Pazz and Jop Poll Critics' Poll 2012
The Village Voice's 39th annual Pazz and Jop critics' poll is live.
Drawing from some 700 ballots, tUnE-yArDs' w h o k i l l topped the favorite albums list, and Adele's "Rolling in the Deep" topped the singles list.
Those looking for familiar New Times bylines in the individual ballots will notice me (with Ty Segall's Goodbye Bread topping my album list and Michael Kinwanuka's "Tell Me a Tale" winning best single), Jay Bennett (Black Lips' Arabia Mountain, no singles), Mike R. Meyer (Elder, Dead Roots Stirring/Benjy Bronk (ft. Elisa Jordna), "Online Sweetheart"), Dan Gibson (Antlers, Burst Apart/Michael Kiwanuka, "Tell Me a Tale") and Mike Escoto (Bon Iver, Bon Iver/Bon Iver "Halocene"). Though he doesn't have a ballot, NT contributor Serene Dominic does offer some pretty funny comments on the Top 10-plus.
Did I miss any other Arizona folks?
