First Quarter Favorites

Pretty good first quarter, out of all of these I absolutely love the top 5 or so, and the last 5 or 6 are the ones that still need to grow on me some more.
20Hell-O-Hill
Maelstrom


Blow Your Fucking Brains Out. Punk RAWK.
19The Saddest Landscape
After the Lights


I really wish this could have been higher, but it was just way too much of the same.
18Every Time I Die
Ex Lives


One of the most consistent bands in their scene, dont see this having too much staying power for me, aside from Underwater Bimbos
17Ceremony
Zoo


Screw the haters, this is an awesome effort in the vein of classic punk
16Boxer
Undertow


Solid as hell pop-punk, a great listen from start to finish that makes me excited for their full length
15Caravels/Gifts From Enola
Well Worn
14Roar
I'm Not Here to Make Friends
13Loma Prieta
I.V.


Great cd, but I don't think I am as into it as most of the people on this site.
12 Departures
Green Turns to Red, Then To Gold


Melodic hardcore done right. As good as their full length was, I'm starting to prefer them in smaller doses like this.
11No Trigger
Tycoon


Kicks ass all the way through.
10The Sidekicks
Awkward Breeds


Reminds me of old old old Weezer with more of an edge.
9State Faults
Desolate Peaks


Skramz as fuck. Best I have heard all year (sorry Loma Prieta)
8The Mars Volta
Noctourniquet


Weird as hell, but surprisingly listenable compared to some of their other stuff (i'm not the biggest fan of prog) and a few of the songs on here seem to be the closest we are ever going to get to new ATDI songs, which is definitely a plus.
7Andrew Bird
Break It Yourself


Should have listened to this guy a long time ago, this is mainly so high because it got me into his older stuff, but that doesn't mean it isn't awesome
6Joyce Manor
Of All Things I Will Soon Grow Tired


Nowhere near as good as their self titled, but after giving it time to grow on me I have started to really enjoy their more indie oriented sound. Would have broken the top five here but it just feels lacking in length. Seeing them at the end of the month with Andrew Jackson Jihad!!
5Burial
Kindred


Yeah, well....duh.
4Spraynard
Exton Square


This perfect little burst of pop-punk already dibs'd being the soundtrack to my summer...
3Veils
Clarity


Absolutely fantastic female fronted skramz ep, hectic and brutal and melodic and awesome. It's short as hell so there is no excuse not to at least give it a try
2The Menzingers
On the Impossible Past


It took a while for me to get over the fact that this wasn't Chamberlain Waits Pt. 2 (where's muh screams!), but when I did this album pretty much clicked perfectly. Also, growing up in Scranton PA gives me a very small amount of hometown pride. Seeing them at the end of April!
1Cursive
I am Gemini


Easily my favorite of the year, it has a killer concept/lyrics, is catchy as fuck, and sounds like Cursive trying harder than they have in years. Saw them play about half this cd last night, which just further cemented this as my personal favorite
