Just Went To From A Classical Concert

My Music History professor plays for the Vancouver Island Symphony Orchestra and we get $5 rush tickets for being students so I went and dabbled in a type of music I know relatively little about. The concert was an exploration of the expansion of the Baroque form throughout Europe. It was pretty interesting, I think I'll continue to dabble. List is digs.
1Aesop Rock
Labor Days

"I did not invent the wheel, I was the crooked spoke adjacent"

I finally got this a couple days ago
The Last Resort

soooooo good
Dead Waves

I drummed for the first time in a little while today and I brushed away the
dust with the first four tracks of this album. Really fun to jam along to,
more people on sputnik need to get this (read Xeno's new review).
5Modern Life Is War
6Look What I Did
Atlas Drugged

I'll take some trip-hop recs if you've got them. I've heard the really obvious
stuff (Massive Attack and DJ Shadow). Mezzanine is probably my favourite
trip-hop so far if that helps.
8Cap'n Jazz
Shmap'n Shmazz

The influence of this record is unbelievable, I hear bits of Cap'n Jazz in
nearly every emo band since the mid 90s
9The Dismemberment Plan
Emergency & I

"The only thing worse than bad memories, is no memories at all. From the
age of 20 to 22 I had five friends; none of whose names I can recall." The
lyrics on this album really hit home for me.
10Ned Collette
Future Suture

I had to add this to the database. It was only the second time I had to do
that. I'll probably throw a review up for this eventually seeing as no one
else here has it rated.

I respect this guy's music so much more after seeing a video of him doing
his thing live (on pitchfrok tv I beleive)
12Clive Tanaka y Su Orquesta
Jet Set Siempre No. 1

Someone help Kirgasm hype this, I'm no good at that sort of thing.
13Daniel Bjarnason

they're probably not even comparable at all, I don't know jack shit about
classical, but as far as 2010 classical goes, this > Infra by Max Richter, and I
loved the shit out of that album. Seriously, check this album out it's so
fucking good.
14Jim Bryson and The Weakerthans
The Falcon Lake Incident

Going to see these guys live pretty soon. I wish The Weakerthans would
just go on a reunion tour instead of just playing shows in Manitoba.
15The State Lottery
When The Night Comes

Thank you to Mike (mallen24, EVedder) for making me get this. I love it.
16Gold Panda
Lucky Shiner

I've been digging this for like three months straight now. I'm pumped on
the tour. March 22, Vancouver, look out UHN TSS UHN TSS UHN TSS
17Sarah Fimm
Karma Phala

I wish this wasn't a compilation so that I could make a "best albums of
2010" list and put this in the top 20.
Messy, Isn't It?

As I look back on 2010, I've been coming back to this more and more. It
had no staying power with me at all when I first listened to it but now it's
getting multiple listens.
19Laura Stevenson and The Cans
Holy Ghost!

I don't like Bomb The Music Industry! Laura Stevenson plays keyboards
(and sings?) for them, but her solo stuff if much different. It's still very DIY
but very folky with a little bit of an indie edge. Her voice is just marvelous
as well. I wish this were much, much longer.
......that's what she said
