    The new Dirty Projectors has made quite the impression on you, eh?

    I've really enjoyed it as well, especially after listening to it on my good headphones last night. I was just a bit surprised to see it so high up your list after being out for only a week or so.

    The list is very tentative. Most of the albums on there, especially the bottom half of the list, haven't gotten more than a few spins. Definitely more of a first impression list than anything, but that's how my lists always are at this time of the year.

    That makes sense; I always find numbering/listing/ranking to be a bit arbitrary, anyways. I will say that I've enjoyed the new DP more after each listen, and for me that's usually a good indicator that it will be one of my favorites of the year.

    I'm so completely far behind on checking out new releases this year that it'd be impossible for me to post a list, but y'all have given me a lot of stuff to check out (that I've listened to once or twice casually or haven't listened to at all).

    While I am thoroughly enjoying "RAP Music" by Killer Mike, at the moment, I doubt that the album will be as interesting by the end of the year. I can’t believe that it has cracked so many people’s top 5s.

    On a huge metal kick right now. I've been lsitening over and over again to:

    Baroness - Yellow & Green
    Old Man Gloom - No
    Bréag Naofa - Untitled
    Alcest - Les Voyages De L'Âme
    If These Trees Could Talk - Red Forest

    Also still really loving:
    Niki & the Dove - Instinct
    Yellow Ostrich - Strange Land
    Light Asylum - s/t

    I like a whole bunch of stuff this year though, i could list 50 albums easily. trying to not listen to new stuff for a little bit and just digest all this stuff. Can't even begin to rank things. my top 10 changes week to week.

    I've tried listening to that Alcest album a few times and it just seems so cheesy to me at most times.

    Huh, i've never once thought of it as being cheesy, but i am a fan of big, sweeping, operatic metal.

    Drinkey, I pretty much put everything you like on my list of things to check out.

    I feel like I've listened to nothing new this year, but when I think about it, I have, it's just that it's been very oriented towards festival research, and I've only done EDM festivals this year so it's very unbalanced. Plus there are so many things I've listened to only once or twice and don't feel I've really absorbed yet. Anyway, here is a start.

    Olafur Arnalds & Nils Frahm - Stare [EP] 5/5 (the digital copy also has a Max Cooper remix, but the entire EP is beautiful & I've probably played this record more than anything else I've purchased this year)
    Max Cooper - Egomodal [EP] 4.5/5
    Todd Terje - It's the Arps [EP] 4.5/5
    Blondes - Blondes 4/5
    Squarepusher - Ufabulum 4/5
    John Talabot - fin 4/5 <-- Talabot's FACT magazine mix is probably my favorite thing of the whole year.
    Actress - R.I.P 4/5
    Blawan - Long Distance Open Water Worker [EP] 3.5/5
    Camea - City Watching Over Me [EP] 3/5
    Lalapaux - When You're Gone 3/5

    I'm really poor at making distinctions between singles and EP's for EDM, like there may be things that even the official release refers to as an EP but if you've got a track and 2 or 3 remixes of the same track, I have trouble calling that a EP. Anyway. Here's a few singles or short format releases that I didn't list above but that I liked a lot.
    RRose - Artificial Light 4.5/5
    Lucy & Xhin - LX4/LX5 4/5
    Max Cooper - Mechanical Concussion 3.5/5
    Function - Obsessed [EP] 3/5
    Ben Sims - Disco Trix Vol. 2 2.5/5

    MOST of the indie I've listened to so far this year has not suited me at all... but I still have a few dozen things queued to listen to.

    Pluto is so solid.... seriously infectious album. Everyone I show it to can't stop playing it. Guess I need to listen to the OF Tape again... I didn't really like it the first time through. Should revisit.

    I keep expecting to get bored with Pluto because I play it too much, but it just never seems to get old.

    It's 3 months old now, but did you all see the best of 2012 so far list at The Quietus? Over the last few days I've been going through some of the stuff I hadn't heard and there are some really good albums on there.
