My goal wasn't to kick off the new year on such a cynical note, but what the WHAT? Not sure if I feel old, dumb, or out of the loop or old, dumb and completely out of the loop.
Earl Sweatshirt? Foxygen?
I guess I didn't expect Stereogum's 50 Most Anticipated Albums of 2013 to include the new Black Crowes 8 side vinyl live set from N.Y.C., or the new records from Richard Thompson and Todd Rundgren. But I still find it somewhat inconceivable that any one list could swing so painfully off the beaten path.
