1. Slowdive/My Bloody Valentine.
40 Days, When you sleep, Honey Power, Sleep, Alison.
I can't pick one, they're both amazing bands and i could listen to all their music without getting tired of it. They're probably the only bands/artists that have had that effect on me.

2. The Smashing Pumpkins.
Mayonaise.

3. Baths
<3 is the best song that has come out this decade.

4. Memoryhouse.
Lately (Deuxieme).

5.Houses.
Medicine make me feel a certain type of way.

honorable mentions: Au Revoir Simone, Best Coast, Lucius, Evenings, No Trend.

Oh maybe, maybe it's the clothes we wear
The tasteless bracelets and the dye in our hair
Or maybe, maybe it's our nowhere towns or our nothing places
But we're trash, you and me
We're the litter on the breeze
We're the lovers on the streets
Just trash, me and you
It's in everything we do
It's in everything we do

Radiohead and Linkin Park seem pretty popular on MAL. This is proof of MALs bad taste.

I don't like choosing all time favourites, but Laura Stevenson is my favourite artist at the moment. I've been listening to her album Wheel regularly since it came out almost three years ago. I love it from cover to cover.

So I'm not sure I'd call these my favourite, rather just the bands I feel like I've been listening to the most recently. In no particular order:

Grouplove -- I'm With You
The Avett Brothers -- Laundry Room (specifically the version they played for NPR)
Toe -- I honestly can't choose a song
Kinoko Teikoku -- Hard to choose, maybe the Sea and the Bouquet
twenty one pilots -- I'm fighting off the urge to list 10+ songs for them as my fav

It's really hard to choose the top songs from my these bands 'cause I like so many of them.

my Top 2 favorite songs (but Dinosaur Jr. is also certainly my #1 artist, and it's gonna be pretty hard to be more important to me than them)
1. Dinosaur Jr. - No Bones (Get Me is also close)
2. Boca Livre - Neném
I'll think about the rest later, it's difficult to decide..
