Since I last posted...this is what I've downloaded.



Sudden Death Of Stars - Getting Up, Going Down (2013)




Blitzen Trapper - Furr (2008)
Turned out to be my favorite album discovery this year so far, I'd say. Getting much enjoyment out of it.




The Growlers - Hot Tropics (2010)




The Growlers - Hung at Heart (2013)




Paul McCartney - McCartney (1970)




Steve Gunn - Time Off (2013)




Ty Segall - Sleeper (2013)
I like the more chill approach but it seems too samey to me. Maybe next he'll successfully mix his various styles into one cohesive and varied album. Good material though, just not varied enough.




Montage - Montage (1969)




Sulk - Graceless (2013)




Caveman - Caveman (2013)

Holograms - Forever (2013)




Man Man - On Oni Pond (2013)
Not disappointed, may be better than Life Fantastic which was a little disappointing. Maybe now I'm used to their tamer style.




Nine Inch Nails - Hesitation Marks (2013)
I still haven't gotten around to a second listen of this, but the first was pretty alright. About what I expected I guess, I think I'll get some enjoyment out of it. "Came Back Haunted" is still pretty silly.




Jackson and His Computer Band - Glow (2013)
not nearly as interesting as his last release. First half contains the awful "G.I. Jane" (WTF?). Second half is stronger.




Pixies - EP1 (2013)
Indie Cindy is pretty good I'd say, certainly could have been far worse. The rest was ok but not too worthy of my time. I guess I'll put it on a few more times to give it a fair chance. I'm not trying to be hard on them, but if you're gonna put out new music after this long it should be worth it.




Pink Frost - Sundowning (2013)




The Coral - The Coral (2002)
Cool garage/psych pop revival stuff.




The Beets - Let the Poison Out (2011)
Fun garage rock revival.

A couple of OK tunes on the NIN album but it didn't grab me at all. I really would like to see Reznor pushing the envelope and not make music that is relatively safe and dare I say uninteresting these days?

I agree, I really was hoping for something a bit different from a supposedly "reinvented" NIN. He hasn't done anything daring since The Fragile.

miRthkon - Snack(s)

miRthkon delivers once again. While this album ventures far more into the avant region of avant-prog than their last album, Vehicle, it still retains the funness that is sometimes lost in avant-garde music. This album is very jumpy, comical, and sounds like an overall mess that accidentally sounded good. Highly recommended for fans of Frank Zappa, Doctor Nerve, Panzerballet, etc. I wouldn't say that this has made my list for 2013 (yet, I expect for it to grow on me a bit).

Nah, I streamed it on bandcamp for free. I may look into paying for a copy but I'm going to give it a few more listens before I do so.

Vehicle is all kinds of good.

Damn right, boi. After my first listen, I like Vehicle better than Snack(s), but I was kind of in a bad mood when I first listened to it so I'm going to give it a few more before I solidify my decision. Plus I didn't listen to much avant-prog before them so they sort of opened the gate for me, in a sense. I don't see this album quite doing that for me, or at least after my initial listen.
