Lest you believe I was neglecting that expired poll at the top right of the page, here's the breakdown of the Midway Through the Year poll. What did you think was best?
15 (32%) - The Decemberists - The King Is Dead
3 (6%) - Iron and Wine - Kiss Each Other Clean
16 (34%) - Fleet Foxes - Helplessness Blues
6 (13%) - Kurt Vile - Smoke Ring For My Halo
4 (8%) - Toro y Moi - Underneath the Pine
2 (4%) - The Strokes - Angles
1 (2%) - My Morning Jacket - Circuital
6 (13%) - The Felice Brothers - Celebration, Florida
1 (2%) - The Smith Westerns - Dye It Blonde
8 (17%) - Radiohead - The King of Limbs
Man, you guys love the Fleet Foxes. It's the fourth HSW poll they've taken, as well as the second consecutive. They jockeyed with The Decemberists for most of the polling period, sneaking ahead at the last minute for a win. But anyway, they've certainly earned their popular acclaim.
This wraps up the Midway Awards! Excited to hear what the next half brings us...stay tuned!
