2013: What You've Missed

Different from FourthReich's list cuz of the "'ve" but it still has Humanfly in it r*hint* *hint* rThese are all brilliant albums that most of you haven't heard rof because you should dig deeper.
Awesome Science

4.4/5 - Definitely an AOTY for prog, sludge and stoner. Incredible virtuosity and riffage.
2American Wolf

4.5/5 - Indie rock with a unique sound and some post-rock leanings. These guys are going far.
3Bruce Soord with Jonas Renkse
Wisdom of Crowds

4.3/5 - Jonas of KATATONIA (you love these guys Sputnik) and Bruce of The Pineapple Thief make an album merging prog and trip hop into something truly captivating. Both of their distinctive styles are at their best here.
4The Darcys

4.2/5 - Innovative/experimental indie rock that retains that catchiness at the same time, easily up there with Typhoon, could surpass it Some tracks from it here: warring
The 5th Sun

4.1/5 - Stoner rock from one of today's finest bands that veers into very heavy post-rock at times with some awesome keys. The first track:
Frozen Galaxies

4.1/5 - Stoner/space rock from a brilliant up-and-coming band. Some definite Hawkwind in here, great sax and a killer 24-minute title track.
Still Life With Eggplant

4.1/5 - Prog from one of Norway's longest running and most consistently excellent bands. Only a year after their possible magnum opus, they bring us something almost as awesome.
The Greatest Show On Earth

4/5 - Prog, almost dropping their heavy Pink Floyd influence and creating an album that often soars high above their previous work. activeAlbum=00552%20-%20Airbag%20- %20The%20Greatest%20Show%20On%20Earth
9The Grand Astoria
Punkadelia Supreme

4/5 - Stoner rock with punk vocal leanings, like a more fun Kylesa. This is their 4th LP and by now they have perfected creating awesome tunes with mind-melting riffs.
The Man Left in Space

4/5 - Prog with a concept (I don't really need to explain it) from one man, with Spock's Beard's drummer among others guesting. An overwhelmingly enjoyable experience.
Echo Street

3.7/5 - Prog with a space-rock atmosphere, has nothing on their previous album The Octopus, which is one of the greatest prog albums of the 21st Century but shows some good progression into perfected musicianship.
Sleep Furiously

Prog reminiscent of King Crimson mixed with At the Drive-In. An incredible album that has completely passed under the radar, they've got a really awesome style. Just try Wheezyboy for proof.
Dark Matters

Post-prog, an overlooked gem with some Pure Reason Revolution and OSI in there, very beautiful and majestic. For FREE download!
14Oak (NOR)

Prog/alt-rock with some folkiness, in a similar vain to Worldengine. Equally as good and equally as forgotten. Only streaming on Spotify currently: Album teaser here:
15Samsara Blues Experiment
Waiting For the Flood

Stoner rock kings release an album that easily stands up to their classic debut, only 4 tracks in 50 minutes. What more could you want?

Prog with post-rock elements, possibly the band's best yet. Incredibly beautiful and moving yet completely ignored. v=HjXKDM5wqx4&list=PLz9CToDfmshEz1RMWu4gzxnst0tpWn26J
17Sleepers Awake

Progressive metal that is NOT cheesy or derivative! Holy crap! Vocalist has a great voice and the band are tight as hell.

Shoegaze/stoner/prog/psychedelic mix with female vocals. Very interesting sound, and it'll satisfy your needs for all those genres, don't miss it.
19Brother Dege
How To Kill A Horse

Blues rock from the prodigy and best kept secret of Louisiana, Mr. Dege Legg. Accessible but beautifully crafted, as all his work is. Check Santeria if you like this, they're incredible. Only on Spotify: Title track:
20Projected Twin
Earth Vs World

Prog/alt-rock from the overlooked Australian one-man-band. Not quite as good as the debut but still a great listen none the less.
21Wo Fat
The Black Code

Stoner rock from everybody's favourite Texan madmen. Definitely their best yet and a possible 4.5. Those three 10 min tracks are insane.
22Sanguine Hum
The Weight Of the World

Neo-prog that isn't half-bad. Has some modern elements to give them their own sound, this band'll be in your face in a few years. Spotify: Title track on YouTube:
23Sweatson Klank
You, Me, Temporary

Dubstep/electronica/hip hop - These are a completely different genres for me, but I really enjoyed this album. A concept of sorts, really chiiiill man.
24Depth Connection
Different Waves

Sputniker Twitchtly leaves Solterra - :'( - and creates an EDM/chillwave EP with some guitar in there to make me happy. As always, too good for a user project.
25Electric Six

Rock/punk. This band are so much more than just Gay Bar. While this isn't their best (Zodiac is, go check it, it's awesome) there's nothing not to love here if you want a good time.
