. It was just seeing yet another indie-girl artist do the indie girl schtick. So you like her? Good for you! But don't get mad because I thought she sucked. My opinion only, douche.
