Tame Impala is only the safe new band because they make old music.

I still like them though so A for a remarkably solid list.

Wow, this one's easy. A wisely doesn't change much, B seems to think this is the Bizarro Cup.

EDIT: OK, that Jackson Sisters thing is great.

It's kinda depressing for a music forum to be proud of not knowing musicians.

I see A has only changed one track from before, although I guess we should be thankful it's got rid of "Death Cab For Cutie", but it could have done with changing 3 or 4 more tracks.

B is maybe a little too eager to go down the obscure route, but there's certainly some really enjoyable stuff there. For The Yardbirds, Skinhead Moonstomp and Marvin, among other things, it's an easy victory for B

Let U be the set of all united sets, K be the set of the kids and D be the set of things divided.
Then it follows that ∀ k ∈ K: K ∈ U ⇒ k ∉ D

Both just annoy me. There's NOTHING on them that I get even remotely excited about.

I guess.....A?

If it's good enough to knock me out of the first round, it's good enough to beat B.

A peters out toward the end whereas B makes several false starts before really getting going. A tough call but it's A, because that's the one that's frontloaded and therefore it made the stronger impression on me, which is hard to shake even on objective reflection.
