    The new No Age is fantastic. Huge step forward, but still fundamentally them. As Bryan said, a bit dialed back, but still pretty punk rock. It's noisy but cleaner overall. Very MBV feel to it. Fucking great.

    I'm in love with How to Dress Well's Love Remains. I liked the eps but love the full length.

    Is the full length out there with the re-recorded versions of the songs?

    Mostly just actually mastered I think. Not re recorded.

    I think it's cleaned up a bit too Jared. Much more penetrable.

    Anyway, it's an excellent album. Haziness abounds. These songs kind of float around in this unsettling and vaguely creepy way, but it's gorgeous and heartbreaking and amazing. I was talking with Bryan about him and we decided it's only going to get better as the weather turns...it's a lonely fall/winter album. A lot like Bon Iver in that sense. I also think it will be a grower. Really good.

    really liked this one on first listen

    It All Falls Apart by The Sight Below is simply stunning. I wish I had a chance to listen to it before now.

    Embarking on my first-ever listen to the Magic Kids' album. I'm not sure it's a good thing that the first song immediately reminds me of this:

    I listened to it a couple times and I think it's very well made and very pretty sounding, but it's not really doing a whole lot for me at the moment. I'll still check them out at FYF though. I'm really hoping seeing Titus Andronicus that day helps me to better appreciate them as well.

    Y'all should really listen to the new Screaming Females, especially if you're a fan of Dinosaur Jr. The guitar work on here is definitely reminiscent of the best Dino J stuff.

    You will have a whole new appreciation for Titus Andronicus after seeing them live. Trust me.

    The Black Ryder - Buy the Ticket, Take the Ride

    This technically came out last year in their native Australia, but it is getting a US release in a couple of weeks via Mexican Summer. A fucking gorgeous shoegaze album, but it's much more than that. Definitely psychedelic, but not overwhelmingly hazy or dreamy. A fair amount of variety on this while still sounding sonically cohesive. Really good songs, really great production. This is high on my favorites-of-this-year list.

    Is it an LP, and better yet, does it cost 35$? I figure since we're talking about Mexican Summer that'd be a conservative price estimate.

    I need to give it another listen or two. I love a catchy pop song, but on first listen, it strikes me as a little too cutesy.

    Yes yes yes, the new No Age record is top notch. Listened to it twice front to back today. So far the standouts are "Skinned" and "Shed and Transcend." They should have closed the album with the latter, instead of with the song after.

    I really dig the noisy instrumental tracks, too. Glitter still sucks, but it does fit well in the context of the album.

    Listened to it twice in a row on Friday. Mostly great. The last song is fucking phenomenal. I'm really excited about seeing them on Saturday.

    The Big Troubles full-length is absolutely fantastic. Listen here, then, after it blows your mind, buy it from Olde English Spelling Bee.

    I cannot stop listening to Pale Sketcher's Jesu:Pale Sketches Demixed. Such lovely soundscapes. I felt like the Jesu stuff was starting to sound pretty samey, but even though is a second look at a previous release, it still feels really fresh.

    How to Dress Well's full length is solid. It's a very dense album, too much to absorb on one listen. For me anyway. Vocals reminded me a lot of Peter Silberman from the Antlers.

    Jared's "straight up R&B" tag is misleading though, it's at least not that in the traditional sense. Although "Endless Rain" is very much R&B with that beat and all.

    But yeah, I had been intrigued by HTDW for some time but wanted to wait until a full LP was out there. And I'm glad I did.

    Hopefully 2010 is not a sign of what to come from this new decade because I have been unimpressed so far.

    Aside from:
    Titus Andronicus
    Arcade Fire
    Dead Weather
    Chemical Brothers
    The National
    and
    LCD

    I think the most exciting thing I've heard all year are the new songs Kanye West is releasing.

    Am I missing something or do you guys feel the same?
