Q3 2014

Top 13 from the last few months, plus a couple that I still need to jam.
1Aaron West and the Roaring Twenties
We Don't Have Each Other


So much emotion in these songs. Not usually into the "guy with an acoustic guitar" genre but i'll be damned if Soupy doesn't do the style so much justice.
2Perturbator
Dangerous Days


Dark, '80s themed cyberpunk dystopian synthwave. Read my review!
3Mick Jenkins
The Water[s]


This guy might just trump Chance and Chief Keef as the most interesting rising Chicago MC.
4Panopticon
Roads to the North


Yes, I know this is technically a Q2 release but I hadn't heard it until recently and thought it merited an inclusion. Most polished Panopitcon work to date.
5Opeth
Pale Communion


No, it's not the Opeth that we loved 10 years ago but as a fan of the '70s prog genre I really can't help but enjoy this. Even if it rips off all the obvious choices like King Crimson and Frank Zappa, it does so with adequate finesse.
6Chris Letchford
Lightbox


Local on the 8s: Weather Channel jams.
7Blues Pills
Blues Pills


Callback to Joplin and Rosalie Collins. A great addition to Nuclear Blast records.
8United Nations
The Next Four Years


Solid album. Not much else to say of it.
9Banks
Goddess


Didn't think I was going to like this because i'm getting real tired of this particular style thats been trendy lately. Can't deny the beauty of this girl's voice though and the fact the honesty in the lyrics.
10Trioscapes
Digital Dream Sequence


If you liked Seperate Realities you'll like this too.
11Death Grips
the powers that b - part I: niggas on the moon


Also a Q2 release but this has grown on me a bit since then. Fav tracks: Say Hey Kid and Have a Sad Cum
12Wolves in the Throne Room
Celestite


Ambient soundscapes from some of the best American Black Metallers in the game. Still hoping they've gotten it out of their system so they can go back to that raw, gritty bm sound we all adore.
13 The Rosebuds
Sun + Sand
14YOB
Clearing the Path to Ascend


Need to hear this. Reviews i've read have been mixed.
15Saor
Aura


Everyone has rec'd this album to me so I figure eventually I spin this. Early impressions have reminded me a bit of Summoning which is cool I suppose.
