AVWG is my ideal mate.

miss_vogue said...

Animal Collective, Coeur de Pirate, Boys Noize, Biggie, Devendra, Dr. Dog, and The Grateful Dead. haha and most of yours too!

Annie said...

Chutes Too Narrow definitely makes my favorites. It's undoubtedly the best Shins album. Along with, hm... Is This It (The Strokes), The Crane Wife and The Hazards of Love (both The Decemberists), and The Stranger (Billy Joel).

Also, do you know the band Born Ruffians? They're similar vibe-wise to MGMT and Vampire Weekend, very fun and dancey and awesome. Their album "Red, Yellow & Blue" is so great. Thought you might like to check them out!

Lexie said...

what a fun collection of music! i've been listening to a lot of arcade fire and lcd soundsystem!

Fashion Monstre said...

love all these bands and for some reason the album covers make me want to buy their music even MORE...dont get me started with radiohead they are my favorite band of all friggen time

Emmy said...

ALLLLLL of these are wonderful and amongst my favourites. The Shins? Effing brilliant. I will never get tired of them...ever. Vampire Weekend just has that innate ability to make me feel better, there's just something so light and whimsical about their sound.

A few of my favourites are Rush of Blood to the Head, Viva la Vida (both Coldplay), Can You Feel the Illinoise (Sufjan Stevens), We Were Here (Joshua Radin), and For Emma, Forever Ago (Bon Iver)

Radiohead! That's wonderful that you like Radiohead. I've seen them twice. My absolute favorite band ever!

Eve said...

I love the Shins!! I'm really into the Bird & the Bee, Regina Spektor and Beck right now. Hmm. Rather an odd mix...

Rose said...

wooww. i don't think i've ever met anyone with such exactly similar music tastes to my own. my list would be the exact exact same as yours, but plus the new pornographers. LOVE THEM. if you don't know them, i definitely suggest you take a listen. other favourites, however, include ben folds and regina spektor.

Lillian said...

Just seeing radiohead makes me want to go lay on my bed and listen listen listen with some big headphones and a bowl of popcorn.

CMA said...

Mayce said...

you NEED to check out Tonight: Franz ferdinand. you'll love it. Let me know.

Anonymous said...

for alt rock i am loving the new paramore album and meg and dia's latest one.
for indie rock i like eisley (brightly wound specifically, so so pretty), vampire weekend, tegan and sara, and this new band i discovered through childhood flames' camille, first aid kit. they are fabulous.
i think we have very similar taste in music. indie rock wise, at least.

Beverly said...

MGMT IS MY FAVORITE BAND! AND oh man andrew is soooooo sexy hahaha and paolo nutini, he's just amazing! i've heard of those other bands but never listened to them. now i have something new to listen to :)

Marie R said...

hmm, only heard of Radiohead, The Shins, and Vampire Weekend. But I just gave the other three a listen and I love Paolo Nutini and Spoon (MGMT, not my style).

Summer said...

Summer
A Writers Den
Brown Mestizo

girl by the whirlpool said...

loooovve Vampire Weekend. check out Regina Spektor's new album "Far". It's my current favorite. Also very into M. Ward and Andrew Bird. Spoon is cool. I saw them live and they played Brown Sugar by the Stones. Brilliant.

hannahlizabeth said...

excellent collage - i might just have to steal this idea :)

lately i've been listening to lots of ryan adams and cat power, mainly cos it's good study music.

I love the In Rainbows album cover though.

JFK Jean said...

everytime i listen In Rainbows it just transports me to who knows where but just a better place. love radiohead, the shins and paolo nutini. seems like we have similar taste in music so i'm going to have to check out the others. awesome post.

YOU ARE WHAT YOU WEAR @ clothesarecute.blogspot.com

Jem said...

oh i love vampire weekend, and i agree paolo nutini is beautiful!

rachel d. said...

this is so weird. these albums are all on constant shuffle. i refuse to listen to anything else. just add the killers (sam's town and day and age), keane (first album), muse (black holes and revelations), and the stone roses.

Kate said...

mgmt, vampire weekens, the shins♥

rachel d. said...

oh, and regina spektor, veckatimest, the ting tings (saw them live w/a bacstage pass someone gave to me), and the beatles (duh)

Toni said...

You should listen to Massive Attack. Wonderful sounds. If you like the ones up here (which i love by the way), really consider them.

Thu said...

have you heard Paolo talk? LOVE.

any of Coldplay's albums for sure.
Bloc Party's Intimacy
Regina Spektor's Far
and City & Colour

Rosalie said...

passion pit is absolutely the best thing to ever happen to me. their new album manners is amAZing

Anita N. said...

omg, I second Rosalie, Passion Pit is amazing! give them a listen :)

For me, Animal Collective is always on constant rotation, from Sung Tongs to Merriweather Post Pavilion...they're an incredible band. Others are Jeff Buckley (please listen to other songs BESIDES "Hallelujah" on the album 'Grace'. He was a sweet vocalist), Beach House, BAT FOR LASHES (amazing!!!!), and Tilly and the Wall (their percussionist for most songs is a tap dancer!)

Claudia said...

mmmm i couldnt agree with you more!
passion pit chunk of change is a good cover and music, beirut, iron and wine....so many more though

Hilary P said...

i agree, Andrew VanWyngarden is beautiful!

My favorite albums right now= arcade fire: neon bible and Fever Ray's new album

Ales said...

like, paolo nutine, mgmt and patrick wolf. you should really try Patrick Wolf and Fever Ray + The Knife

Anonymous said...

highly over rated.
but everyone has thier taste.
all these albums are OLD.stay up to date.

Isabel said...

I saw Paolo Nutini live at the same Festival I saw the Pixies at. He was absolutely insane!

kpeach said...

love that Vampire Weekend-iTunes makes you miss out a bit on awesome covers xx

sexyinthecity said...

I'm totally in love with arcade fire!!!

zoey said...

Love this post, inspiring. I love Poalo Nutini and the mgmt cover - lush. Oh and the vampire weekend cover is my favourite, very skins house party. x

The Voguette said...

I'm lovin dan black, discovery, crystal castles, the xx, atlas sound... etccccc.

ps. your dotted tights are too cute!

I think it's hilarious that people are criticizing your music taste. Like, how lame is that? Honestly? If they don't like your music... they could just not say anything. My guess is, they listen to shitty mainstream music and have nothing positive to contribute here. Whatever, there's no accounting for taste I suppose! You go, girl.

Anna said...

One of my good friends's father is a producer and he let my friend meet Vampire Weekend! So jealous, no?!

Meaghan said...

i've seen vampire weekend and paolo live, and I can say Ezra wins in my books.
currently into attack in black, black keys, animal collective, the kills/dead weather, and girl talk. Iron and Wine remains my all time favourite.

Diane said...

I second Annie's suggestion of Born Ruffians. Completely underrated band that you should definitely check out.

Have you heard Vampire Weekend's new sing, "Horchata"? It's pretty friggin' good.

Favorites right now: Nobunny, Sissy Wish, No Age...and about a thousand more that I'm blanking on.

t.g.s said...

omg mgmt are awesome
kids has got to have the catchiest intro ever
and i love vampire weekend
always have, they never fail
i'm really wanting say anthing's new album
can't wait any longer for it

Clarity said...

I've got the vampire weekend one, familiar with Paolo, being a Londoner and not the others... who are they?

:)

My favourite musicians are of the 60's/70's writer/singers era

ChloƩ said...

MGMT has been my favourite for about 2 years, really love them! And I met Andrew about moth ago, so lucky lucky girl! He's really adorable.

MGMT? I love them! I saw them at live at Bestival on the Isle of Wight. It was AMAZING

It would be mine

robin said...

PAOLOOOOO <3

his newest album is so good.
his voice is just beautiful in it.

Dylana said...

I love Paolo Nutini! He is amaazzing. His voice is like a lullaby. Where did you find that pic of the girl with the leopard coat. They are both so cute! Let me know!

Coco said...

Andrew VanWyngarden is the most beautiful man. He's the background on my computer.

MeggW said...

MGMT are bloody legendary....
As for Paolo, he is a sex god to the actual max. His new album Sunny Side up is incredible, his voice is like liquid gold, and he is HOT. the only downside, however, is that he is a druggie. hhhm

Ash said...

Paulo Nutini... swoon swoon...

Erin said...

I am amazed by your style and music tastes, both are impeccable. I am finding my self astounded by you more and more. Keep up the wonderful work! (and yes, Andrew VanWyngarden is absolutely a very beautiful creature )

Jenny said...

all of yours + beirut, florence+themachine, band of horses, elephant parade, kings of convenience and also belle & sebastian :)
