Where in the World

The great closing of the Noise Narcs American mind has continued: in 2010, we gave America 70% of our votes and points. In 2014, I’m proud able to announce that American albums got 78% of our votes and 80% of our points. Progress!

Philadelphia beats Brooklyn, but if you count the other boroughs, NYC wins out. For the first time, and this breaks my heart, a band from Washington, DC finally got a vote. Two Noise Narcs found the riot grrrl re-appropriation of Ex Hexs’ 40 minutes of same-sounding rawk worthy of the top ten. So congrats, Washington, DC, you came in ahead of Jackson, Kentucky as a musical hotspot. Enjoy it, you khaki-lovers.
