I guess I just like being in tune with the band for that certain moment in time their albums are in production.
Sweet, so I'm planning to pick an album from each poster and go over them during Reading Week.

And as a drummer, I really obsess over Janet Weiss, she's so badass.
I was introduced to them just a little over a month ago so I haven't even given any full album a listen. I dislike it when I get into a band only to find out they are either broken up or someone is dead. Carrie Brownstein is the one that stuck out to me. Her guitar work deserves more credit. But, man these ladies can sure entertain. Too bad they pretty much don't plan on getting back together.
EDIT: On the topic of drummers, I like Brian Chase of Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Ben Koller of Converge and Zbigniew Robert Promiński of Behemoth. All three are entertaining, but the latter two are sick in their consistency and time signature changes though their bands aren't within the genre you seem to like.
