    2010 is half over already. Distract yourself from the existential horror caused by the ravages of time by telling us what albums have impressed you so far this year.

    A few I have really enjoyed:

    Murder By Death - Good Morning, Magpie
    Gaslight Anthem - American Slang
    Danzig - Deth Red Sabaoth
    Deftones - Diamond Eyes
    High on Fire - Snakes for the Divine
    Clinging To The Trees Of A Forest Fire - Songs Of Ill-Hope and Desperation

    DANGERS-messy isnt it?
    AEROSOLS-s/t 12"+7"
    WALLS-tour only 7"

    and i know theres at least one or two more im trying to remember that are just escaping me at the moment.

    Agree with Crystal Castle II, Deftones' n Danzig's new ones. I'll throw in:

    O Children's Debut (forget the title) purely because they TRIED to synthesize the awesomeness of Joy Division and Bauhaus (however badly they failed)
    How to Destroy Angels EP (counts, donit?)

    I know it's a late '09 but the newest thing I'm listening to at the moment is Them Crooked Vultures' self titled album.

    Josh Ritter's So Runs the World Away
    Dr. Dog's Shame Shame

    I'm really rather woefully behind on music this year. Need to get on that.

    Honestly, the new Danzig album is the first album I have listened to in entirety this year.

    Autechre - Oversteps
    Glad they went in a new, ambient direction.

    Guilty Simpson - O.J. Simpson
    Another Madlib masterpiece.

    Yellow Swans - Going Places
    Last album from my favorite local noise act

    Skulltaste by Mux Mool was quite good. Some Spanish hip hop too. Haven't listened to so many 2010 things yet though.

    The only stuff I have from 2010, apparently, is How to Destroy Angels (which I find to be alright, but nothing amazing) and Melissa auf Der Maur's Out of Our Minds, which is about on par with her last album, but features a duet with fuckin' Danzig, which I think is probably the best new song I've heard in something like three years.

    ETA: Holy run-on sentence. I should throw a few more commas in there, just 'cause.

    65daysofstatic and Toundra's new albums are pretty great. Dessa's new album will probably be the best hip hop of the year.

    THE BESNARD LAKES, The Besnard Lakes Are The Roaring Night
    EVELYN EVELYN, Evelyn Evelyn
    LOS CAMPESINOS!, Romance Is Boring

    One album I was really disappointed in was the new MGMT. Utter dreck.

    Alcest's Écailles de Lune is about the only album from this year that I've heard thus far which really stands out. I suppose maybe Gil Scott-Heron's I'm New Here. We'll see. And I still have to give Red Sparowes' The Fear is Excruciating, but Therein Lies the Answer a good listen. I'm interested in hearing the new Anathema and Nevermore albums which have recently been released and Lupe Fiasco's Lasers when it finally drops. Hopefully, it'll be on a par with Food and Liquor and The Cool.
