Kevin's Best Of The Decade

Not only has Kevin been nominated as one of the 5 best artists of the decade by Under The Radar, he has also been mandated by Rolling Stone to pick the 25 best albums and songs of the decade. Others musicians, from Kirk Hammett to Colin Meloy, from Jarvis Cocker to people who must have been in a band at some point (though I have my doubts), submitted their lists too, and no-one has actually picked any of Montreal! What kind of panel was that? Jerks.
You may want to take a look at Lars Ulrich's list, though, it's a riot. Or at the very least it could cause one.

Among Kevin's obvious choices : MGMT, Janelle Monae, Erikah Badu and Animal Collective (and a whole lot of songs of Montreal has been covering over the years), among the not-so-obvious (or maybe that's only me) : The Strokes and Manu Chao, and among the who-the-hell-are-these-people (feel free to enlighten me) : Spirit Stereo Frequency (best album of the decade, really? more like best kept secret...), the Knife, Estelle...

Take a look at Kevin's score sheets :

Feel free to discuss his choices here, on facebook or at the Townhall, and share your own best of lists... 'Tis the season, after all...

---~~~---~~~ The Booty Patrol on Twitter ---~~~---~~~

The Booty Patrol entered the world of the 140-character-tops snippets of wisdom today. The point of it is to make it easier to share links and other almost irrelevant pieces of information... Either that or it'll just mean that I didn't have the time for a real post. Whichever way, the tweets will appear on here (look, here they are, sandwiched between the header and the posts in tiny letters because I haven't figured out how to change that yet!), so if you're not a twitter fan, you don't have to worry about it. The more we change, the more we stay the same.


  1. Awesome. I love his diverse taste in music. Very thrilled to see Belle & Sebastian placed so high. Very curious how a Stuart Murdoch/Kevin Barnes collaboration would work.

  2. ahhhh yes! Janelle Monae! Extraordinary artist!

  3. @wondaland : you are preaching to the converted! :-)
    Pretty excited for Metropolis II & III :-)
