14 Dec 2012, 20:59 by SoylenceI totally didn't do one of these last year and I don't want to have 2012 up but not 2011! So I'm doing 2011 first.
Note: If I had actually done this a year ago, there wouldn't be any differences in the albums I chose but I would have ordered them differently.
10. Architecture in Helsinki - Moment Bends
genre: indie pop / new wave revival
I like Architecture's recent efforts so much better than their initial twee efforts. Not that I don't like twee- I just think they're better suited to 80s style pop music. Seriously, every song on this album is great faux-80s pop. Except for "B4 3D", which is a bad song.
Fave songs: "Escapee", "Yr Go To"
9. Cake - Showroom of Compassion
genre: alt rock? with funk + country influences? IDK man.
This is IMO the best Cake album so far because of it's highly consistent quality. Yeah that's right, it's better than Fashion Nugget AND Comfort Eagle.
Fave song: "Federal Funding"
3 Feb 2012, 12:43 by RastidHaving three broken computers for the last few months really put a damper on my thoroughness this year. However:
1. Wugazi - Wugazi
The Doomtree crew created not only the only mashup album I've ever liked, but really one of the most beautiful, brilliant albums I've heard in a long time. Even the name works. (Also worth noting: Doomtree's album was pretty great, too.)
2. Touche Amore - Parting The Sea Between Brightness And Me
This is one of those bands that just blows you away both live and recorded. So much sincerity.
3. The World/Inferno Friendship Society - The Anarchy And The Ecstasy
On the one hand, these guys just refuse to mess up. This album has two of my favorite of their songs ever, if not my favorite, in Canonize Philip K. Dick, OK? and 13 Years Without Peter King. But on the other hand, they just can't get it together to make a perfect record -- the rerecorded songs are not up to the originals.
4. Madeline - Black Velvet

(btw, proszę się nie spodziewać za wiele profesjonalizmu, poza linkami do recenzji ofc)
59. Bipolar Bears - Przestępstwa
wyjątkowa ohyda. http://www.uwolnijmuzyke.pl/bipolar-bears-przestepstwa
recenzja jest w tonie łagodnym. okrutnie się umęczyłam słuchając tego wielokrotnie celem jej napisania.
58. Adelrating – Spear of God and the Seraphim Bone
skuszona jakimś tagiem, nie pamiętam nawet jakim, ściągnęłam to sobie. Smutniejsze niż dubstepy! Jeden kawałek - nawet ok, taki mrok. Po całej płycie to już chyba tylko iść skoczyć z mostu można.
57. Yuck- Yuck
Strasznie mi się to nie podoba, rżnięcie zamiast nawiązywania, pójście na łatwiznę i nuda.
56. Asi Mina - Wybiegły!
1 Jan 2012, 13:29 by J-to-da-ZWell another year down... was a pretty good one I thought. Discovered a lot of new music, and some old favourites also released new stuff. Also rediscovered Eminem all over again, after almost a decade.....

14 Sep 2011, 01:13 by GroovemineWe were thrilled to catch up with team Yacht after their set at Bumbershoot 2011. They opened up about their creative process, inspirations, utopias and dystopias, fan videos and more.
GROOVEMINE: When you guys are in the studio and you hit a wall creatively is there a particular artist you look to for inspiration, maybe a documentary on how they make music?
Jona Bechtolt: Never music, no. We look at other artists that are outside of the field of music for inspiration. Largely our inspirations are non-musical.
We don’t ever hit a wall when we’re in the studio and, also, the studio is a rare occurrence for us. Previous to this album, we always recorded everything at home, or wherever we were at the time, sometimes on the road.
This time, our initial idea for going into the studio at all was just to gather sound, like record drum sounds and guitar and, later, process and reshape it in the computer. But we went in and we didn’t have anything ready, we went in and it all just sort of poured out of us. …
