I think I remember seeing somewhere (maybe even on this forum?) that Tortoise are going to release a new album this year. That might become a strong contender for album of the year, next to Mono of course!

Hacride's Lazarus has just been released, and I've come to one conclusion: it's one of the strongest releases any French metal band has put out in a long time. *coughgojiracough* Catchier, stronger songwriting, much more dynamic, more technical while still retaining a high amount of coherence throughout. A possible contender for my top albums of this year.

Go ahead and add in Patrick Wolf's "The Bachelor" to my top albums of '09. It took a full listen or two for it to really sink in its teeth, but good God. Has it ever.

Andrew Bird's Noble Beast is probably the only thing I've heard enough of and loved enough of to have a pretty certain spot on my list.

Seaworthy - 1897
A series of ambient guitar pieces mixed, matched, paired and complemented with field recordings taken in and around an old ammunition depot. Seaworthy is like a less distorted version of Eluvium (sort of) in that he uses primarily a guitar and some simple looping techniques to produce complex and wonderful songs.

Have you heard his first album?  If so, how does it compare?

The earliest album of his I've heard is 'Map in Hand.' I've never heard 'It's Humbling When Two Saints Meet' or 'Backwoods Architecture' so I can't comment on those. As far as '1897' vs.' 'Map in Hand,' however, I'd definitely go for the former. There's more of an emphasis of electronics in the new one, along with field recordings and more clear guitar work. It's a bit more minimal overall and more melancholy. As beautiful as 'Map in Hand' was, this new one is more interesting and dynamic.

Guys that Phoenix Album really is fucking incredible. Like, probably the best record I've heard this year, and definitely the most instantly amazing. So many perfect tracks, such good pop music.


Look, here's a mediafire link to it. Listen to this dang album, y'all, if you haven't already. Then go buy their albums, and see them live, and support them so they keep making awesome records like this.

Haha, whoops, 'Map In Hand' was his first album as far as I knew. ;)  Thanks for the comments - I picked up 'Map In Hand' basically because I'm a huge fanboy for the label it was on and was a bit disappointed.  I'll definitely look into the new one, though.

Took about 5 listens to really start enjoying it, which is probably 4 more chances than most non-fanboys would give it.

So far this year I've really enjoyed quite a few albums.
The new Decemberists has been a bit disappointing, but I need to give that another listen. Otherwise it doesn't belong on my list.
Out of nowhere, I've really been enjoying the new Thermals album.
Otherwise, here's a list of my own recommendations.
Japandroids - Post-Nothing
Cymbals Eat Guitars - Why There Are Mountains
Grizzly Bear - Veckatimest (This album has one of the best opening few tracks I've heard in a while.)

I don't know if I just haven't listened to many good things this year but the only albums I'm really loving (and by that I mean at least one listen per day) are Sholi's debut and the These Estates EP.

Seriously. Both of those are absolutely terrific. Good on you Johnny!

I think the album that's made me want to be 16 and thinking that music is the most important thing in the world ever again so far this year is "Hey Everyone" by Dananananaykroyd. It's a collision of so much stuff all thrown together in such an amazingly energetic and downright fun way I can't help but want to dance like a big idiot to it every time I hear it, even though I haven't been a teenager for the best part of a decade now. Like Los Campesinos, they're almost so fashionable it hurts, but also like Los Campesinos they're also so fucking good with it I can't hold their stupid modern hair and skinny jeans and baggy 80s t-shirts against them.

I've only had a chance to listen to it once, but I really enjoyed Sleepdrunk Season by Hjaltalín. Sure, it's probably hopelessly derivative of other Icelandic bands (particularly Múm), but it's really well done with some interesting and unusual instrumentation. I've only listened to it through speakers so far, but I bet it sounds gorgeous through headphones.

LOVED them at a local festival a few weeks ago.

Going by the promo blurb I was expecting Efterklang playing indie pop/twee, which wasn't too far off the mark. Hjaltalín also have 7 or 8 people on stage playing all sorts of instruments with some odd choices like the bassoon. And while their usual fare is a bit more subdued then Efterklang's they can play the grandiose as well.

Oh also, again I've only listened to it once (I've done a bejiggerload of C.D. shopping the last week) but I really loved the new Casiotone For the Painfully Alone album. The actual album of new songs that's just come out, not the rarities compilation or the soundtrack C.D. that came out earlier in the year. Owen Ashworth seems to have strengthened his story-telling even more so than on Etiquette (which I think is a superb album) and increased the scope of his writing, too. Great stuff!

So, Agalloch should have an album out this year. They said that they were working on it, and should be recording once they got back from their spring tour. That ended in march, so it should be in progress now.

of course, in case it doesn't, none of you know where I live, so I should be good.

I actually enjoyed Thursday's "Common Existence" a hell of a lot more than I expected to. I loved Full Collapse and then pretty much ignored everything that came after it, and now I think that Common Existence is way better than anything they've ever done.

Also - my list of records I have purchased so far:

William Elliot Whitmore - Animals In The Dark
Dalek - Gutter Tactics
Buried Inside - Spoils Of Failure
Tombs - Winter Hours
Thursday - Common Existence

The new Isis should be pretty rad, Converge has a new one coming out, B Dolan is putting out an all hip-hop record, and freaking Coalesce!!! Holy shit yes!

Things I'm looking forward to:

King Midas Sound  - the 12" from last year was absolutely fantastic, admittedly at least in part by having Dabrye and Flying Lotus remixing...

David Sylvian - this time he's collabing with members of AMM.  Should be insane.

The new Clues album is superbly good. One of the most frantic, fun, exuberant albums I've heard in a while. Clues is a bunch of Canadian musicians including that guy Brendan who used to be in Arcade Fire and Alden Ginger aka one of the singers from The Unicorns. I was fortunate enough to book them on their first show of their first actual tour outside on Montreal and they're really great people and put on an amazing live show. Seriously, it was one of the best I saw last year. Anyway, their new album is brilliant and they're on tour so go see them!

I really really like Passion Pit - Manners

Oh yeah. Definitely.


I just downloaded a leak of the new Black Moth Super Rainbow, "Eating Us". Hoping it's good, but I won't get a chance to listen to listen to it until tonight. FINGERS CROSSED.

ETA: going through as much as I can at the bus station. So far, so awesome.

Wait so you're letting something that happened 10 years ago ruin your quality of life? What are you, America? :psyduck:

I will definitely have to agree that Travels With Myself and Another has been the best thing I've heard so far this year. I'm really looking forward to Hockey's debut album Mind Chaos. If you haven't heard these guys, check them out now.
