Diggage From Kenya

Well I've been in Kenya for over a month now and it's been far too long since I've posted a *cough* "list=digs" list. So, here's a massive list of what I've been listening to for the past month. Mainly the first 10 or so.
1Manchester Orchestra
I'm Like a Virgin Losing a Child


This stands for Simple Math, METN, and I'm Like a Virgin Losing a Child. Fuck me this band is amazing.
2La Dispute
Wildlife


5/5, obviously
3 Godspeed You! Black Emperor
Godspeed You! Black Emperor


I'm real happy for you La Dispute, and imma let you finish, but Godspeed made the best album of ALL TIME, OF ALL TIME.
4Zeds Dead
BBC Radio 1 Mini Mix


Needs more votes. It's only 10 minutes long and my favourite bass-drop in all the dubstep I've heard (so like all five mixes) is at like 6:30 check it out http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f2Udv0_VFHo
5The War on Drugs
Slave Ambient


sleepy time
6The National
Boxer


Stay inside till somebody finds us, do whatever the TV tells us.
7Pianos Become the Teeth
Old Pride

9Bear vs. Shark

13Clogs
Lullaby For Sue


Bryce Dessner from The National plays some pretty kickass post-rock
14TV on the Radio

It might be impractical to seek out a new romance. You won't know the actual if you never take the chance.
15Caribou

This grew on me like crazy. Hated it at first but I quite like it now.
16Soundtrack
Scott Pilgrim vs. The World


WE ARE SEX BOB-OMB AND WE'RE HERE TO MAKE YOU THINK ABOUT DEATH AND FEEL SAD AND STUFF

The intro track slays the rest of the album in my opinion
32The Boxer Rebellion

35Frightened Rabbit
The Midnight Organ Fight


It takes more than fucking someone to keep yourself warm
36Gold Panda
Companion


3.4 average pfffff come on now. This is almost as good as Lucky Shiner. kickass artwork too, one of the best of the year in my opinion.
37The Antlers
In the Attic of the Universe


Amazing band
38Wild Beasts
Smother


like Arcade Fire but with a vocalist who does even more drugs than Win Butler
39Big Boi

The master of the 4/5
42The Roots
How I Got Over


one of the "coolest" hip-hop groups around
43Kanye West
The College Dropout


I just started digesting the rest of his material because MBDTF was my AOTY for 2010. This album is awesome, I love the skits.
44A Winged Victory for the Sullen
A Winged Victory for the Sullen


Almost as good as Stars of the Lid
45 Les Discrets
Septembre Et Ses Dernières Pensées


I dl'd a bunch of that "blackgaze" shit cause this really cool girl recommended a bunch of albums to me and I thought I'd love it but nah, it's ok. This and that one Alcest album are (weak) 3.5s for me. Nice listen though.
46Emeralds
Does It Look Like I'm Here?


seriously read the thread for the review for this (it starts getting good with my comment on page 2). Eno straight loses his shit, hilarious stuff.
47Souls of Mischief
93 'til Infinity


Wax's song "2010 til Infinity" (which uses the beat from the title track on this album) introduced me to this group. Really cool hip-hop from the 1990s featuring Del the Funky Homosapien (among others)
48Wax
Scrublife


a rapper that got signed because of mass youtube hits, but he's actually good. the track "2010 til Infinity" rules, one of my favourite rap tracks.

slays for days. he's going to be touring with Drake apparently though. eww.
52Menomena
Mines


Go home, I'd like to
53Jeromes Dream
Completed 1997 - 2001


Some of the weirdest vocals I've heard from a screamo band. Still rules though.
54More Than Life
Love Let Me Go


AND I WONDER, HAVE YOU EVER SCREAMED MY NAME IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT?
55The Radio Dept.
Clinging to a Scheme


Pretty pissed I didn't catch their set at Sasquatch 2011. Love the album cover.
56House Boat
The Thorns of Life


the closer "Bug Out" fucking rules

Post-Nothing


Oh it's raining in Vancouver, but I don't give a fuck, cause I'm far from home tonight (so true for me right now)
59Wye Oak
Civilian


I thought this was boring at first but then I saw them (kill it) live and forced myself to revisit it. Great album.
60TOKiMONSTA
Midnight Menu


Dear Jash: I hate you for not catching her show in Victoria. Sincerely, Aids.

One of the cooler concept albums I've heard in a while.
62You and I
The Curtain Falls

"What genre is it?" - some guy "Umm, other?" - me
66How Do We Jump This High?
Funny/Not Funny


Every once in a while when I see Hep Kat post, I check out his dig. I am rarely disappointed. Pop-punk (obviously)
67Chuck Ragan
Covering Ground


Folk solo project from the frontman of Hot Water Music. Somewhat of a bluegrass vibe going on too, really awesome stuff.
68La Dispute
Untitled 7"


Don't believe your ears nor trust your mouth. I think that every single feeble doubt-soaked promise of trust had a mind to leave you out in the rain with your hands to the train tracks, pulling the ropes with your teeth. But you're too weak and you're too tired, child, lay down, I will tear every ghost from your dreams.
69Mouse On The Keys
An Anxious Object


Japan delivers once again.
70Laura Stevenson and the Cans
Sit Resist


Album of the motherfucking year
