Nicest Users?

It seems our community is more commonly perceived as hostile rather than welcoming and friendly for some reason. But there are a ton of nice guys here and don't get enough credit so to speak lol. Jack and Deadly - in spite of his midly threatening name - come to my mind first, but there are a lot more i'm sure. Who would you say? List is digs and etc.

Dude has so much potential ahead of him, such an amazing sounding record. Breathe is incredible.
2Alt-J

Indie pop

Dig this more than their debut - unpopular opinion but hey. 3WW alone trumps all they've done before.

First time hearing a full effort of theirs, great as expected. Adam Sandler smoking a cigarette whlist staring at my soul is mildly upsetting tho.

Only listened to it once and it does seem to get a bit meandering halfway through, but seems cool all around. Glue sounds like something Moby would be proud of having on Play, by which i mean it rules.
5Bowery Electric
Beat

Shoegaze/Trip-hop

Can get a bit overlong sometimes but damn there's some amazing moments here. Fear Of Flying forever.
6Francoise Hardy
Tous les Garcons et les Filles


1962
Pop

Iconic artist and pretty decent first album - however, this being a debut, it's still very much a formative record for Hardy and has a couple of duller moments. Can't go wrong with the classic songs tho, title track and Temps de l'Amour particularly.
7Jaga Jazzist
What We Must


2005
Post rock/Jazz

Opener is absolutely incredible. I drifted off a bit towards the end after the first listen tho, but it's definitely a pretty good record and hopefully it grows on me further.
8LCD Soundsystem
American Dream


2017
Post punk/Electronic

Only heard it once yet and it starts off pretty slow iirc, but the second half picks up rather nicely. Talking Heads ripoff aside.
9Mogwai
Every Country's Sun


2017
Post rock

First experience with this band, definitely gonna be coming back for further listens.
10St. Vincent
Strange Mercy


2011
Indie pop

The title track, man.
11Stereolab
Dots and Loops


1997
Indie pop/Electronic/Experimental/Everything

Incredible songs and only a fringe above 100 votes. Sadier and Hansen's vocals go so well together.
12The Cinematic Orchestra
Every Day


2002
Downtempo/Nu-Jazz

It is from here on out my mission to discover everything Ninja Tune has ever put out, incredible record. Burn Out has been on my head for ages.
13The xx
I See You


2017
Indie pop

Finally grown on me, albeit moderately. The Hall and Oates sample cracks me up, in the best way i mean. The debut is a fun listen too.
