10.10.12 What I'm Diggin - Oct 2012

What I'm Diggin - Oct 2012

Ten albums that i'm loving in the lovely month of october 2012. Take a gander, find some new music.
1Yeasayer
Fragrant World


This album is amazing and definitely flew up many's radars. Take a listen and you won't be disapppointed. Best song: Reagan's Skeleton
2Feist
Metals


Just picked this up after hearing her performance (and accompanying win) at the Polaris Prize. Stunner of an album, definitely an awesome atmospheric masterpiece. Best song: Caught a Long Wind
3Interpol
Turn on the Bright Lights


Had heard of Interpol but never really gave a listen. After urging from my friend, picked this one up. Amazing album, definitely a kind of grunge-y Strokes. Best song: Obstacle 1
4Elzhi
Elmatic


A remake of the classic Nas album Illmatic, to fit with Elzhi's own lyrics and upbringing. Definitely went about this the correct way with live instrumentation and original lyrics. Best song: It Ain't Hard to Tell
5Animal Collective
Centipede Hz


When I first listened to the stream of this album, I found nothing to be desired beyond awesome single Today's Supernatural. When I returned to it, I immediately realized that AnCo had another great album on their hands, maybe not on par with their last, but still great nonetheless. Best song: Father Time
6Zeus
Busting Visions


Similar to the previous album, I originally listened through this and found it to be a decent successor, but after spending more time with it, I realized Zeus had a seriously awesome sophomore album on their hands. So vintage while staying true to their indie-rock style. Best song: Strong Mind
7Japandroids
Celebration Rock


An amazing pump up record with tons of energy. Sounds like the live experience captured perfectly. Best song: House that Heaven Built
8GRiZ
Mad Liberation


You may not of heard of GRiZ, but he is an emerging dubstep/electro producer who just put out a free album. I was surprised at the originality of this album while staying within the framework of the dubstep genre. Definitely someone to check out. Best song: Too Young for Tragedy
9Frank Ocean
channel ORANGE


Wow. Did not expect much of this debut, but boy did it surprise. Instantly catchy and kept fresh with interesting production and Mr. Ocean's awesome voice. Definite buy for any fan of the R&B genre. Best song: Pyramids
10Beastie Boys
Ill Communication


A gold classic by the Beasties. To me, their best album, with the best lyrics and most intriguing production. The Beasties in their prime. RIP MCA. Best song: Sure Shot
