    2013 Music Appreciation Thread

    I know we are only 4 days in but a plethora of great 2013 albums have already been released/leaked. Plus you should post what you are looking forward to.

    I've heard the new Grouper, Cult of Luna and Yo La Tengo and they are all great.

    Looking forward too-
    Confirmed - And So I Watch You From Afar, Steven Wilson, Atoms For Peace, Deafheaven, Sun Kil Moon & The Album Leaf, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, Autechre, Low, Scout Niblet, Lilacs & Champagne, Holy Sons, The Appleseed Cast, Ensemble Pearl (members of Sunn O))) and Boris). Lots of exciting stuff coming out.

    Unconfirmed but what I hope for -
    Boards of Canada (who doesn't), Pygmy Lush, Bill Callahan, Joanna Newsom, The National, Built to Spill, Benoît Pioulard, Palms.

    Viva 2013!

    A$AP Rocky's LongLiveA$AP - chill and relaxed, some tight beats, I like it.
    Chris Owens' Lysandre - he's no longer with Girls, but I can see that (provided he gets off the dope) this guy has a long and interesting career ahead of him. New album is good, just the right length for its concept and I love the recurring melody played with all different types of instruments.
    Jim James Regions of Light and Sound of God - another solo debut from an already established artist, and this one may be better than his recent output with My Morning Jacket. Subtly different, very mellow and groovy. I like it.

    I'm looking forward to new Local Natives this month, and I'm vaguely interested in the How To Destroy Angels LP, but I can't think of anything else till April, when the Knife FINALLY come out with their new album, Shaking the Habitual. I'd really like some new stuff from Joanna Newsom, the National, Shabazz Palaces and Brand New... but that remains to be seen. It's certainly a good time to release new music for all of them, and there have been rumblings.

    Favourite stuff so far:
    Yo La Tengo - Fade
    Esben and the Witch - Wash the Sins... (the opener and closer are brilliant, rest of the album is still growing on me)
    Hilly Eye - Reasons to Live (psychedelic, riot-grrl influenced awesomeness. Major Sleater-Kinney vibes abound)

    This may be my favorite song of the year so far, I highly recommend checking this record out. It reminds me of Nobunny mixed with the Strokes.


    This guy Sinitus Tempo is also incredibly good, for anyone of Flying Lotus and smooth jazz should check this out. It's a great record.

    Favorite records this year have been...

    My Bloody Valetine - mbv (it's so great)
    Toro y Moi - Anything In Return
    Yo La Tengo - Fade
    Sinitus Tempo - Caged Bird
    FIDLAR - FIDLAR
    Doldrums - Lesser Evil
    Unknown Mortal Orchestra - //
    Foxygen - We Are the 21st Century Ambassadors of Peace & Magic
    Lil B - Pink Flame
    José James - No Beginning, No End
    Ducktails - The Flower Lane
    Christopher Owens - Lysandre

    Honorable mentions:
    A$AP Rocky - Long. Live. A$AP
    Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds - Push The Sky Away
    Indians - Somewhere Else
    Iceage - You're Nothing
    Autre Ne Veut - Anxiety

    The only album I've really HATED this year was Tegan & Sara's "Heartthrob". That record was utter garbage.

    New British Sea Power album in the making! The first single is a slightly glossed-up version of one of the EP tracks, and one of by absolute BSP favourites.

    There's been too many good releases this year for me to rank them at this point, it's almost obscene, but so far, Autechre wins for me.

    1. Phosphorescent - Muchacho
    2. Grouper - The Man Who Died In His Boat
    3. Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds - Push the Sky Away
    4. The Holydrug Couple - Noctuary
    5. Benoît Pioulard - Hymnal
    6. Youth Lagoon - Wondrous Bughouse
    7. My Bloody Valentine - mbv
    8. Atoms For Peace - Amok
    9. Wooden Wand - Blood Oaths of the New Blues
    10. Local Natives - Hummingbird

    My current top 10. There has already been a lot of great music, but there is so much more to look forward to in the next 8 months. I can see any of these dropping out of the top 10 by the end of the year. I need to listen to the new Bonobo still. Thanks for the reminder.
