Each month at Head On we pick two musical themes and pit them against each other on the dance floor.
The end of 2013 is fast approaching, and we’re furiously reviewing the songs that came out over the last year to find our favorites. We decided that we’d like to put 2013 to the test. Was it that good of a year for music? Ok, we dug that Daft Punk record, and the return of Justin Timberlake, and CHVRCHES. And a lot of good indie things came out by the likes of Classixx, Holy Ghost!, Duke Dumont, Young Galaxy, Vampire Weekend, Cut Copy, the Arcade Fire, etc. But what if we compared it to the best songs from, say, 10 years ago? The more we looked back, 2003 was a killer year for music. Not only was pop radio actually pretty damn good with the likes of Outkast, Beyonce, Fanny Pack, and even the Darkness, but there were plenty of good underground hits we loved by the likes of Junior Senior, Goldfrapp, & Head On champion LCD Soundsystem.
So we’re doing what any good Head On DJ would do: we’re pitting 2013 against 2003 in a no-holds-barred cage match. Anno a anno. Resident DJ Brian Blackout and guest DJ Fucci will do battle, and you’ll help us pick a winner. Are all those old people who say music keeps getting worse right? Or was 2003 just a really great year? Help us decide (by dancing).
ALSO! We’re celebrating 1 year of awesome Head On parties come January. Help us pick out which Head On theme we should REMATCH by voting in our pretty unscientific interwebs poll. January’s theme will be based ENTIRELY on this poll:
