2020 Songs So Far: Round 1.3

Post by Schüttelbirne » Sat Sep 05, 2020 12:25 pm

Welcome to the next round!

All you have to do is listen to the songs and vote for your favorite in the individual matchups.
You may only vote if you have actually heard all the songs in the matchup you're voting for.

The deadline is September 12th at 12:00 (UTC).

If you want to see the entire bracket, go to this post. I updated it with last round's results. I hope it's clear who will face who in Round 2.

Here's this week's matchups:
1. Run the Jewels | a few words for the firing squad (radiation) vs. Dua Lipa | Break My Heart
2. Drive-By Truckers | Thoughts and Prayers vs. Khruangbin | So We Won‘t Forget
3. Kaja Draksler Octet | Away! vs. The Psychedelic Furs | No One
4. Haru Nemuri | 愛よりたしかなものなんてない vs. Bob Dylan | Key West (Philosopher Pirate)
5. Emilie Zoé & Christian Garcia-Gaucher | The Painter vs. Taylor Swift | cardigan
6. Charli XCX | forever vs. Deap Lips | Love Is a Mind Control
7. Agnes Obel | Camera‘s Rolling vs. Poppy | Don‘t Go Outside
8. Hen Ogledd | Trouble vs. The Flaming Lips | Flowers of Neptune 6


Here's the playlist:



Have fun!

Huge thank you to whoever nominated this. The atmosphere is to die for, it's like if Elliott Smith went metal. I had been avoiding this album because I know Poppy's internet personality, and thought it would be too gimmicky. But now it is on my to-listen list.
