KZUU Top 30 — 5/3

Wacky white Canadians rule the week. Kind of a lesser Sunset Rubdown. But I think they’ve finally made their Dragonslayer with Paul’s Tomb. Y’know, something you can really sink your teeth into, a good starting point for getting into the band. Maybe the new album is “entry-level Frog Eyes.”

Other thoughts on the final Top 30 of the year: Woods wooooo; Shearwater gets a boost from playing a show at the Bell Tower (which was awesome–everyone who didn’t go is a goofball); Dosh gets a blog post and makes Top 5. People are learning.
