Re: (Unofficial) Favorite Artists of the 2010s

I'm of the stance of just letting people include whichever artists they please - the fact that so many people don't consider Cash or the Beach Boys 2010s artists means that in the overall calculations, they won't take spots away from true 2010s artists.

Well, in the aftermath of all this Big Thief discussion - they just announced they're dropping a SECOND album before the end of 2019. I for one could not be more excited, especially with the first single out today. Sounds like this will be the heavier counterpart to U.F.O.F.'s more subdued sound.
