Solitary Confinement

Deciding what music to take away with me on a week alone is the hardest decision I've faced in a long time. First world problems suck. Going for a week on a deserted coastal town where my grandmother grew up. Looking for recs! Sputnik, you have six hours. List is recentish digs.
1Delusion Twin
A Damaged Machine

Seriously, this rules. Huge shout out to Puzzles. Will be reviewing this when I get back. Chino Moreno had sex with Trent Reznor to create Puzzles.
2The Jezabels

Great local band. Community radio station whores these guys endlessly. See why now.
Endless Midnight

Was expecting more from Caxide, but nice mood music.
4 La Dispute
Somewhere at the Bottom of the River

How have I not heard this before? Eagerly awaiting their next.
5Faith No More
Introduce Yourself

Underrated as fuck. Their best behind Angel Dust IMO.
6The Black Angels
Phosphene Dream

Nice music for a drive. Not too heavy.
7PJ Harvey
White Chalk

Holy shit this is awesome.
8 Jehst
Return of the Drifter

High plains drifter, smash ya transistor. Great underground rap from the UK.

Also another great listen.

How had I not heard this before? [2]
11The Fall of Troy

Needs more delay pedal. How post-hardcore should be done.
12Evan Brewer

Being a bassist, this album makes me feel sexually inadequate.
The Illusion of Democracy

Tosin and Brewer need to do another album together.
14Bliss N Eso
Flying Colours

Another great local band. Love these guys.

Nice, laidback. Was waiting for more Team Sleep. This'll do, sonny.
16Touche Amore
Parting The Sea Between Brightness and Me

Not as good as ...To The Beat, but still. Missed these guys a few weeks ago. Not sure if upset.
17Sage Francis
A Healthy Distrust

Great lyricism. Intelligent; on par with Aesop and Eyedea. Production is slick too.
You Are There

Awesome album. Mono are out here next month, along with about six other bands I want to see. Doubt I'll get the chance. Sadgasm.
19All Shall Perish
This Is Where It Ends

Great deathcore for a deathcore mood. Not as good as the past two albums though.
20Guitar Party

AOTY so far.
21Carbon Carousel
The Some of All Things

Eyedea goes grunge. Sexy!
22The Dillinger Escape Plan
Option Paralysis

Bought this on vinyl, tweeted about it, Puciato thanked me personally. Loving this album. Probably seeing them when they're out here in January.
23Cocteau Twins

Awesome band. They're quite obscure these days, unfortunately. I know a guy who has a signed letter and photograph from these guys from the 80s.
24Circle Takes The Square
As The Roots Undo

Took me a while to get into, loving it now.
25Dirty Three
Ocean Songs

More great local-ish music. Loving it. Self-explanatory.
