digs are delicious. Life is good when you always got music. Here's some stuff I've been havin fun with lately.
1Emma Ruth Rundle
Some Heavy Ocean

2Yellow Swans
Going Places

Beautiful hazy noise with perfectly orchestrated glimmers of edge and excitement
3John Wiese
Soft Punk

Meticulous ADD noise that's just as entertaining as it is twisted and jarring
4Haiku d'Etat
Coup De Theatre

Hella underrated hip-hop. Seriously, I think one more listen to this at the right moment could make it a 5. thanks Potsy
5The National
The National

So I'm finally listening to the earlier stuff from my favorite band. And, uh... "Son" is pretty great, but the rest is is really, really eh. Cool to hear where the "29 years" thing came from, though.
6The National
Cherry Tree

This EP is fantastic, though. Wasp Nest and Cherry Tree especially.
7The National
The Virginia EP

Blank Slate, Santa Clara, and You've Done it Again Virginia are all the shit, though there's nothing bad on here. Except for maybe the early version of Slow Show, which somehow turned out to be one of the best songs on Boxer.
Minazo Vol. 1

Definitely the best Merzbow I've heard so far. Voices from the Sea is fucking otherworldly.
9Werewolf Jerusalem
Music for Mass Radio

This stuff is suffocating. And claustrophobic. And yet really, really stretched out and expansive. Great stuff.
10The Knife
Shaking the Habitual

How could you think this is not amazing. Found the CD still wrapped at Half Price Books for 6 bucks :D
11Wolf Eyes
Burned Mind

This is pretty meh. There's good ideas but they don't get expanded upon enough
12Wolf Eyes
Human Animal

This is a lot better. Especially Rationed Rot.
Four One Five Two

Didn't like this nearly as much as I expected to. Pretty homogeneous
14I Am A Lake Of Burning Orchids

15Jason Lescalleet
The Pilgrim

lol wtf is this
16The Low End Theory
The Low End Theory

Had to put this in the database. Pretty underrated indie emo
17Matt Elliott
Failing Songs

I can definitely see why people would like this, but it's a little anticlimactic for me
18Handsome Boy Modeling School
So ... How's Your Girl?

A fucking amazing hip-hop celebration. Holy Calamity was on THUG 2, and when it came on when I was listening to the album I was just like... HOLY SHIT I've heard this song a million times, but now that I'm listening to it in its proper context I can actually hear how amazing it is! haha love it when that happens
19Eric Copeland

This is really cool. Don't really know what to call it. It's not noise, but it's definitely somewhere outside the "electronic" realm. Check out Oreo
If You Leave

A little samey after a while, but some really, really beautiful moments too. Probably the queen of my 3.5s
21The Black Heart Procession

Some nice, dark, subtly theatrical indie stuff. I can see how some might find it a little dull or saccharine tho
Morning View

iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii wish you were here!!!
23Edie Brickell
Shooting Rubberbands At The Stars

Put "Edie Brickell and the New Bohemians" in the database only to find that this was already here, tho I thought i already checked like a week before i made mine. derp. anyway, this album is a 5 and i'm prolly gonna review it
Slow Fade Or: How I Learned To Question Infinity

These guys can riff like nobody's business, but the vocalist has seriously one of the only voices I've ever heard that I can NOT get past. It's so nasally that it actually affects his tone, and sometimes it sounds like he's not even singing to the beat of the song. Like he's just vomiting all over everything. Ugh. It's a real shame. But yeah, this is their best imo. It's got the most texture and the vox are least annoying
25Shook Ones
Facetious Folly Feat

Engaging, totally harmless hardcore
26The Thermals
The Body, The Blood, The Machine

one of the best albums ever
27Green Day

28Green Day

29Green Day

now this album i can get down with. Nice Guys Finish Last, The Grouch, Redundant, Platypus, Walking Alone... mm. Tasty. Better than Dookie.

Prolly the only album from 2015 on this list hahaha. Really good shit, though. Thick groovy metal with a lot of tasteful electronics and really cool vocals

One of the best albums ever [2]
32Algernon Cadwallader
Some Kind Of Cadwallader

pretty cool
33Hightide Hotel
Porch Luck

One of the must substantial releases I've heard from this style of emo
Ready for the House

ummmm okay? may possibly review this
Fuck Your Emotional Bullshit

yeah yeah it's fun
36Their / They're / There
Their / They're / There

THIS is fucking awesome. feel like this should have a 4 average at least. when are these guys gonna do a full-length???
37My Heart To Joy
Seasons In Verse

I found this to be pretty substantial too. Especially that Guided by Voices cover, that was a really pleasant surprise
38The God Machine
Scenes from the Second Storey

Some great overlooked metal. Some of the riffs are a little simplistic but they make up for it by getting locked in these really great atmospheric passages
American Radass (This Is Important)

some really awesome parts but a lot of eh too. prolly gonna quit with this niche for a while haha

yeah, it's vicious
41Number Girl

LISTEN TO THIS. I don't even know how to explain it, it's like... atmospheric post-math rock? or something? it's Japanese, so you know it's awesome. it's got heavy-ass jam sessions and beautiful calmness. it's wonderful.
42The Shadow Ring
Hold onto I.D.

LISTEN TO THIS TOO. Nightmarish spoken-word laid over industrial, almost tribal-sounding beats with really sharp electro sounds giving things even more of an outlandish atmosphere. probably one of the ballsiest and most frighteningly unique albums i've ever heard
Scratch or Stitch

found this CD at a thrift store. picked it up cuz what are the odds of that? music's alright but the vocals are LOL
44Sissy Spacek
Sissy Spacek

this album needs to stfu
45The Gerogerigegege
Tokyo Anal Dynamite

never expected to feel this way about an album like this, but... it's alright?
Metal Dysplasia

It's a little meaty for what it is, but also pretty entertaining. Harsh clangy noise rooted in industrial. Not really one of my strong suits yet but I like what I'm hearing
47Lasse Marhaug
The Shape Of Rock To Come

I found this amazing. Sleeper and All In Good Spirits especially. Some of the most creative sound-shifting i've heard in a while
Ebu Gogo Gutting The Child

death metal with no guitars, just basses. and you know, it works surprisingly well.
49Ted Leo And The Pharmacists
Shake The Sheets

pretty hard to not find this delightful
50The Chinkees
The Chinkees Are Coming

overlooked ska-punk. very fun stuff
51The Angels of Light
How I Loved You

folk/folk-rock/whatever that gets its power from simple repetition and texture rather than from finding unique structures every time. singer's got a great, unique voice as well. you will find yourself engrossed. tho some may get bored.
