    Dataline's debut album "Hear Your Beat" is worth a listen. Makes me think "if Boards of Canada did techno".

    I'll have to say they actually get better as they go. Tre! has some of the best lyrics Billie has written in years, really fun catchy guitar solos (which have been a big new part of the band's music for these three albums), and Tre Cool absolutely crushes the drumkit throughout.

    No matter, 36 new Green Day songs in a year makes me a happy camper. Everything about them just continues to sit well with me after all these year and while its "simple" music compared to a lot of what I listen to nowadays I still really enjoy whatever they are up to.

    Hoping for a strong Billie Joe to get back on the road and really put these songs to the test along with their back catalog. Really see some fiery sets coming in the future.

    I would recommend giving the trilogy at least one open minded listen if you have been turned off by Green Day from American Idiot, 21st Century, and generally growing out of it. Its a big wealth of music from a band like them where you may not enjoy every tune, but you'll find a good amount of song you will if you have even the slightest interest.

    I finally listened to Dan Deacon's new album after finding it for a dollar at my local record store, and the first 5 songs are fairly good, but wow, does the album really take flight in the last half...USA I-IV is monumentous.

    Yeah Tre's the best by far. I liked Dos on first listen but after listening to all three in succession I think it's the worst. It has that dumb rapping song and the other songs are spotty. Uno's good but monotonous. Tre has the best hooks, best variety, and most "maturity" of all three. Will be ordering on vinyl.

    Um, so Stereogum got something really right by putting Parquet Court's Light Up Gold in their year-end list. This shit's really, really good.

    Finally listened to the new Titus Andronicus. While I don't think it as good as The Monitor, it definitely is great. It's more comfortable-sounding than the last album, if that makes any sense.

    Listened to the new Sword album as well. I liked it better than Warp Riders on first listen. I don't think they will ever put out something as immediate and excellent as their first album, but Apocryphon is well worth your time if you are into them.

    I keep saying this... but it is by far the most underrated album of the year. I have barely heard anyone else talk about it, and it hasn't shown up on any year end lists that I have seen. USA I-IV is an absolute beast of a musical composition. It is almost more like a classical piece than a typical "song." I love the album start to finish, but USA I-IV is an outstanding achievement that I don't think Dan Deacon has received the recognition he deserves for it.

The two opening tracks are a bit of a red herring, as the brooding tone which these songs develop gives way to a rather loose and free-wheeling stylistic exploration over the remaining 60+ minutes. Each individual song seems to occupy its own little universe, and with many tracks stretching well over 6 minutes there is plenty of room for the duo to create some very intriguing sonic landscapes. I have a feeling those who enjoyed Blondes' self-titled release will dig this album, especially tracks like this one:

    We ate things and watched this video set to USA I-IV. It is awesome. Particularly, what I think is the Alb balloon festival party midway through.

    I really liked it too, it's less abrasive than Bromst. Now I still enjoy Bromst, but there are moments where I'm like "AAAAHHHTOOMANYFUNNYLOUDNOISESAAAAHHHHHHHH!!!! "

    Yes. I listened to it again last night and was gonna post it in here as well. It definitely has much wider appeal than just techno fans. At times it's closer to a modern approach to krautrock. I'm pretty sure it'll be in my top 10 for the year. Highly recommended.

    They've been quietly pushing that album for a few months. On first listen it didn't really do much for me (not bad, but not memorable) but on subsequent listens some of the songs are pretty great.

    Hungry Ghost - Hungry Ghost. If you like bluesy rock stuff with lots of swagger and fucking great drumming (Sara Lund from Unwound is the drummer, so of course it's killer) you need to check this out. They quietly released the album this year after years of touring. I saw them back in early 2009 and they were one of the most surprising and memorable shows I ever caught at the Smell.

    Edit: If you want to listen on Spotify, it's currently listed as the extra tracks from a 2006 album with the same title. The one I'm recommending starts with the track Powerman and ends with a killer noise/blues cover of Nick Drake's Know.

    Literature - Arab Spring is a delighful jangle-pop/lo-fi record a la Times New Viking that, despite having 10 tracks and being only being 22 minutes long, has some really catchy melodies. Listen here.

    I am only three tracks into the new Paul Kalkbrenner album, but so far I am loving this. Will report back when I finish it, which could be any time in the next few days.

    It seems like no one has been talking about the Gaslamp Killer - Breakthrough, but they really should be, as it's really fucking good. I listened to it a couple of weeks ago expecting to hate it based on some videos I've seen of him live, but positive reviews and the fact that he produced some of the best tracks on Gonjasufi's A Sufi & A Killer made me give it a proper chance. It's a nice mix of crate-digging instrumental hip-hop, Brainfeeder oddball electronics, and cross-genre downtempo grooves. The list of guest appearances is about equal to the number of tracks and includes Gonjasufi, Daedelus, and Shigeto. It's one of those really fun, wildly eclectic albums where just about everything is thrown into the mix with creative abandon, switching gears every two minutes or so. Check it out.

    I'm listening to Bosse-de-Nage - III and it's one of the cooler black metal releases I've heard this year. The instruments are super clear, the vocals aren't as screechy as they frequently are in the genre, and they have a great drummer.

    People, why didn't you tell me about Profound Lore records before? They're totally full of great.

    I thought this record would get more love after their split with Deafheaven but it didn't seem to. I love the addition of some elements of early screamo to the mix of atmospheric black metal. Realy good stuff. Profound Lore is a fantastic metal label. So many great bands to choose from.

    I've been enjoying the soundtrack to This Is 40 this week. There are new songs from Fiona Apple, Norah Jones, Graham Parker and (3 from) Lindsey Buckingham . There's also some older stuff/new renditions from Paul McCartney, Paul Simon, Yoko Ono, Wilco, Ryan Adams. I'm not familiar with almost all of these songs, so they're all brand new to me. Jon Brion did the score and he's also featured on the album.

    Tor's "Drum Therapy" album is pretty damn good. He's the first artist to get signed to Emancipator's new label, Loci Records.

    Okay, I need to retract my earlier remarks in this thread - and others - on the GY!BE album. I think, even after I downloaded the CD rip, I was still listening to the really terrible quality vinyl rip that surfaced earlier. Luckily, I also pre-ordered the vinyl, and while it sat in shrink wrap until today, I am so, so glad I bought it. I listened to it just now and every song astonished me. It's like I never heard the record before. A+ work, and now I need to figure out where in my top 50 to put it.
