Good Grief, that's a Long Time between Posts

New stuff coming soon, going to try a few new things and break up the longer pieces with some quicker material. In the meantime, just a few points of interest. A) My top 10 albums of 2012 (late as usual) 1). Cloud Nothings - Attack on Memory 2). METZ - METZ 3). Sharon Van Etten - Tramp 4). Chromatics - Kill for Love 5). The Men - Open Your Heart 6). Swans - The Seer 7). Bat for Lashes - The Haunted Man 8). DIIV - Oshin 9). Melody's Echo Chamber - Melody's Echo Chamber 10). Spiritualized - Sweet Heart Sweet Light B) Current running list of best albums of 2013 My Bloody Valentine - mbv (holy crap, it's not just out, it's really, really good) Savages - Silence Yourself (extremely derivative, but really effective in its derivations) The Joy Formidable - Wolf's Law The Knife - Chasing the Habitual (still parsing this one, but it's an incredibly effective and impressive achievement) Youth Lagoon - Wonderous Bughouse The National - Trouble Will Find Me The Flaming Lips - The Terror (for as "wacky" as they have gotten with their gimmicks and stunts, the actual music and videos these guys have put out following "At War With the Mystics" is DARK - way darker than anything they did before, even the stunt collaboration record is pretty grimy (and great)) Iceage - You're Nothing
