I've been a fan of these guys since I was 8 years old and when I heard Viva La Vida for the very first time. I think their older albums are far superior than anything after VLVODAAHF. X&Y became my new favorite after spinning it quite a few times on vinyl. Other then Coldplay, I listen to Neutral Milk Hotel, Death Grips, Animal Collective, Captain Beefheart, Radiohead, Daft Punk and Blank Banshee. I have been to Midwest Furfest and I'm planning on going to other conventions and seeing some live performances of artists I like this year.
