Art Brut @ MHOW, June 2011 (more by Amanda Hatfield)
Anyone who has listened to Art Brut knows that frontman Eddie Argos isn't just a musician, he's also a fan. A fan of comics, movies, television, milkshakes...and music. Eddie and the rest of the band laid low for most of 2012, after a busy 2011 with their most recent album, 'Brilliant! Tragic!' and subsequent touring. But we wanted to know what Eddie was listening to and his list is definitely NOT full of the usual suspects. Says Eddie:
I've been trying to think if I liked 10 albums this year. I think I did. Which is rare for me. However I can't be bothered to fact check and I have a shocking memory so some of my choices may be from the end of last year. So in no paticular order and written in real time with no forethought here is my hopefully top ten albums of the year...

Allo Darlin' at NYC Popfest 2012
Save the dates, May 30 -- June 2, 2013. That's the weekend for the seventh annual NYC Popfest which will happen across multiple venues in NYC. No other details have been announced but expect a mix of old and new, American and foriegn, and a few "la la las" and "bah bah bahs." Personally, I'd love for them to get This Many Boyfriends (check out a video below) and The Monochrome Set. (Go Kart Mozart too, though that seems like a real longshot.) What about you?
The 2012 Popfest happened May 17 - 20, concluding with a big, all-day show at Littlefield with Allo Darlin', The Ladybug Transistor, The Wave Pictures and more. In this post is a set of pictures from that Sunday show we never posted. There's more below, along with the This Many Boyfriends video, an old Monochrome Set clip and UK dates for The Wave Pictures.
