I know this isn’t the most popular statement I could make, but I’m just gonna say it–I really, really loathe The Lumineers and Mumford & Sons.  Like ear bleed and migraine-type loathe. Whewwwww…that felt good to say.  I’d rather listen to Blurred Lines  on a  loop all summer long than listen to those cardboard box-kicking goons. Wait.  I did do just that…

Also? No Bowie? FFS.
