My what seems to be annual list as in one a year

There was freeleech and I picked up either groups I've always wanted to listen to and had bookmarked or albums to fill the discographies I'm currently listening.
1The Orb
Baghdad Batteries (Orbsessions Vol. III)

It's the Orb, it needs no explanation.
2Sharon Van Etten
Because I Was In Love

I considered her last album the album of the year. This is coming from someone who needs to be in the folk mood, yet her Are We There? resonated with striking emotional maturity, it was hard not to keep coming back.
Crooked Timber

They're hit and miss. They are an extremely straight-up alternative band that straddles the line of punk aesthetics. When they hit though, it's great. Their cynicism is matched by few.
4Torae and Marco Polo
Double Barrel

I really think Marco Polo's production values are undervalued.
5The Black Dog
Further Vexations

The Black Dog or Black Dog Productions as they were once called, is an electronic outfit that consistently put out fantastic idm/ambient records through the 90s and present. If you're into Warp-era style then they're your ticket.
6Lee Gamble
Join Extensions

Someone I've been meaning to check out.
7Rx Bandits

My feelings are indifferent, as I thought Gemini, Her Majesty was OK. But I'm in no way a huge ska

No need to comment why.
9Simon Scott

Drummer of Slowdive, was recommended. And I fucking love Slowdive. If you get to see them live, do it. They're still can perform and wonderfully I might add.
10Zola Jesus
New Amsterdam

This is before her amazing Valusia EP, the one that introduced me to her work. Taiga was such a letdown though, so disappointing that her experimentation shifted toward more straightforward electro pop.
11The Horrors
Primary Colours

Post-punk revival or post-punk? Regardless, it's done well and without the cliches of most acts that attempt to imitate its heyday.
12Real Estate
Real Estate

I didn't like their last album released last year. I suppose, didn't like would be an overstatement, but it didn't connect with me as it did with so many.
Full Circle

He's constantly talked about around the circles I run with. I've just never sat down and listened to his material.
14Liquid Stranger
The Intergalactic Slapstick

It's dubstep and downtempo done well on Invisible Conquest. He's considered brostep fuck hopefully he doesn't go all fucking trash as I progress through his work.
Three EPs

IF you do not know this man, then fucking get to know him because he's supremely masterful at what he does.
