bear in mind there's a ton of albums that came out this year that i haven't heard, also many that i KNOW i need to hear, like the new Sigur Ros
. ....why haven't i heard that, anyway?
the hell is my problem...
anyway. on we go. aren't you excited?
25. Friendly Fires
- Friendly Fires
awesome! finally an indie band that's not married to either the dance-punk sound or the "look how depressed i am" sound or the cookie cutter indie alternative sound. loves it.
current favorites: In the Hospital
, Skeleton Boy
24. Shiny Toy Guns
- Season of Poison
i haven't had much of a chance to listen to this yet, but from what i've heard i can see that the energy from the debut is intact. i do think the addition of heavy guitars was a good idea, it kind of separates them from that whole neo-electro scene they were lumped in with.
current favorites: Ghost Town
- Does You Inspire You
damn. i've got to tell you what a loser i felt like when i found out that bruises was in a commercial…
