When Deviant Points His Finger At You

I'm not quite sure why a lot of people have been putting up their "best of 2011 so far" lists when we're not even at the halfway mark yet. What surprises me even more is the majority of terrible albums that make up these lists. Below are 30 releases from this year that you need to hear
1Swarms
Old Raves End


Dubstep meets Ambient meets Post Rock http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FbOtO4Bx1uM
2Amon Tobin
ISAM


The most consistent trip hop in the game is back and this is one of his best yet. Plus the artwork is a bunch of insects fighting in the remains of a lion's skull....... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vz6xaTol75A
3 Kryptic Minds
Can't Sleep


it's here and it's awesome. Totally improves upon their debut in every way possible http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WV1LZeSBZXw
4Instra:mental
Resolution 653


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NmNTm3lMikA
5Sorrow [UK]
Existence


For anyone who checked out my review for Streams by Submerse here's the next one to get excited over http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q7XOkyiTaEg

7Deafheaven
Roads To Judah
8Ulver
War Of The Roses

No Devolucion


Don't know who the bright spark was that thought adding this to the database with accents and all would be a good idea
102562
Fever


No intro really, click the album, read the review, sample the links and then hang the dj
11Burial
Street Halo


Again......
12FaltyDL
You Stand Uncertain


The same as #10
13CunninLynguists
Oneirology
14The Weeknd
House Of Balloons
15Jamie Woon

16Raekwon
Shaolin vs. Wu-Tang


Bulldog doesn't like this so you know its gotta be good
17Scale The Summit
The Collective
18 Gil Scott-Heron and Jamie XX
We're New Here


According to bob this is pseudo dubstep
19Radiohead
The King Of Limbs


Really dev, really?
20Tim Hecker
Ravedeath, 1972


Shit's good, like Ambient mecca
21Mogwai
Hardcore Will Never Die, But You Will


Fuck yeah Mogwai
22Ghostpoet
Peanut Butter Blues and Melancholy Jam


If anyone else has heard this please speak up, because I get the feeling this will be really divisive
23James Blake
James Blake


Obvious, nothing to see here
24The Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble
From the Stairwell


Spookah
25Ulcerate
The Destroyers Of All


These guys are no Rush but they get the job done
26Stendeck
Scintilla


little bit sad how few ratings this has
27Joy Orbison
Wade In/Jels


two tracks and still better than what you listen to
28Battles
Gloss Drop


Not as good as Mirrored but still great
29Explosions In The Sky
Take Care, Take Care, Take Care
30Kode9 and the Spaceape
Black Sun


So this isn't actually out yet (pre orders are up though) but this should be amazing. Burial's boss finally releases another album, and this time Flylo's on it
