Jan 1 2011, 19h19 por Cosmonaut_Here are 25 albums that have at some point this year have made sweet love to my ears.
25. Fang Island - Fang Island
Riffs, riffs and more riffs. What more could you possibly want?
24. 65daysofstatic - We Were Exploding Anyway
Local boys ditch put their post-rock tendencies on a backfoot and bring their more electronic side to the the forefront and even bring Robert Smith from The Cure on for the ride.
23. Portugal. The Man - American Ghetto
P.TM show their hip-hop influences to add to their already eclectic sound and creating a record that is catchier than a cold.
22. These New Puritans - Hidden
An album that came out of nowhere that combined Influences from the prog…
Ago 31 2010, 23h04 por mercsocks3I have 2 fucking weeks of nothing to do except wait for my guard card to come in the
mail. Hey, I spent the money. There's no going back now. I will be a goddamn security guard if that's all that's left. I won't be happy about it cause I know who I will most likely be dealing with in this town. Oh fucking well I guess. It's the not smoking
pot for those 2 weeks, just in case they drug test, that's really going to blow.
Jan 7 2010, 12h40 por sandrob57It's time to look back on my top albums from fall 2009. Here it goes.
1) Working For A Nuclear Free City - Businessmen & Ghosts
This album has been topping my charts the past few months for a very simple reason - all twenty nine songs kick ass. The layered guitars, intricate writing and detached vocals come together in a electronically infused shoegaze extravaganza. My current top tracks are "All American Taste", "Kingdom", "Soft Touch", and "England Part 2". This widely unknown band has some real talent; it's really shocking that they haven't been picked up by more listeners...
2) Animal Collective - Merriweather Post Pavilion
Animal Collective really blew me away the past couple of months. This unique band consisting of three musical artisans have created some of the most creative and downright beautiful music of the past decade. The band is said to have a high "learning curve"…

If you haven’t heard the swirling, diverse musical landscape of BLK JKS, drop what you’re doing and throw some of their tunes on your favorite music player, ASAP. Pronounced like “Black Jacks,” this four-piece band from Johannesburg, South Africa is unlike any rock band to come along in recent memory. Although they’re drawing comparisons to bands like TV on the Radio and Vampire Weekend, those really are just reference points. Make no mistake, BLK JKS are fiercely their own musical force.
On their debut EP Mystery released this past March on Secretly Canadian, they’ve managed to carve out a unique musical identity, drawing from many genres including art rock, indie rock, psychedelic rock, jazz fusion and world music. Racking up praise from such notable publications like The New York Times, SPIN, The Wall Street Journal, The New Yorker and LA Weekly, Mystery is generating a lot of buzz for a little 4-track EP.
