Some Intensely Impressive Jams

i suggest considering visiting any and/or all of these if ever you'd like to enjoy some premium tunage
1Secede
Tryshasla


'Born In A Tropical Swamp' is probably this album's best ambassador, as that's exactly what the album sounds like: the teeming miracles that are commonplace in tropical swamps. There's hard-hitting beats, but also sweeping, bubbling ambient passages that crescendo down waterfalls and up into cavernous canopies. The album is Shponglesque in its boldness and eclecticism, but uniquely intense in its execution.
2Cyne
Evolution Fight


An excellent hip-hop album; the beats are innovative, if a little shyly - and the lyrics are a tad elementary at times, but the flows are never rocky and the whole shebang is just butter
3Failure
Fantastic Planet


Criminally underrated alt rock from the good 'ol days. Melodies that are infectious in that grungy, nostalgic kinda way, with bursts of lovely noise and innovative textures along the way
4Electric Masada
At the Mountains of Madness


This shit is LIVE, chowderheads. LIVE. And it's Zorn doing what he does best (the ambiguity there tells you all you need to know): pissing on conventions and making the listener uncomfortable in any fucking way he possibly fucking can. Notes that aren't really 'notes,' per se? Check. That harsh, but sickeningly intriguing car-wreck noise? Yupper. Monstrous repetition? You got it. This performance has a fitting title if I ever saw one
5MF DOOM
MM.. Food


Besides Madvillainy, this is Doom at his buttery, unpretentious best. Despite his totally stoned delivery, the obvious sense of humor that runs through his rhymes (and the rampant sampling of clips having to do with DOOM and food) gives the album a playfulness that just begs to have jalapeno Cheetos eaten next to it
6Black Moth Super Rainbow
Dandelion Gum


I don't really know what to compare this to, and yeah, that's kinda the point. It's definitely sunny day music. Synth and lollipop and groomed unicorn music. Acid and enlightenment and carefree connectedness music.
7NOFX
The Decline


Some might say it's a miracle that an endeavor like this one isn't a complete turd fiesta. But not only is it not a turd fiesta, it fucking slays. Whooda thunk it, an 18- minute political punk epic that never gets too overbearing, preachy, or long. Fuck yeah.
8Xploding Plastix
Amateur Girlfriends Go Proskirt Agents


This shit is just off the chain. Heavily jazz-infused trip-hoppy stuff with lots of curious samples. Some ultra-engaging rhythms and lots of sweeping pretty strings n shit. Can't believe this is so overlooked.
9Deep Puddle Dynamics
The Taste of Rain...Why Kneel


Someone on here called this "the whitest rap album ever created," and while that might be true, it doesn't make the album any less rad. Very interesting verse structures, with lots of visceral switching back n forth between the members, and the lyrics are poetic in that grounded, careful kind of way. Streetwise philosophies. "Contained chaos replaced with natural gracefulness."
10The Smith Street Band
No One Gets Lost Anymore


I'm a sucker for this stuff, but come on, who isn't? Lyrics that hit their sentiments in the bullseye every time, and melodies you'd have to be either dead or asleep to not yell along to. It's no Knife Man or Love Ire & Song, but it's pretty wonderful.
11The Field
From Here We Go Sublime


Minimilista ambienta electronica WAIT, not that last one. I mean, it is electronic, but I just didn't wanna say 'electronica.' This album is basically an ice forest that it's dangerously easy to get lost in
12Damu the Fudgemunk
Sparetime


Phenomenal instrumental hip-hop. It sounds like a spirited amalgamation of all the classics with the lyrics taken out. Simultaneous thinking music and bumpin' music.
13NoMeansNo
Wrong


(time) - this album: ---------> (get it?) Seriously though, this stuff is bonkers. Don't fuck with that bass man, it'll gnaw your damn face off. Dissonance. Weird, dangerous grooves. This album's just got an attitude, man. Don't make it madder than it already is.
14Black Moon
Enta da Stage


You probably already know what this sounds like by looking at the cover and knowing it's from '93, but that don't downgrade the quality, brutha. Still some high- quality, no-bullshit old-school hip-hop
15Streetlight Manifesto
Everything Goes Numb


An absolute embarrassment of riches from the moment it starts to the moment it's done; if you haven't heard this yet, what are you doing. This album doesn't settle at high-quality, it makes sure that every note's got MAJESTY. The time, the terrible patience it takes to create something like this. Magnificent.
