170 and a 1/3

Posted by selene on Monday, February 16th, 2009

33 1/3, the one album/one book series, has posted their shortlist of 170+ titles it is considering for its next round. Some “interesting” selections here. Cue Seth Myer’s “really?” voice: Vampire Weekend, really? Reservoir Dogs soundtrack, really? Lil Wayne, really? Very surprised some of these haven’t already been inked – NWA? AC/DC? Liz Phair? And one I considered pitching a couple of years back – The Violent Femmes.
