The “NME” Looks To Pop (And Crabcore) For Its Future

future50 The “NME” Looks To Pop (And Crabcore) For Its FutureApoplectic British music magazine NME has just issued its latest Future 50 list—”the 50 acts pushing things forward in 2009,” in the rag’s sorta-esteemed opinion—and one thing that’s sort of surprising to me is how pop-centric the overall list is. Sure, the top two slots are taken by Pitchfork darlings (a one-two punch of Animal Collective and The Knife), but the list also includes Lady GaGa, frequent Girls Aloud collaborators Xenomania, and the Idolator-beloved site Popjustice? Also the kids’ program Yo Gabba Gabba!, and… The Take That stage show?? Also, perhaps to goose newsstand sales by putting a little bit of the fear of God into anyone browsing the list online, the hyper-annoying, hypersexist, Hypercolored outfit 3OH!3 is at No. 41. The full list after the jump.

50. Gaggle
49. Xenomania
48. Invasion
47. Yo Gabba Gabba!
46. Diesel:U:Music Radio
45. Cooly G

6. The XX
5. Omar Souleyman

I don’t know about you, but for some reason, this list makes me a little excited about at least the next 15 minutes of what music might bring us. (Although thanks to the inclusion of Twitter, I’m trying to figure out if “Opera” is a reference to the style of music or the Web browser.)
