This new Pusha T mixtape goes hard. I've got no idea why an actual former coke dealer like Pusha is working with that fat, lying piece of shit Rick Ross though.
Um, as far as that relaxing indie stuff, I sometimes listen to Toro Y Moi whenever my friend puts it on. That shit's cool, but ah, I'll just stick with Chemical Brothers. Maybe some Thievery Corporation. Its not like I go and find that stuff, but that shit's alright.
@Everyones_A_Critic: That Pusha T goes hard! I did listen to Wrath of Caine, and shit was great! I'll still go back to Fear of God every once in a while.
@RonnytheBear: Converge has a new album? I need to try that.
Helloween's new album "Straight Out of Hell" I'm not really sure what to think about this one, I like the first and last few songs, but the middle kind of drags for me.
Also Voivod's "Target Earth" which I like a lot more. This is actually my first Voivod album, they've been one of those bands I've been meaning to check out for years now and their new album just came out and it was cheap, so I felt it was time to take the plunge and I'm glad I did.
Big Business is one of my favorite bands to come out of the late 2000. It's hard to explain how a band can be so epicly heavy, only hearing them can do justice.
Here's one of my favorite songs by them.
In a completely different vein, I am also really digging The Joy Formidable's new album "Wolf's Law"..........any rock group that has a female singer that uses her voice in interesting ways always gets a listen in my book, and the band is extremely tight.
I have also been listening to Frank Zappa's "Apostrophe" and "Over-Nite Sensation".....which are timeless classics in my eyes (ears?).
There's this cool indie thing called Tanlines: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0cdnvOoL1VA&feature=share&list=UUfIBo0eCZMykG27FpCeYI6g
I never try very hard to find that kind of stuff, but I'm happty I found this. Its wonderful.
New Tegan and Sara came out on Tuesday. It's pretty solid.
I was disappointed with it, but not surprised that I was disappointed. They've been transitioning away from their roots into mainstream pop stuff that doesn't do anything for me, starting with Sainthood. I doubt they'll ever put out anything that I like better than The Con. So it might not even necessarily be a quality issue, they just aren't for me anymore. But I can always spin their old records whenever I want :)
Personally, I've been listening to the new album from The Night Marchers, Allez Allez, quite a bit. They are the newest band from John Reis, who has been in Sultans, Hot Snakes, Rocket from the Crypt, among others. They just write some fun rock and/or roll songs, which is I think is exemplified by this track pretty well:
My top ten for 2012, in no particular order:
Reign of Terror - Sleigh Bells
Some Nights - Fun
The Idler Wheel... - Fiona Apple
Be the Void - Dr Dog
Gossamer - Passion Pit
Grace & Lies - Family Band
Synthetica - Metric
Theater is Evil - Amanda Palmer
Little Broken Hearts - Norah Jones
My Head is an Animal - Of Monsters and Men
If you don't hate what you do know on the list too very much, maybe try some of the things that you don't know. Your mileage may vary.
MC Eiht's "Keep It Hood" EP. I don't listen to a lot of new music (or rap at all) but I bought this. Gotta support Eiht, he is one of the few guys from my favourite era of gangster rap (the early 90s) that still does this properly. It isn't super deep but the whole EP is great driving music. Really nice production. "Bigg" is probably my favourite but "Make Me Some Mo" is also quite good.
Been listening to a lot of Foal's "Holy Fire" lately. It strikes me as the high point of their maturation as artists with "Providence" and "Late Night" as some of the best tracks. Also started listening to Iceage's "Your're Nothing" and it seems good so far.
Can't wait for the new Phoenix album though.
Making my "The All-Playlist" as I repeat music from the Witness and Game of Thrones trailers. The only forthcoming album I'm waiting for is Woodkid - The Golden Age so when it comes out I'll be listening to that.
Pre-emptive posting. Taking care of the things that really matter, I am.
uh... tegan and sara but I've never listened to them before so thus have no predetermined preference, and it's pretty good I guess?
Also, the new Cult of Luna is out... I have yet to listen to it however! I did listen to one of the songs and it was great so I have no doubt this one is choice as well (eternal kingdom is probably one of my favorite metal albums ever).
so lately i've been checking out...
iamamiwhoami - kin (eccentric swedish pop- similar to fever ray) here's a sample
atoms for peace - amok (that new supergroup with nigel godrich, thom yorke and flea) here's a sample
and that new single from the knife. because IT'S THE KNIFE!
This is great. That most recent Gaslight Anthem album is really good, and that Tegan and Sara album is hellof good. A$AP, Alt-J, Death Grips, music, sounds, waves, listen, GO!
ha- your comment just reminded me they have a new record coming soon. and yeah- i wasn't sold on that new gaslight from the beginning, but it's grown on me a great deal.
Hm, the newest album I'm listening to at the moment is Aesop Rocks Skelethon, which came out mid 2012. Still one of my favorite albums from last year!
EDIT: I guess P.O.S.' newest album came out more recently, but it's been some time since I actually gave that one a spin.
Aw shit, son. I'm finishing Justin Timberlake's album, 20/20. Dope. MySpace: Justin Timberlake: The 20/20 Experience

Jae Millz,' Dead Presidents 2. Jae Millz - Dead Presidents 2

Device ( even though I only got one song from the prepurchase)
Stone Sour House of Gold & Bones ( disappointing )
Nonpoint - Nonpoint This is just a fucking awesome album
Red Light King
Slash featuring Myles Kennedy ( that man can flat out sing)
