new Dirty Projectors is really great. I am getting into this album a lot easier then the other ones for some reason. "Dance For You" might be my new favorite song
Everytime I try to put on the new Dirty Projectors I get like two minutes of it and get bored or annoyed. I really liked Bitte Orca but I don't even have the mildest desire to listen to this latey.
Two of my favorites from the comp. It's a collection of New Zealand lo-fi psychedelic pop and rock. These groups were the forebears of what became the 90s and 2000s indie rock sound. There are just lots of really well-written songs there.
i love this thread. thank you for giving me the perfect response to incite me to download this.
Found some great night driving music. Really good throwback 80s synthpop type stuff, the main difference between this and everything else from this year in that vein being that this actually sounds like it's from the 80s.
LazerHawk - Visitors
Miami Nights 1984 - Turbulence
It's so good
The Sonnymoon album and Ep are in my opinion the most crazy original and brilliant peices of music to come out this year.
I keep hearing about this Animal Kingdom album, so I put it on just now and it really, really fucking blows.
Old Man Gloom is a post-metal/sludge metal super group that features members of isis, Converge, Cave-In, and Zozobra. They have a new album out called No. It's really heavy and stoney and has super chunky riffs and it is fucking awesome.
Suckers - Candy Salad is pleasant enough but it pales in comparison to their first LP.
I'm also all aboard the Swing Lo Magellan train.

Currently digging Holograms - s/t. Holograms are a four member (post-?)punk group from Stockholm, Sweden who just released their first LP. Really energetic and catchy, I especially love the bass lines. It's also probably safe to say they are fans of Joy Division. Has some weak points but I'll be revisiting it for sure.
Frank Ocean's channel ORANGE is now one of my favorites this year. The instruments are very sensual and all the songs are super catchy. Its not like Nostalgia ULTRA where there were samples and homages to other music, I feel like it came from Ocean and it's definitely his thing. Earls verse was a little boring compared to his other stuff, but the song with Andre 3000 Pink Matter is insanely good. Really liking it and am excited to give it a couple more spins. IF SOMEONE WANTS TO SELL 2 GA TICKETS TO HIS SHOW AT THE WILTERN, PLEASE PM ME.
Here's a video of Bad Religion, the defining moment of the album IMO

Baroness' Yellow and Green has a very good chance of being my favorite album of the year. Third time through and loving every second of it.
Fresh off his "JUICY AUSTRALIA TOUR"
