Albums I've been digging on.
|1||At The Drive-In|
What is so great about it, is that it sounds nothing like Relationship of Command and yet still sounds amazing. Kind of has a more old-school post-hardcore style.
Sick drumming.....experimental-post-math-stuff at it's finest.
Usually the phrases heavy sludge and beauty don't appear as one in my mind, but this is an exception. Best track is probably "farewell"
One of the best and earliest uses of awesome, analog modular synths and sequencers. These guys were diggin the space and put out some atmospheric early trance. Makes me nostalgic for wanting a moog.
Sweet record. Can't really describe it's awesomness, except that it has some trippy and yet poppy tunes from Bradford Cox. It's about time people start offering him to do film soundtracks.
What is the deal with French Electronic bands? Whatever, they rule. And this band is no exception. M83 manages to shove John Hughes, the 80s, and synth-poppy shoegaze all into one record. And it is sex.
Feed The Animals
One of the few remix albums I like that doesn't constantly make me think remix=party music. I mean yes this music is the greatest for parties, but I genuinely enjoy listening to this shit. Girl Talk managed to rape intellectual property laws and put out a sweet ass record simultaneously. Oh and the ending of Play Your Part pt. 2? Epic man.
|8||Godspeed You! Black Emperor|
Lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas To
Getting tired of deions. Whatever. Album rules. Read my soundoff. I consider it the post-rock equivalent to "In A Silent Way" by Miles Davis. Schweet shit. Rules.
|9||The Velvet Underground|
The Velvet Underground and Nico
This album is proof that garage bands can make truly classic records. Deserves all of it's hype. I love the feel of each song and their sort of roughness. And the Viola? Good move John Cale. Good move.
Metal Machine Music
FUCK YOU. I ENJOY THIS ALBUM.
