    Zola Jesus too , but I can't remember what was released when...loved her poppy stuff, the split LP with Burial Hex, the LA Vampires collabaration. A true star.

    @warrenellis I actually assumed you tossed it after they put the hit out on you. I too thought it fell short.
    • CommentTimeDec 5th 2010
    The new Grinderman had enough weird sounds and things happening to make me come back. Though I admit that it probably would have been bumped if some of the delayed releases I'm waiting on had actually made it out this year.

    well for me the kicker on the album was the song "Palaces Of Montezuma". I just LOVED that song. Been a while since i heard any decent love songs...

    These are those I am fairly sure about:

    Alcest's Écailles de Lune
    Anathema's We're Here Because We're Here
    Crippled Black Phoenix's I, Vigilante
    Gil Scott-Heron's I'm New Here
    Julie Christmas' The Bad Wife
    Kylesa's Spiral Shadow
    Nevermore's Obsidian Conspiracy
    The Ocean's Heliocentric
    Sage Francis' Li(f)e

    These are the ones I'm less certain of, either but I suspect at least some will be growers while others I'm quite enjoying will lose their lustre:

    Atheist's Jupiter
    Cee Lo Green's The Lady Killer
    Dax Riggs' Say Goodnight to the World
    Electric Wizard's Black Masses
    Enslaved's Axioma Ethica Odini
    Four Tet's There is Love in You
    Greydon Square's The Kardashev Scale
    The Ocean's Anthropocentric
    Red Sparowes' The Fear is Excruciating, but Therein Lies the Answer
    Reflection Eternal's Revolutions Per Minute
    Swans' My Father Will Guide Me Up a Rope to the Sky
    Ted Leo & the Pharmacists' Brutalist Bricks

    I actually think Grinderman 2 as an album is superior to the first, though No Pussy Blues is probably a better song than any particular song on the second album. But I am totally blown away by the album overall. Mickey Mouse and the Goodbye Man is probably my favorite, though Kitchenette gets stuck in my head all the damn time.

    @ mybrainhurts
    Have you heard Unfun's Sick Outside View? They're one of those bands that seem to be cropping up a lot lately that sound like they were trying to make a hardcore album and got it wrong slightly and ended up playing really noisy punk rock.

    shit...i hope its not one of those things i get way into, as they just played a house party like two weeks ago that i missed :(

    @ Jive

    That Gil Scott-Heron album is pretty good. I enjoy it while it's playing, but for some reason I rarely think to put it on. The Enslaved was also reasonably good, but there's something about it that kept it out of the top of my list, too.
    • CommentTimeDec 6th 2010 edited
    Deftones: Diamond Eyes
    Gil Scott-Heron: I'm New Here
    Isobel Cambell and Mark Lanegan: Hawk
    The Dead Weather: Sea of Cowards
    Shining: Blackjazz
    Melissa Auf Der Maur: Out of Our Minds
    How To Destroy Angels: Self Titled E.P.
    Ray Lamontagne and The Prairie Dogs: God Willin & The Creek Don't Rise
    Broken Social Scene: Forgiveness Rock Band
    Rob Zombie: Hellbilly Deluxe 2

    thats it for albums, and single of the year for me is Atari teenage Riot: Activate

    Damn! forgot about the Harvey Milk album...

    .... and the Oneohtrix point never!

    • CommentTimeDec 6th 2010
    @nigredo, my music taste and your music taste should totally get married.

    what's with this year's Kayo Dot? a lot of friends have been losing their shit over it; i know i listened to it but i can't recall finding it at all interesting.
    • CommentTimeDec 6th 2010 edited
    Tell me about it.

    Re: Kayo Dot, I've got a bit of a weakness for them. Plus I genuinely think the album is pretty good.
    • CommentTimeDec 7th 2010
    i'm re-listening and now i remember that i deleted it because i listened to it once and said "okay, so now they're Cerberus Shoal. except i already have plenty of Cerberus Shoal."
    • CommentTimeDec 7th 2010
    Ah. Can't really say I would ever think that. Kayo Dot, as much as they channel traditional psychedelia in some ways, veer more towards modern composition where Cerberus Shoal has always sounded more like Sun City Girls meets Popol Vuh kinda psychedelia to me. Both of them manage to sound an awful lot like Pink Floyd quite often, but that's where the similarity ends, I think.

    Having been a fan of Maudlin of the Well too, I think COYOTE makes a lot of sense within Toby Driver's ouevre.
    • CommentTimeDec 7th 2010 edited
    I'd like to add a recently discovered gem Flying Lotus - Cosmogramma
    Fantastically random and entertaining.
    • CommentTimeDec 7th 2010
    I would like to add the Tron: Legacy Soundtrack to the list. It dropped today and is fresh Daft Punk music.
    • CommentTimeDec 9th 2010 edited
    This new Dax Riggs is pretty damn good after a listen. A nice discovery from this thread that he had a new album. Might come to enjoy it even more than WSOBL. Tried listening to The Dead Weather, ugh...don't get it...although I only made it two songs. Will try again though. Need to check out that Tron Soundtrack too.

    Surprised nobody mentioned the Smashing Pumpkins EP. I really dig it and want more.

    Also really wish I could get intp Kayo Dot like I did with Maudlin of the Well. Will try the new one.
