50 Albums You Might Not Have Heard but Should

yeah
1Woob
Woob² 4495


i think this might be my second favorite electronic-related thing, right after Boards of Canada
2Buck 65
Square


A sprawling hip-hop album set up as four 10+ minute songs. just as abstract as it is soothing
3Edie Brickell
Shooting Rubberbands At The Stars


This was an unexpected 5. It's 80s folk-pop stuff that actually uses the 80s trends to its advantage. it doesn't sound dated, it sounds full, yet delicate. and always beautiful
4Genelec & Memphis Reigns
Scorpion Circles


In passionate moments I think this might be the best hip-hop album ever
5Johnny Foreigner
Waited Up 'til It Was Light


A wildly vibrant masterpiece of a punk/alternative offshoot I didn't really realize existed. amazing shouted and slurred male and female vocals, trippy and spastic and yet you can't stop following it. seriously, this should have a 4.3 at least
6The Thermals
The Body, The Blood, The Machine


read tha review mang
7Ahmad
Ahmad


potsy-hop
8Asobi Seksu
Citrus


if you heard it first you'd probably think it was Japanese, but these guys are actually from New York. absurdly gorgeous shoegazey dream pop stuff
9Black Dice
Beaches and Canyons


hypnotizing avant-ambient stuff
10Bluetech
Sines And Singularities


amazing soft and straight-forward downtempo stuff
11Born Gold
Bodysongs


Pop mixing way too many drugs
12Breather Resist
Charmer


Sludgy trippy metalcore produced by Kurt Ballou. This tends to be the metalcore album i recc people right after Jane Doe, We Are the Romans, Opposite of December, etc.
13Busdriver
Temporary Forever


absurd, cartoony hip-hop with an emphasis on the poetry (the lyrics are consistently packed with more words than really fit, and there's a few spoken-word interludes, but it's all brilliant). you might've heard Imaginary Places on the Tony Hawk game it was on
14Clark
Body Riddle


Really hard to describe electronic stuff. but it's light and airy with still really powerful harmonies
15Das EFX
Dead Serious


This really is essential
16Deep Puddle Dynamics
The Taste of Rain...Why Kneel


Hyper-brainy hip-hop courtesy of Sole, Alias, Doseone, and Slug
17Dirtwire
Dirtwire


electro-folk or something
18Dynospectrum
Dynospectrum


more hyper-brainy hip-hop with Slug and others - this one's darker tho
19Elephant9
Walk the Nile


Insane jazz fusion
20Ellen Allien & Apparat
Orchestra Of Bubbles


More beautiful electro
21Emma Ruth Rundle
Some Heavy Ocean


I will put this on as many lists as I need to
22Eric Dolphy
At the Five Spot, Vol. 1


If you like Out to Lunch, this is next.
23Extra Life
Secular Works


Probably not for everyone.. but entrancing if you let it inside you. these songs are like... deconstructed hymns sung fiercely instead of somberly, and set to rhythms determined by this terrifying pulse in the center.
24Fu-Schnickens
Nervous Breakdown


more amazing potsy-hop
25Hum
Downward Is Heavenward


incredible shoegaze/alternative
26Hungry Ghosts
Alone, Alone


as the main review says, "silence in the form of music"
27Infidel?/Castro!
Bioentropic Damage Fractal


still the wildest piece of experimental music i've heard
28Jan Dukes de Grey
Mice and Rats in the Loft


"folk," "psychedelic," "progressive rock..."
29McLuhan
Anomaly


my soundoff: "Wow... this is fucking insane. Even though I can see why I'd never heard of it. Anomaly is a set of four beastly journeys filled with comically unique, almost campy instrumentation. Flutes, all kinds of brass, a fucking slide whistle solo? The album's messages come from the fantasy-inspired storybook lyrics, and their vocal delivery, both crooned and spoken, both sounding absurdly legit. But the songs also set aside plenty of time for those magical 70s prog jams, with all the build-ups and explosions executed masterfully. Put simply, Anomaly is delightfully bonkers."
30Miyuki
Ghostly Vibes


dark spacey downtempo
31Mouse On The Keys
An Anxious Object


Post-math-jazz-rock
32My Sleeping Karma
My Sleeping Karma


smooth-as-fuck psychedelic/stoner rock
33Nasum
Human 2.0


essential grind with less than 200 votes
34Number Girl
NUM-HEAVYMETALLIC


I will put this on as many lists as I need to as well
35Oval
94 Diskont


An ambient/electro album unlike any other. seems a lot of people think of it as the beauty in a CD skipping, and i get that, but i think it's more just a downtempo album with all the sounds super hushed down and analog-ified. and it is really beautiful.
36Peste Noire
La Sanie des siecles - Panegyrique de la


French progressive black metal, pretty insane vocals on this one too
37Screaming Females
What If Someone Is Watching Their TV?


catchy ugly explosive punk sung by a screaming female. yummy.
38Sebadoh
Bakesale


Nice hazy indie, with riffs
39The Evens
The Evens


Ian MacKaye and his wife. A masterpiece of "less is more."
40Sweet Trip
Velocity : Design : Comfort


This is something else
41The Books
The Lemon Of Pink


I've heard this called "collage-pop," and while that does cover some of the sound, there's a lot more it doesn't cover. this is really a whole new music. um, yes, one of the best on this list
42White Suns
Sinews


noise rock with very faint memories of "rock"
43Aim
Cold Water Music


Chill-ass trip-hop
44Drop Nineteens
Delaware


Seminal shoegaze
45edIT
Crying Over Pros For No Reason


catchy meticulous glitch-hop
46Love Like... Electrocution
Love Like... Electrocution


honestly one of my favorite skramz albums
47Merzbow
Frog


Really this is so cool. It's jagged noise but there's more space between the layers this time, so it sounds like something more alive than just a big wall of sound
48The Raincoats
The Raincoats


seminal post-punk
49Ufomammut
Idolum


psychedelic/sludge/post-metal
50Holy Fuck
Latin


whatever it is it's gud
