One of my favorite modern bands, Black Mountain, is releasing a new album called Wilderness Heart in September. The new single, "Old Fangs", is free on this website: http://jagjaguwar.com/blackmountain/

great songs, thanks for sharing :)

I didn't leave a comment on the third one, because I'm no big Pink Floyd fan or expert, but I'm looking forward for opinions either here or there :shades: :D

(PS the last.fm and facebook links on the last two vids aren't working )

Mine:

1. Romance Is Boring - Los Campesinos!

2. Treats - Sleigh Bells

3. The Courage of Others - Midlake

4. Beat The Devil's Tattoo - Black Rebel Motorcycle Club

5. Heaven Is Whenever - The Hold Steady

Honestly, this year hasn't been that great imo. However, as the only one on your list that I've heard is Forgiveness Rock Record, I suppose I have some digging to do.

I think I posted a Delorean song on the first page of this thread, that one is definitely worth checking out. Flying Lotus I would also highly reccomend. It's an experimental hip hop/electronic album with the spirit (although not always the sound) of the more avant-garde leaning jazz of the 70s. You couldn't really call it "free jazz" or something, but it was definitely influenced by the likes of Sun Ra. Good stuff! And Crystal Castles is halloween on record.

Good call on the Sleigh Bells album, one of the loudest albums I've heard in a long time.

I think this has been a pretty awesome year so far. Aside from the ones I mentioned, I've also really enjoyed the albums from Guilty Simpson, Apples in Stereo, Fang Island, Gorillaz, Jay Electronica, Mux Mool, and Surfer Blood. I still have a lot to check out too.
