5. The Pains of Being Pure at Heart - The Pains of Being Pure at Heart

February 3, 2009
Critic Score

20 reviews

The Pains of Being Pure at Heart can easily be at the forefront of this scene because, simply put, they have the best hooks.

2. Grizzly Bear - Veckatimest

May 26, 2009
Critic Score
86
31 reviews

The first two songs are the most accessible work Grizzly Bear’s ever done, and those tracks alone are enough to make Veckatimest worth several listens. Most of this album, though, is going to take way more effort to get into.

1. Animal Collective - Merriweather Post Pavilion

January 20, 2009
Critic Score
92
30 reviews

MPP is a dense studio record with a prominent synthetic pulse, but AC does not jettison warmth by leaning ‘lectronic, instead defying the sterility associated with its own techniques.
