Getting Back In The Swing

I haven't posted a list, scored an album, or posted a review in a long time. Time to right the ship. Let's start this off with some recent digs. I'll post a best of '11 as soon as I feel caught up (so much good stuff last year, really tough to get back to square one...)
1Last Chance to Reason
Level 2

This was a total surprise. Didn't know what to expect, but happy I gave it a whirl. Very BTBAM inspired, but has it's own flavor. Can't wait for their next release.
2John Zorn
Naked City

Finally picked this up. Going to spend the weekend sinking my teeth into this.
The Invisible Mountain

Obtained this on a whim. Great stuff if you enjoy gigantic heavy tunes.
4Fleet Foxes
Helplessness Blues

Who would have thought that this would stack up with their debut?
5Ha Ha Tonka
Novel Sounds of the Nouveau South

This album rules. I'm in total shock that their 2011 release, Death of a Decade, has ONE score (I haven't even put mine up yet). Such an underrated band with amazing talent. Imagine if the Black Keys jammed some mountain music. You have to give it a whirl if you even remotely enjoy some different rock stylings.

This is a perfectly paced record.
7Lords of the Trident
Death or Sandwich

Madison metal act. Can't believe I found them on here... read their profile for a giggle. They put on a pretty rad live show with fire breathing and over the top stage presence. Fun times to be had.
8The End

What's the word with these guys? I saw them live in '10, talked to a couple of the dudes from the band and they said they were hoping to release something early '11...

This guy is unreal. Can't wait to hear him on the new Loomis album.
10Titus Andronicus
The Airing of Grievances

Just snapped this up, too. If it's half the album The Monitor is, I'm in for a treat.
