25 Reasons Why Sputnik Kicks Ass

First post/list, I've been lurking on sputnik for close to a year now so i figured it was time to actually join. List is digs i probly would've never heard of without this site, any recs would be appreciated.
1Rooftops
A Forest Of Polarity


Haven't heard math rock this good since Tera Melos' self-titled
2Lye By Mistake
Fea Jur


Proggy instrumental metal with some cool jazz interludes
3Animal Collective
Feels


so easy to get lost in
4Miles Davis
Dark Magus


Dark, heavy and chaotic, my favorite from his electric period
5 Suis La Lune
Heir


Some of the most uplifting emo i've ever heard
6The Avalanches
Since I Left You


You're crazy as a coconut!
7 Kendrick Lamar
Section.80


Great technique, good lyrics and some killer beats
8Portrait
Discography


This>A Retrospective
9The Sawtooth Grin
Cuddlemonster


Giving parents migraines since '04
10Kidcrash
Jokes


recently rediscovered how amazing this is
11Sleepmakeswaves
...And So We Destroyed Everything


Can actually hold my attention, as opposed to most post-rock
12James Blake
James Blake


Took me awhile to get into, but once it clicked i couldn't stop listening
13House Boat
The Thorns Of Life


so. fucking. catchy. sidenote: never tell a girl she looks like Jello Biafra
14Clams Casino
Rainforest


Smoke sesh album #1
15Bohren & Der Club Of Gore
Sunset Mission


Super atmospheric, sparse jazz
16Faraquet
The View From This Tower


angular, mathy indie. Is it just me or does the vocalist sound just like Bayside's on A Study In Complacency?
17BADBADNOTGOOD
BBNG


Smoke sesh album #2
18Passafire
Submersible


Great Reggae band, really nice guys too
19Cloudkicker
Beacons


Just got this, it's so fucking good. Where should i go from this, The Discovery or Let Yourself Be Huge?
20Laura Stevenson & The Cans
Sit Resist


i wouldn't have ever given this a chance if it wasn't on everyone and their mother's best of '11 lists, but i'm sure glad i did. Some of the best indie/americana/whatever i've heard in years
21Shook Ones
The Unquotable A.M.H.


Criminally underrated melodic hardcore. Saw these guys with Touche Amore and The Menzingers last year and they stole the show
22Snowing
Fuck Your Emotional Bullshit


The album that single-handedly got me hooked on twinkly guitar emo
23Elliott Smith
Roman Candle


imo slightly better than either/or, which is fantastic
24Crash Of Rhinos
Distal


I love the combination of gang vocals, crisp drumming and great one-liners. i need more stuff like this
25A Bunny's Caravan
Draining Puddles, Retrieving Treasures


One of the few albums where i can honestly saw every song is damn near perfect. If you have even a remote interest in indie/emo/post-rock check this out now
