Ian made a not-so-good thread, so I figured we could balance it out.

Just post some albums you've been really enjoying recently. They don't have to be your ultimate list of perfect albums, or albums from 2013, or anything like that. Just music you've been listening to the past few weeks that you have enjoyed. Perhaps a little background on the albums would help keep it from a "post lists" individual circle-jerk too. Try to spoiler images so the thread isn't a mess to go through.

I'll start I guess.




Album is tame impala crossed with shoegaze-y french dream pop. Kevin Parker & his french girlfriend or whatever. It's pretty cool, manages to avoid monotony and keep you engaged. Good chill vibes. Been giving it a listen a day since I found it and enjoy it every time.





Just Broken Social Scene for people who have listened to way too much Broken Social Scene pretty much. Toned down more & obviously much more Kevin Drew (since it's pretty much a solo album as played by Broken Social Scene), but I enjoy it. Good vibes & I'm sure what the sound will be like is pretty obvious. If it isn't, go listen to You Forgot It In People, Forgiveness Rock Record & their self titled.





My mom found a box of my old cd's from when I was a kid. Most of them were my brother's old cds that I shamelessly appropriated from him, this being one of them. Listened to it on the car ride home & had immense nostalgia. This forum is full of people who all like indie rock & pretending to be 90's kids, so I'm sure we've all listened to Pavement so I won't bother talking more.




Australian neo-psychedelic rock with shared parts in Tame Impala. Pretty much a jammier, more guitar heavy tame impala.



So yeah, post & stuff pls.

That's even more pretentious than Ian.

OT: AiC: Dirt.

Ian's thread is great now that it has nothing to do with what it was intended for

Alice in Chains - Self-titled and The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here: two completely different spins on the same band but they both work so well. The latter is the perfection of the band's more modern rock sound, the former being the fine aging of the band's trademark sludgy, almost hungover sounding grunge sound. So dark, so gloomy, so classic.

The Neighbourhood - I Love You: I'm not into much electronic alternative, but these guys came on XM a few weeks ago for me and their songs have been stuck in my head ever since. It's not bad, I dunno how much I'd recommend it though.

Red Line Chemistry - Tug of War: Basically the modern successors to Alice in Chains. Hopefully the torch will be passed to them one day, but not too soon cuz AiC.

Circa Survive - Violent Waves: I wore this one out when it came out, just starting to enjoy it again. Very dark but at the same time kind of has an underlying message of hope. I personally connected with all of the emotions and subject matter dealt with on the album, can't recommend it enough.

Tool - 10,000 Days: If you like rock music at all and haven't listened to this album, shame on you. It's a masterpiece.

this album

In addition to this, I've been digging:

Yeah Yeah Yeahs - Mosquito
Pretty Lights - A Color Map of the Sun
Capital Cities - Tidal Wave of Mystery (I think that's what it's called)
Sawano Hiroyuki - Attack on Titan/Guilty Crown OSTs
Toe - The Future is Now

No reasons, really. Too lazy to post links to all of them.

I only own Dirt in full, is it as good? When I listen to that I feel like I just injected a shitload of heroin and am slowly overdosing in a gutter with urine soaked pants (& im not sure if its my own urine). It's pretty enjoyable.

The Promise Ring, Mountain Goats, Andrew Jackson Jihad, Ryan Adams have been the last week or so.

Other than the usual Modest Mouse, Prince, Neil Young tandem I got going on.

Which one, the self-titled? It pretty much gives the same feeling but x100 because Layne Staley was actually dying of heroin addiction during the recording and all the songs were written around this fact. Seriously, try listening to Frogs and tell me you don't feel more tired and spaced out than before.

I don't think it's as good as Dirt but it's a close 2nd in my favorites. Give it a spin sometime, it's worth it.

I don't know why, but I've been listening to The Lonesome Crowded West a lot the last week. Just that album though. I went to listen to The Moon & Antarctica and just switched a few songs in because I wanted to listen to the other one more.

Tool - Aenima: Their best album in terms of production/overall sound imo. Great songs, great sound - perhaps my favourite recorded drum sound.

Steven Wilson - The raven that refused to sing (And other ghost stories): Engineered by Alan Parsons. Absolutely stunning feel and vibe to the album. Recommended to anyone who likes classic prog rock, and of course PT/SW fans.

Infected Mushroom - Converting Vegetarians (Other Side): Disc 2 of the album. Bit of an oddball, but some of the most experimental and 'mushroom-y' sounding electronic music I've ever heard. Unlike the majority of their work, this isn't psytrance (disc 1 is), and instead is much more experimental.
RIP Gooze

Yeah, I don't like their new stuff at all.

Actually, I've been really getting into all of the Alice in Chains albums. I've only really liked certain songs until now.

Understandable, it's two very different takes on the band

A great choice. They're great musicians who just knew how to write amazing songs. Take simple melody or riff, crank atmosphere up to 10.

been listening to a lot of Spock's Beard's new album Brief Nocturnes & Dreamless Sleep. Came out this year and it's easily my favourite post Neal Morse album by the beard, maybe even favourite Beard album. Also Bigelf's Hex and Cheat the Gallows albums have been on heavy rotation.

The first MM I listened to was Moon & Antarctica, but i've only listened to it like twice maybe in the last couple years just because Lonesome Crowded West and This is a Long Drive... are both so much better.

You should listen to Building Nothing Out of Something. It's basically just a compilation of unused tracks from the late 90s and it might be my favorite release of theirs.

Understanding that Layne Staley died of a drug addiction just enhances the experience. Maybe it's just me, but I can really feel every word and the corresponding music.

Meh, , I'm just really starting to appreciate them after only listening casually.

American Football - American Football

It's just sooooo good.

Prawn - Ships

It's also just soooo good. The horn line in Donald Domesky is the best thing ever.

Empire! Empire! (I Was a Lonely Estate) - What It Takes to Move Forward

The music I've been writing recently has been influence a lot by this record.

Olafur Arnalds - Living Room Songs

Really lovely stuff. This is my "chill out and bask in the feels" music.

The Reign of Kindo - Rhythm, Chord & Melody

Been listing to this a ton as I eagerly await their new album to drop. Definitely one of my top 10 favorite albums.

I love M&A a lot (and that song) but I don't like to listen to it in full for some reason.
