KZUU Top 30 — 11/23

Dem jeans is awfully skinny. Neon Indian is #1 this week, and it has everything to do with the show he played in Moscow on the 14th. Last week’s #1, Julian Casablancas, drops to #6. Devendra Banhart, the #1 from two weeks ago, falls of the face of the planet as (I assume) people realize how bad his new album is. Enjoy.

  1. I can’t believe Neon Indian is #1… I remember downloading “I should have taken acid with you” from the Hipster Runoff blog back in early summer, and thinking it was a fun song but wouldn’t be taken seriously by too many people. I thought it sounded like a weirder electro version of animal collective, who already was pushing their limits as to being widely accepted by indie kids everywhere. Anyways, kudos to them.

  2. They should. KZUU should not discriminate based on song length.
    Maybe each station officer should make a post. Or there should be a post made listing their favorite bands or something of this nature. Kind of a get to know the people at KZUU. Djs too!

  3. There is no discrimination. The album is readily available for airplay, is it not? People like pop songs, they don’t want a 7-minute jam that’s slow to develop with a questionable payoff at the end. This is a fact.

    But by all means, jam away. I heard “some guy” only played really long songs for his entire show last week or something.

    As for the “meet the DJs” section. Ehhhh no. Favorite bands lists are nebulous and don’t really reflect the breadth of a person’s taste. Unless, of course, that list contains exclusively post-hardcore/mathcore, and Saddle Creek bands. j/kkkkkkkkkkk

  4. I heard that guy. It was a good show.

    Maybe it should be favorite albums. Or bands they feel people should check out.

    KZUU>KUGR that’s something we can all agree upon.
