Chorizogrande forgot her other list/1 Potato2Potato3Potato4.5potato6Potato gotta find a whore.
Nice to see some love for "American Gong", "Crazy For You" and "Kairos", all albums that are definitely high on my list for the year.

Knight School's "Revenger" was my favorite out-of-left field find this year. Harlem's "Hippies" may have gotten more play than anything else, though.

The new Born Ruffians album was really buoyed by a fantastic live performance in support of the record. Good stuff, and I'm surprised it didn't show up on anyone's list.

Other stuff I dug a lot: Dum Dum Girls: "I Will Be", Disappears: "Lux", Forest City Lovers: "Carriage".
