Art Brut - Bang Bang Rock and Roll - funny, catchy pop rock
The Boy Least Likely To - The Best Party Ever - quirky pop

I agree with most of your choices, but I really don't like either of these (though I do enjoy the first track on The Best Party Ever). Art Brut's vocals just grate on my nerves, though I suppose a few more listens might help me get used to them.

What do you think of "Feels"?

I liked some of Feels ("Did you see the words," "grass"). "the bees" is the worst song ever.

I wouldn't go as far as "worst song ever", but it's good to see someone who kind of agrees. I adore anything Animal Collective does with a decent share of energy, but their slow, atmospheric stuff tends to put me to sleep.

All,

I'm surprised none of you are fans of The Wrens or the Old '97s. Maybe Pitchfork hasn't written about them or something.

The Wrens are good (I love The Meadowlands). Not too familiar with the Old '97s.

the wrens are good, just a bit older and I've only heard their most recent album, because their earlier stuff is hard as hell to find.

the meadowlands is awesome. I'm iffy on the old 97's, they just seem like they're benign and don't do much for me.

Here are some of my favorite albums of 2005:

Art Brut - Bang Bang Rock and Roll - funny, catchy pop rock

Sleater-Kinney - The Woods - Grrl Rock

[/ QUOTE ]
Art Brut is effing horrible pretentious crap. wtf man.

Sleater-Kinney is pretty cool, although they could improve by changing up their tone a bit. It's like listening to Pennywise.
