Potsy's 2014 So Far

Haven't listened to a tonne yet since i'm busy catching up on last years stuff still but here are things that I've checked (for better or for worse). No order.
1Chad Vangaalen
Shrink Dust

4/5, dude is always amazing, Canada pride
2Trophy Scars
Holy Vacants

4.5/5, first Trophy Scars i've enjoyed
3The Afghan Whigs
Do to the Beast

4.5/5, comeback of the year. a better comback than Swans or Godspeed You, thats for sure.
4Beats Antique
A Thousand Faces - Act 2

3.5/5, some sweet moments but these guys really need to ditch the dub influence shit going on and go back to pure gypsy swag, they've been getting more and more prone to being borderline cheesy over the years
5Timber Timbre
Hot Dreams

4/5, a good album in its own rights but severely lacking in the atmospheric qualities that makes Timber Timbre Timber Timbre. If you are looking for stuff like their previous albums you might wanna skip this
6Mobb Deep
The Infamous Mobb Deep

4/5, disc one of new material is hit or miss but has some great tracks. disc 2 is all unreleased material from the Infamous days and is so incredible that it brings this up to a 4. if this was just disc 2 alone it would be a 4.5
Look Like You Love It

4/5, she's really hot
8La Dispute
Rooms of the House

3/5, more severely inoffensive tunes that really aren't nearly as bad OR good as any of you think. pretty straight up.
My Krazy Life

1.5/5, worst 'hip-hop' i've heard all year. Shitty boring cliche beats and such unintelligent lyricism it would insult your dog (and dogs are fucking dumb). disgrace to hip-hop, not that this guy is alone in destroying everything good about the genre these days. Its actually embarrassing to even call this hip-hop. Horrible, horrible, worst album of the year that i've heard so far.

3.5/5, serengeti borders on ruining this many times across the album and sufjan is just kind of there making things a little bit overly bright and a little too weird/off to really get your foot tapping but im a huge son lux fanboy and he saves the album from being a miss
All My Angles are Right

3.5/5, good hip-hop

3.5/5 really good captain doolittle work
13Aloe Blacc
Lift Your Spirit

3/5, very disappointing compared to the last album

3/5, 2 track ep, one song is complete shit and the other is pretty sweet
No Mythologies to Follow

4/5, chicks definitely inspired by all that iamamiwhoami and other swedish electronicy pop bullshit, pretty cool
Lost Forever // Lost Together

2.5/5, as painfully average as expected
17Johnny Foreigner
You Can Do Better

18King Green
The Introduction Tapes

3.5/5, cool ambience
19Son Lux
Alternate Worlds

4.5/5 big big son lux fanboy

21Ava Luna
Electric Balloon

4/5, really recommend this one for sput. here's my sound off "Don't be off-put by the opening track. I'm pretty sure its a satire anyway... it sets the album off on a... unpredictable note. The only queue that lets you know that this extremely amateurish sounding track is a gag is the lyrics. "I've never been so put off in all my life!" almost mocking the spastic teenage garage rock sounds. Only after the album kicks in on the second track does this intro make sense of itself... when you are treated to some of the most original sounding modern soul folk rock fusion bullshit you've heard in years HOLY BALLS TO THE FUCKIN WALL"

5/5 electronic (trip hop) album of the year so far
23The Souljazz Orchestra
Inner Fire

5/5, gypsy swag album of the year so far
Morning Phase

3.5/5, easy listening
25Wild Beasts
Present Tense

4.5/5 another amazing album from wild beasts, although i wish they'd go back to being as weird as they were on Two Dancers
Estoile Naiant

27 Iglooghost

4.5/5, best flying lotus album that isnt by flying lotus of the year. also kid is like 16 or some shit
3 Seashells

4/5, best hip hop by a white rapper ive heard all year. love it or hate it material. can be caught roling with das racist
2918 Carat Affair
Adventures in Schizophrenia


4/5, not as good/consistent as the debut but got some real bangers
31The Doppelgangaz
Peace Kehd

4/5, doppelgang never fails
All love's Legal

4/5, blatant the knife (shaking the habitual) worship to the point that its practically plagiarism (read appropriation) but its still cool
33Arcade (IT)
Contrincante VIP

4/5, great house from the great squeltch n hop label
34Rome Fortune
Beautiful Pimp II

4/5, horrible horrible lyrics, great beats, cloudy flow. i recommend this to all you guys because its very clear that you people have absolutely no standards when it comes to lyrics in hip hop plus u also seem to have absolutely no ear for good beats at all whatsoever so here is a compromise! cloudy trappy fusion bullshit that actually has decent production but you guys can still have your horrible incompetent lyrics! you're welcome.
35Helms Alee
Sleepwalking Sailors

4/5, always great stuff from these seattle total hoes (and one bro). great people ive chilled with them and they are super nice
36Cashmere Cat
Wedding Bells


38Aziza Brahim

5/5, the other current gypsy swag aoty so far
39Hikari Todo
The Joys In Not Knowing

40Volcanic Queen
Faith In Desire

4/5, favourite sput release this year
41Be Forest

4.5/5, hipster trash album of the year so far
42Broken Bells
After the Disco


44Dry Satire

3/5, its not shit and its not amazing, another album that struggles with polarized opinions that are ultimately both wrong
45Cities Aviv
Come To Life

4/5, sorry guys you wouldnt like this, it has really amazing production and thoughtful lyrics and great flow. the beats are far to intricate and he doesnt say 'n*gger',and 'f*ggot' every second word. I suggest you guys let this one pass and go look for someone with a far smaller vocabulary and a brain the size of a peanut like YG.

4/5 great ep

4.5/5 more of the best flylo material that isnt flylo
48Sally Block
Halfway to Midnight

49Against Me!
Transgender Dysphoria Blues

3.5/5, great concept makes up for inconsistency in song quality. never liked this band but got a big ol respect boner for these guys now that whats his tits is a whats her tits
50Boddika and Joy Orbuson
More Maim/In Here

51Arve Henriksen
Cosmic Creation

4.5/5, another one sput would prob get a good kick out of
52Lee Bannon

53All the Empires of the World

54Sub Luna City
City Rivims Mk 1

4.5/5, KING KRULE produced uk hip-hop crew, really cool innovative stuff. but don't waste your time, its another one of those albums with thoughtful non retard status lyricism and beats that don't sound like blackzilla smacking his cock on a trampoline in 4/4


3.5/5, one of my good buddies in vancouver
57Bishop Nehru
You Stressin'
