Yes, I was avoiding "white boys with guitars" (which seems to be a trend of the whole cup this year, which works for me), perhaps a bit self-consciously. But yes, I like every single one of these tracks a great deal. I was judging it on the music, not on the video (Run the Jewels), the instrumentation (TMTCH) or the age (Blind Alfred).
I was trying to show that there is greatness outside the BCB mainstream, but it's probably just as well that you cloth-ears don't hear it the same way I do. It's going to come down to BCB 100 redux or unlistenable shite, and I hope you're all happy with your choice. You coulda had more.
I will sleep well tonight.

A) squirrels have really small brains (smaller than the nuts they're storing)
B) They have no fucking clue!
