    I’m terrible at picking and choosing, but it is nice to see some old AT selections on the list.

    Sorry Dave, 99% of those artists are totally off of my radar.

    Well, maybe 96%. I recommend keeping MIA and Gnarles Barkley :)

  4. I would suggest anything from the Justice Cross album. Or Daft Punk’s Alive 2007.

    Also, Fleet Foxes.
