This List Contains No Radiohead

digzzzzzzzzzzz
1Radiohead
The King Of Limbs


OK I lied, this list contains trace amounts of Radiohead. The album rules by the way, although I've still got my fingers crossed that they're adding some tracks.
2Protest The Hero
Scurrilous


PTH have always been one of my favourite bands, but I still understand some of the hate they get; I can see why someone wouldn't like them. With the announcement of the new album, I was under the impression that this was when they would finally become "lolbad" but instead their songwriting is maturing and the studio wizardry is damn impressive (for a PTH album)
3Glassjaw
Coloring Book


These fist three digs have me feeling like such a sputnik sheep right now but I mean fuck. I wanted to listen to this and be all "3/5, you guys are crazy" buy my God this album (EP, whatever) slays for days. DAYS
4NAS
Illmatic


Whose world is this?
5Pariah [UK]
Safehouses


Getting more into some dubstep.
6Love American
Love American


Meet Love American: a "sputnik" band that isn't a huge pile of shit.
7Cold War Kids
Mine Is Yours


I've been on a dl'ing spree, attempting to familiarize myself with some of the names at Sasquatch 2011 that I've not heard. This album is great, not flooring but good; a nice listen. I mean, it's only a 3.5, but there's another reason it's here. Whenever I hear Vampire Weekend, I can't help but be instantly transported back to Sasquatch 2010 in my head. "Contra" is just so summery, it went so well with Sasquatch. Well, this album, to me, sounds like Sasquatch too, even though I haven't seen them there yet. I can already picture all the sexy hipster chicks groovin to these tunes, wacked out on MDMA. Fuck man, I can't wait.
8A Tribe Called Quest
The Low End Theory


It took me waaaaay to long to finally check this out
9The Tallest Man On Earth
The Wild Hunt


I couldn't stand this guy when I first heard him. Now, The Wild Hunt has a place on my Top 10 albums of 2010. It's amazing how full of a sound he can get with just his voice and an acoustic guitar.
10Defeater
Dear Father


I refuse to listen to the leak of the new album until my vinyl arrives. Ahhh this is painful, why am I doing this to myself? At least the Protest The Hero album leaked too, and I don't care about waiting for the actual release for that one, although I'll probably pick up the CD so I can pump that shit in the car and fuck with all the rednecks in my town.
11Sunny Day Real Estate
Diary


My newest 5. One of the great influential emo records of the 90s.
12Pg. 99
Document #8


One of the great influential hardcore emo records of the 00s
13Mobb Deep
The Infamous


Such nice beats
14iTAL tEK
Cyclical


More dub. Jash just got this on vinyl and we had a listen last night. Good stuff, really chill.
15The Weakerthans
Live At Burton Cummings Theatre


These guys make me proud to be a Canadian. I see Jim Bryson + The Weakerthan Band soon. It's no The Weakerthans show, but it's the next best thing I guess. Man, they really need to tour outside Manitoba, they haven't played a show out West in ages.
16Robyn
Body Talk


Pretty shallow electro pop, but fun to listen to.
17Ratatat
LP4


I still need to check out "Classics" but I thought this was a really good album.
18Foo Figthers
The Colour And The Shape


I can't wait to see these guys live at Sasquatch. Oh man that show is going to be NUTS
19Godspeed You! Black Emperor
Slow Riot For New Zero Kanada


After seeing them close with BBF3, I've decided that it is now my favourite song of all time. Just too brilliant for words. Sorry, Shine On You Crazy Diamond
20Godspeed You! Black Emperor
Lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas...


So, for as long as I can remember, for every "favourite albums" list I've ever made, Wish You Were Here was always number 1 and I thought it always would be. Well, this just bumped it down. Sorry Pink Floyd, but this album is honestly perfect. I'll make a list later for the official changing of the guard though, don't worry.
