best new year

so pitchfork awarded an absurd 53 BNMs this year. no wonder i concurred with them so much--law of averages.

for fun i wanted to count how many of them i actually heard so i made myself this neat little chart

an X indicates that i played it once or at least gave it a hard skim (41 of the 53)
an XX indicates that i played it more than once and would claim to know it well enough to render a useful opinion (27)
an XXX means it made my own a-list (14 counting some fence-straddlers)
an XXXX means it's making my top 10 (7 counting kanye and no age, which i'm still scrutinizing)

and they're in chronological order:
