Top Overall - Santigold - Master Of My Make Believe
Totally different than ‘Santogold’ it originally put me off. I forced myself to listen to it one more time and I’ve really fallen in love with it. Probably among my top 10 for the last 5 or 10 years. All 4 and 5 star songs. Best Track - “God from the Machine”
Surprisingly Good - Metric - Synthetica
'Fantasies' was not great and I wasn't looking forward to checking this out. But this is more like the old stuff, a little tame but solid. Best Track - “Lost Kitten”
Disappointing - Grizzly Bear - Shields
Just hasn’t clicked. I’ve only got a few listens to it but no 5 star songs and overall not very memorable.

Exactly why I use DuckDuckGo as my search engine, use OSM for mapping, pay for NewsBlur, removed all my google history, and signed out of all Google properties. I only use Gmail and Youtube, and reluctantly at that.
