    Default Best Album by Each Band

    I couldn't find a thread that was doing this for 2013 but I've seen it in past years and it seemed to help a lot of people out, including myself. Post the best album or the album you think is most worth checking out by each band on the lineup (or just a band you think some might not know much about).

    Portugal. The Man - Church Mouth
    Yeasayer - All Hour Cymbals
    Aesop Rock - Labor Days
    Danny Brown - XXX

    Of all the Diiv albums, that one is for sure their best one.
    Whiskey Sour

    2 oz blended whiskey
    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    1/2 tsp powdered sugar
    1 cherry
    1/2 slice lemon

    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.

    Berlin or New Sensations or New York.

    Of course the Banana album from the VU is a top 20 all-timer.

    In the top 5 of best live albums ever. (Live Rust, Budokan, How the West Was Won, and one other that I can't think of).

    Oh I know...just making a joke about a joke.

    These artists below all have multiple albums that are worthy of your time.

    Sigur Ros - Agaetis Byrjun


    Lou Reed - The Velvet Underground (Not "Lou Reed" obviously, but it's my personal fav of all the great stuff he's done.)


    Beach House - Teen Dream


    Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds - Murder Ballads (Currently tops my list for the Caveman. So much quality shit over the last ~30 yrs.)


    Modest Mouse - The Lonesome Crowded West and The Moon and Antarctica (I've given a lot of thought for quite awhile as to which of these two is my favorite, but can never seem to reach a conclusion. Therefore, I hereby declare them to be equally great.)

    Otherwise:
    Dino Jr - Bug
    Tame Impala - Lonerism
    Descendents - Milo Goes To College
    Modest Mouse and Grizzly Bear are too close to call.
