With the exception of the Nascimiento, nothing on B much floats my boat, so A by default.

Not that it's that much better, but that might be my favorite Of Montreal track I've heard.

People are really reaching out there, huh? Some pretty nifty choices and only a handful previously familiar to me across both ties. Think A has more of my speed but enjoying the breadth so far.

Neither is killing me.

A has a good Joe Meek track.

I like both here about equally; generally quite strong lists, with 3-4 tracks I like love, with the others just ok. How to separate them? Ok, I'll go for the tracks which I've been loving and spinning more recently, and those are on B with the Broadcast and King Gizzard.

Another match that's almost too close to call. Lots of stuff I like on both. I guess I'll give A a slight edge.

Getting better, getting better. 'Ohio/Machine Gun' is fab - but was used in the Covers Cup just a month or two ago. Sneaky pick. I like both the 2017 songs on A, though, and the rest too. Good list.
B has a Jim O'Rourke song but it looks like a Jim O'Rourke playlist. It's mainly good stuff, it just lacks heart and soul.
