On the old ETS someone posted this thread and I remember, without knowing what it was, I got all pissy about pretentious sounding genre tags... Now for the past two (three? four?) years it's ~80% of what I listen to. With such a huge pool of artists, well-known and obscure, this thread was a great resource for me in discovering great music.
My favorite label A Tenderversion Recording has had a few great releases this year.
September Malevolence - Our Withers Unwrung
Scraps of Tape - Resident Flux
Solander - Passing Mt. Satu
And another favorite release from this year,
I'll try to keep posting good music here as I'm listening to it, there's so many amazing bands that don't get enough attention.
New album from God is an Astronaut out Sept 16th!
Just an FYI, the amazing band MONO from Japan have all of their albums on sale at the moment.
Signed CDs $9.99
Signed Double LPs $14.99
Not bad deals at all for the vinyl…considering vinyl prices now-a-days and they are all autographed by the band.
Been checking out some new artists lately and gotta say that North Atlantic Drift is some good editing music.
They are very much like the Nashville band Hammock.
And I've also had a recent binge with This Will Destroy You. I've always been a fan and have owned every album but I just recently became full blown obsessed. Tunnel Blanket may just be a perfect album IMO.
And their 2xLP Live From Reykjavik is AMAZING.
Pre-Order for the new Caspian record is up.
2xLP White vinyl or limited 2xLP 180g Black vinyl (Pre-order exclusive limited to 400)

My buddy just recently showed me this and I'm already in love. It's perhaps a bit more of the jazzy side but still absolutely gorgeous!
not sure why this thread hasn't gotten more love.
anyway, my friend/bandmate is interviewing Caspian today for AudioTree, i'll post the interview when it's up!
