I was just wondering if you guys have enjoyed any new releases this summer. My top 5 are:

1. Nas- Life is Good

2. Fiona Apple- The Idler Wheel is Wiser than the Driver of the Screw, and Whipping Cords will Serve You More Than Ropes Will Ever Do

3. Rick Ross- God Forgives and I Don't

4. Dirty Projectors- Swing Lo Magellan

5. Frank Ocean- Channel Orange

Been listening to a lot of El-P's Cancer 4 Cure and Killer Mike's R.A.P. Music. Two awesome rap albums this year.

Fiona Apple and Baroness's albums are very good as well.

The fuck? 5 albums in a summer? I'd be lucky to find 2 albums in a year.

I would have picked Swing Lo Magellan as my top, and Channel Orange would wind up on my list. I also have strong interest in PSY's new album, the Fiona Apple album, the Norah Jones album, and the NaS album. I'll check out Killer Mike and Baroness as well.

Killer Mike's R.A.P Music and Aesop Rock's Skelethon are all I've been listening to. Gaslight Anthem is great from what I've heard.

Japandroids' Celebration Rock five times.

It is the perfect album for summer times. And all other times.

But if I have to pick four more, it's Fiona Apple, Passion Pit, Purity Ring, and Dirty Projectors.

Of the summer? So I guess Beach House and Cloud Nothings are off the table? Well, alright:

  1. Hop Along -- Get Disowned
  2. Japandroids -- Celebration Rock
  3. Dirty Projectors -- Swing Lo Magellan
  4. Foxygen -- Take the Kids off Broadway
  5. Passion Pit -- Gossamer

EDIT: I guess Get Disowned was May 5th, which isn't quite summer yet. The album itself isn't especially suited to summer, either. Add Walkmen's Heaven, in there, then. It's actually kind of Summer-y, as weird as it is for the band with an album entitled "Everyone Who Pretended to Like Me Is Gone")

I'll go off topic a bit by asking if there's anything recent that's funky or soulful, energetic, or something that sounds like Mikey over there (<=) could've come up with.

The Idler Wheel... - Fiona Apple

Reign of Terror - Sleigh Bells

Oceania - Smashing Pumpkins

Blunderbuss - Jack White

Some Nights - Fun.

Haven't had a chance to check out the new Passion Pit, but I did enjoy their first one.

Not lately, but if you like MJ and you're not already a fan, I HIGHLY suggest checking out some old Prince.

Dirty Mind, 1999, Purple Rain, Sign O the Times, Controversy, etc. Be warned that many of his other works are very hit or miss, IMO.

@SpaceInsomniac: I remember listening to some Prince and thinking that his stuff was very tame compared to MJ's. Maybe some other songs would be better, but I dunno. He didn't do it for me.

I love peeking in on these music threads. I am so out of the loop on music and all these bands you're naming just sounds like you're all making shit up.

I would say Bloom by Beach House... Does May count as summer?

Yellow and Green-Baroness

The Idler Wheel...-Fiona Apple

Swing Lo Magellan-Dirty Projectors

Confess-Twin Shadow

Haven't listened to Channel Orange yet but it sounds like it's the real deal given the reviews and the comments on this thread

Other then that, I usually a bit late on albums and such.

Wait, what? This came out already? The Formation Of Damnation was pretty shitty, so I'm not sure about this one.

You should check out Kreator's Phantom Antichrist, and Overkill's The Electric Age. Both are absolutely goddamn brilliant.
