- The debut of Clicky Clicky Live

- JB's honorable mentions: New Mendicants, Steiner, The Collected Fictions, The Wrong Shapes

- Ovlov's breakup/reunion

- JK's honorable mentions: Hallelujah the Hills, The Hold Steady, Krill, Speedy Ortiz, Mastodon

- JB: La Ligas Menores makes good indie pop out of Argentina

- JK: The War on Drugs' Lost in the Dream has an '80s feel

- JB: Krill has best song imagining oneself as poop

- JK: F'd Up combines gruff vocals with intricate arrangements

- JB: She Sir is a two-piece from Austin that takes its time

- JK: New Cloud Nothings record continues a winning formula

- JB: Speedy Ortiz continues to impress

- Touring non-stop despite loss of guitarist

- JK: Gord Downie and the Sadies recorded album over several years
