THERE’S SUB POP JIZZ ALL OVER THIS YEAR’S PAZZ AND JOP LIST!

Those of you not unnaturally obsessed with industry-centric best-of polls may not be familiar with the Village Voice’s annual Pazz and Jop poll, a semi-definitive holy grailesque last-word style compendium of critics’ picks from around the country. Guess what? Tons of Sub Pop releases were listed by the hundreds of top-rate music critterati who contributed. For those of you who get all nihilistic about the E. Costello quote that “writing about music is like dancing about architecture” (peeps falsely attribute that to Zappa too, but whatevs), fuck you—this is interesting, if totally subjective. And plus, they like us!
