2011, Overlooked & Unknown (Volume II)
1Le Revelateur

(Ambient) Former Godspeed You! Black Emperor guitarist Roger Tellier-Craig's first solo album, full of 70s krautrock electronics and subtle ambience. Think early Tangerine Dream. | Sample: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VqoS-VVm3kw

(Art Rock / Dream Pop) Trippy dream pop in post-rock form. Dense atmospheres and crooning falsetto's galore. | Sample: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OaZN9RFnoLI
3Leyland Kirby
Eager To Tear Apart The Stars

(Ambient) Leyland Kirby (a.k.a. The Caretaker) is one of the most impressive ambient artists out there, balancing merciless beauty with unforgiving hostility. | Sample: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n-9nw565q04
4Blood Orange
Coastal Grooves

(Indie Pop) Get lost in the shameless dancehall grooves. | Sample: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4avBdTgA-eQ
5 Cat's Eyes
Cat's Eyes

(Neo-Psych / Dream Pop) A side project of The Horror's frontman Farris Badwan, any fan's of the band will enjoy this; a black & white shade of sulty retro-pop. | Sample: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SSXKWQz_R-Q

(Stoner Rock / Sludge Rock) Reminiscent of early Electric Wizard. This album is full of thick, brooding grooves and smokey sludge that any fan of stoner rock should be able to appreciate. | Sample: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1dXOvUnCmoM
7Maria Minerva
Cabaret Cixous

(Dream Pop) Catchy lo-fi dream pop, heavy on the hallucinogens. | Sample: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fvSQ7OnJMlA

(Dubstep) Consistently good beats, dub it up. | Sample: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZqFYUtyd0Hg
9Necro Deathmort
Music Of Bleak Origin

(Electronic / Industrial / Drone Metal) Dub beats + charcoaled guitars = Music Of Bleak Origin. Haven't heard anything quite like this. Try to imagine if Sunn O))) put out an electronic album. | Sample: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yv5GSOHWR2c
10Sean McCann
The Capital

(Ambient) Soothing ambient for pastoral days and careless daydreams. | Sample: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OrpNAEy-_6U
11James Pants
James Pants

(Psych-Pop) An excellent debut album, similiar to the likes of Ariel Pink, John Maus, and Toro Y Moi. Though Pants has more to say than his contemporaries. Full of vintage finesse and groovy lounge jams. | Sample: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kAV2I-cDctU
12A Winged Victory For The Sullen
A Winged Victory For The Sullen

(Ambient) This is a collaboration between Stars Of The Lid member Adam Wiltzie and L.A. composer Dustin O'Halloran. It's beautifully composed music; lush classical ambience behind distant piano melodys. If Stars of the Lid scored a film, it may sound something like this. | Sample: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q7L8OQO2qGk
Complex Housing

(Dubstep) Electro-funk, meet dubstep. | Sample: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xnfz_w7jR9Y
14Pure X

(Ambient Rock) Hazy ambient rock in the tradition of Galaxie 500 and The Jesus and Mary Chain. Consistent thoughout, it's an excellent debut album. | Sample: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xFnFmuMLGfY
15Liquor Store
Yeah Buddy

(Garage Punk) The vocals may be a bit grading at times, but damn it these guys sound great throughout their massively rocking, groovy debut. And oh boy, that cover. Yeah buddy. | Sample: http://www.youtube.com/watch? v=FgZlNVmSXjs
16Mikal Cronin
Mikal Cronin

(Garage Rock) One of the best debut's of the year. It's catchy lo-fi rock that brings to mind sugary 60s pop and 90s tuned nostalgia. | Sample: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VkTCmGiz2oY
Bible Eyes

(Dubstep) Beats Beats Beats. Some nice diversity here. | Sample: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XCh2Uze6b-U
18 Junior Boys
It's All True

(Synth-Pop) Classy electro-pop. Smooth synths and light 80s-pop reside throughout. | Sample: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hpCXHGUJBm8

(Ethereal Pop) If you liked the new Ford & Lopatin, check this one out. Basically, it sounds like the Cocteau Twins on acid + some fuck around instrumentals. | Sample: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pbbOOlYyWlw
20FareWell Poetry
Hoping for the Invisible to Ignite

(Post-Rock) Without a doubt one of the best post-rock records of the year, if not the best. Any fan of the genre needs to hear this. | Sample: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SoXrZppEcV8
21Disco Inferno
The Five EPs

(Experimental Rock / Post-Rock) Vastly underrated, Disco Inferno's clever sampling and ambitious efforts still sound as fresh as ever. Nobody sounded like this in the early 90s, and nobody has since. This album is a collection of all of their EPs, which are argueably better than their albums. A must own. | Sample: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qlohWF5NFxc
