!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!I VOTED IN THE 2008 ILX ALBUMS & TRAX POLL AND I LIKED IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (poll now CLOSED)

How it works:

You can vote for up 20 albums AND 20 tracks. That's 40 total. They are not transferable, so you cannot vote for 1 album and 39 tracks.

You may vote in one of two ways: ordered and non-ordered. You can order your list, and I will give 20 points to your #1 ranked item and 1 point to your #20th ranked item. Be sure when sending me your ballot that your top-ranked item is at the top of the list. If you can't be bothered, you can submit an unranked list and each item will receive 10.5 points.

http://photofabrique.com/images/alerts/stop.gifhttp://photofabrique.com/images/alerts/stop.gifhttp://photofabrique.com/images/alerts/stop.gifDO NOT NUMBER YOUR BALLOTS!!! Just tell me that they are ordered (Number one pick on top) or not orderedhttp://photofabrique.com/images/alerts/stop.gifhttp://photofabrique.com/images/alerts/stop.gifhttp://photofabrique.com/images/alerts/stop.gif

Blurbs, anecdotes, etc are welcomed. I will not be emailing people after I tally the votes to solicit blurbs, so if you have something please send it with your ballot. <-----------------this is different than before so please keep it in mind.

http://www.nomaas.org/images/drudge_siren.gifhttp://www.nomaas.org/images/drudge_siren.gifhttp://www.nomaas.org/images/drudge_siren.gifDO NOT FREEFORM TYPE YOUR VOTES; COPY AND PASTE THEM FROM THE NOMINATION LIST INTO YOUR EMAILhttp://www.nomaas.org/images/drudge_siren.gif

I'm not trying to threaten people but I cannot guarantee that your votes will be counted if you don't do the above, because the formatting gets screwy and the find duplicates function ceases to be functional. Since not numbering your ballots and copying and pasting are both less work for y'all so I don't get why people still number their ballots and type them in manually all the time. I'll email you if I get an improperly formatted ballot to ask you to resubmit but still, please, just do it correctly the first time.

Due date: Thursday, January 22nd, 2009, 11:59pm.

Send your ballots to seattleDOTmaryATgmailDOTcom

List of nominations is here -
Trax: http://ilx2007poll.googlepages.com/2008poll-trax
Albums: http://ilx2007poll.googlepages.com/2008poll-albums
(I cleaned it up quite a bit, let me know if there are any errors left)

now get voting! This thread can also be useful for repping and lobbying those with extra votes available, etc. I hope to start the trax results the last week of January and the album results the first week of Feb.

oh christ, the due date is 2009, not 2008, i'll just assume that most of you would pick that up.

Hey, Geir (assuming you read this thread), I'll vote Coldplay on my ballot if you include Kathleen Edwards on yours.

Mordy, Thursday, 15 January 2009 04:28 (ten years ago) link

In general, if anyone has a fave band they need a vote for - and I'm already considering them on a shortlist - I'll bump them onto my list for a Kathleen Edwards vote.

Mordy, Thursday, 15 January 2009 04:30 (ten years ago) link

No Air is on dere twice, by the by.

Maciej (maciej recognizing trill), Thursday, 15 January 2009 04:36 (ten years ago) link

Also, Panic! At the Disco is listed by their full name on the tracks list, and by P!ATD on the albums list.

Mordy, Thursday, 15 January 2009 04:43 (ten years ago) link

Alright. My ballot is pretty much ready to go. I'll hold onto it a few days, tho, just in case someone wants to do a Kathleen Edwards trade with me.

Mordy, Thursday, 15 January 2009 04:44 (ten years ago) link

I thought we agreed that Paper Planes was a 2007 release, though it become a minor phenomenon last year.

Cunga, Thursday, 15 January 2009 05:02 (ten years ago) link

ok, i need to rep for a few tracks here...
check out "rise rice": www.krecs.com/mahjongg/kontpab
and along completely different lines, here's "crush":

Someone Still Loves You Evan and Jaron (Tape Store), Thursday, 15 January 2009 05:22 (ten years ago) link

Man, I did not have my singles ears on at all last year. I easily found more than 20 albums to rep for (Free Gold! In The Future! You And Me Cherry Red!) but outside of a handful of tracks (Milli, Blind, etc.), I just didn't get enough exposure to have strong opinions on anything… And because I was late whipping up a best-of-08 mixtape, I didn't nom anything as singles (and forgot about that Crystal Antlers EP that I meant to nom for albums, but held back because I thought that maybe EPs didn't count for some reason).

So, assume I'm ignorant but totally willing to listen and link me to some singles so I can hear 'em, because otherwise my ballot's gonna be limp like lettuce.

THESE ARE MY FEELINGS! FEEL MY FEELINGS! (I eat cannibals), Thursday, 15 January 2009 05:51 (ten years ago) link

Here's a good single:

Mordy, Thursday, 15 January 2009 05:52 (ten years ago) link

Man, I did not have my singles ears on at all last year. I easily found more than 20 albums to rep for

I actually have a theory about this. See, this year, I had plenty of singles worth listing and very few albums. And last year I had the same. But the year before I had tons of albums and not enough singles. I don't think it's that the year changes, or even that necessarily my listening habits change. I think it's more like one of those animated jpegs where you can see the dancer moving clockwise, or counterclockwise, but you can't see the dancer move both ways simultaneously. You can either remember albums, or remember singles primarily, but you can't primarily remember both. (Also, I suspect that the years that I can list mostly albums are years that I'm less picky about album filler, and years that I mostly remember singles are years where I want my few albums to be 100% perfect.)

Flying Lotus - Los Angeles is listed twice in Albums (no big deal, just two consecutive, identical listings)

That Cole Medina track is actually called Cole Loves Your Insides Out, and I'm voting for it.

I thought the rules said that there wouldn't be separate votes for remixes, but, for example, Blind and Paper Planes are listed alongside their remixes. I thought votes for all different mixes were meant to just go for the song. (I want to vote for the Club Mix, anyway!)

fair enough

Also, if you replace Juan Maclean with Kathleen Edwards, I'll vote for Lust Lust Lust. (Cause I was debating voting for it anyway.)

Matt, what's that Raveonettes album you're voting for? Isn't it called Lust Lust Lust?

i wanted to vote for lust lust lust, but itunes said it was 2007!

the one i voted for is an itunes only EP that came out about a month ago...they also did another one called "wishing you a rave christmas" that is great as well....

but basically beauty dies is great, def in the vein of lust lust lust if a little more cocteau twins-ish

btw here's nomo live, they didn't seem to get much love on ILM and i was suprised, awesome afrobeat type stuff....they are a little weirder/more krautrock on the album, live is much more of a party vibe like this:

my attitude towards animal collective isn't iconoclastic, it's just total contempt for them

lex pretend, Thursday, 22 January 2009 22:47 (ten years ago) link

I liked their old stuff a lot, not heard their new album, but I dont see why anyone would hate them so much. Esp when Kings Of Leon and Coldplay are around.

Pfunkboy Formerly Known As... (Herman G. Neuname), Thursday, 22 January 2009 22:51 (ten years ago) link

i'm not exactly fond of them either, but shit like animal collective really does make me realise that they're fundamentally tolerable and not worth hating on

lex pretend, Thursday, 22 January 2009 22:56 (ten years ago) link

i like some animal collective stuff, but i can definitely understand someone feeling outsized antipathy for them the same way i do for the flaming lips.

reason to hate kings of leon more than AC: i hear the former somewhere, somehow pretty much every day. don't think i've heard an AC song in several years.

I imagine if people haven't voted it's not because they missed this thread the 1000000000000 times it was on the front page, it's because they don't plan on voting or they have been putting it off. if you fall into the latter category then for shame!!! submit now!!

BALLS. Not only did I miss the noms, but I wasn't online at all on thursday, and barely any yesterday, so I completely missed this. I somehow doubt that a ballot quite this late would be accepted. BALLS BALLS and thrice BALLS.

noms started in December, so that must have been a long vacation

miss precious perfect (musically), Saturday, 24 January 2009 20:28 (ten years ago) link

Hmph. Well, that's quite clearly sarcastic (especially seeing as I have already posted to this thread), but I will clarify: I was offline throughout most of the nomination period due to the utter shiteness of Virgin, and thus missed that round of voting entirely. I have been compiling my list, and was intending to get it in on Wednesday or Thursday, but due to unforseen circumstances I couldn't get online on those days either, so have completely fucked it up.

The only thing that I really care about is that people add 20 extra points to El Guincho and 19 extra to the Chap.

emil.y, Sunday, 25 January 2009 01:53 (ten years ago) link

I've made a "controversial decision".

I wish someone had pointed out that Merriweather Post Pavilion was a 2009 album earlier. It really has no place in the poll so I am taking it out. For those of you who voted for it, I will sent you an email and if you respond by tonight you can swap something else in for it. Otherwise, I am going to finish this today so I can start tomorrow.

miss precious perfect (musically), Sunday, 1 February 2009 19:56 (ten years ago) link

Lex, speaking as a fellow Animal Collective/Panda Bear hater, I gotta say; You should give Merriweather another chance. Cause it's either great, or I somehow became brainwashed enough to like it.

Mordy, Sunday, 1 February 2009 21:08 (ten years ago) link

Yeah, I'm on board with stripping it from the 2008 poll. I'm also on board with loving it, despite hating all the other Animal Collective records.

Johnny Fever, Sunday, 1 February 2009 21:12 (ten years ago) link

i gave it one chance and it made me feel nauseous, maybe even worse than that gross panda bear solo record, which i didn't think was possible

lex pretend, Sunday, 1 February 2009 21:21 (ten years ago) link

I listened to "My Girls" and I like the synth arpeggios and stuff, cause you know, that's totally my thing when done right, but then they ruin it with Beach Boys vocals, which always make me want to curl into the fetal position. Nauseous is absolutely right.

subatomic dawg (Ioannis), Sunday, 1 February 2009 21:29 (ten years ago) link

the vocals are probably the biggest turn-off for me but i don't know how people can take the shoddy basic-photoshop-filter production, the queasy infantilism or the meandering, aimless, pointless remedial melodies, repeated inanely as though any of them were hooks you needed to hear more than once.

but yeah, his voice. dude cannot sing, like not at all, and it's painful to listen to. and i don't think i've ever seen anyone defend it, which means that even AC fans know deep down how shitty it is.
