The Heliocentrics - 13 Degrees of Reality
This album is incredibly good, and incredibly hard to pin down. It's really all over the place musically - the songs vary from noise to very Can-esque krautrock to free jazz to drone to field recording of sorts and then some. Yet somehow it all makes sense and the album feels really together overall.

I need to stay out of this thread because I have hundreds of releases in queue to listen to now and I've already spent an unreasonable amount on music this year.
HO-LY shit this new Burial EP. Talk about a giant middle finger to everyone's year end album lists. I'm going to be listening to this thing non-stop for a while.
Seriously. While I never was in the group that were dissatisfied by Burial sticking to a single sound (something that I never really felt he was doing anyway), had I assumed that a shift in the formula would result in something this glorious, I may have pushed for it as well. It's stunning.
Has anyone heard of the band Guards? They have a fantastic semi new album. Check them out
Certain songs they get so scratched into our souls
I've never seen anyone here talk about them.
I've heard the album, and it's one of the worst I've heard from this year.
There are fun bands that make interesting music, and there are fun bands that don't. I found Guards to be the latter.
Join the Dots by Toy is fantastic (thanks Crispin). They remind me of a less synthy version of the Horrors. Opening track is instrumental but it's a beast:
Toy's last album was really good. i need to get on that!
No criteria, just something that holds my attention and isn't really bland. The Guards album sounded very of-the-moment to me, aping other sounds I've heard done a million times over recently. Same with that band Javelin, who thank goodness never really took off.
Sorry for what kid
Guards made an impression on you
...nothing wrong with that
I remember the days when water was free and porn cost money.
So I guess Beyoncé just released a new album about 30 minutes ago.

It's pretty fucking good. It sounds so far like she's bringing in the type of impressionistic R&b style Blood Orange and Solange have been championing and placing it over trap beats. Immediately more compelling than the last album of hers.
