KZUU Top 30 — 12/4

Well, this was inevitable. Animal Collective ravaged the KZUU airwaves this week, charting 23 plays and asserting themselves as the indie kings of 2k9. Hmm, interesting timing. Right before year-end best-of lists come out, they’re back on everyone’s mind. Wool hats off to you, sirs (reference to it being 10 degrees in Pullman).

Remember when Devendra Banhart was #1 like a month ago? What a joke that was. Julian Casablancas fell off, too. The only artists that seem to be going strong are Neon Indian and The XX.

This is our penultimate chart of 2k9. Are you as sad as I am that the year is coming to a close?
