Last week, I saw Deerhunter at Emo's and it was an excellent show. I had no idea, however, that there was an opening band by the name of Nite Jewel who had this sort of lo-fi disco sound going. As is the case with putting out a "best of" list before the year is actually up, you usually end up excluding something that you discover late as I did with Nite Jewel. They were excellent live and thier new album - My CD - should have definitely been included as one of my favorite albums of this year. I pulled the same exclusionary thing last year with the Chromatics and Health who put out deserving albums as well. Sorry Nite Jewel.
