Haha, I can understand that qualm with pop music but electronic music and hip-hop are my two favorite genres, so beat oriented stuff always catches my ear.
They typically cover the kind of stuff that Pitchfork tends to cover, with a little bit more variety and lesser known stuff
Cool! I'll give it a better examination when I get a chance.
I stumbled across that Now, Now album on itunes by total accident. I liked it but I couldn't really commit to it.
I opened Grimes, Now, Now and Policia all at the same time and they sounded incredible together, you should try it. I like Policia's sound but I feel like the autotune detracts a lot from the lady's fine voice.
Definitely cross over the bandcamp stuff to the bandcamp thread as well, if you haven't already.
A band I love who just put out a new album that everyone should check out: This Armistice
