I'll search them up, that makes me excited because to be honest I've always liked Panda better than Avey maybe it's because I like Person Pitch and Young Prayer better than any AC albums, probably because of that. I'm stoked.

Panda Bear's last album was AMAZING. I have it behind Year Zero as the second best album of the year. Just got back into it and am definitely hooked on it again.

Yeah it was one of my favorite albums of the year too. Have you heard Young Prayer? It's a lot different but I like it, it's mostly acoustic though and way different from Person Pitch but I think I like it more because it's more to my taste. It's very haunting. It's weird though because all the songs are pretty short but they seem to go on forever (in a good way) while on Person Pitch the 12 minute songs seem to slip by in only a few minutes.

I downloaded Young Prayer after falling in love with Person Pitch and didn't like it. But I think it's because I wanted something in the vein of Person Pitch.

Quite possibly the most chilled reggae albums I have ever heard. This is mainly because it is played with big soul overtones from the smooth vocals and excellent horn work. This will either bore the hell out of you, or lull your senses into a groove laden bliss.

NZ band. :)

My favourite NZ band is Jakob (post-rock). In fact, they're one of my favourite post-rock bands overall.

Black Sheep Boy owns both and is one of my favorite albums ever, it will blow you away when you hear it. Everything is kicked up a notch, it's one of the most emotive things I've ever heard.

The Stage Names is pretty good. There's something really beautiful about A Girl In Port.

Pink Floyd-La Carrera Panamericana (1992)
http://www.ringgi.com/PinkFloyd-90-Dateien/image024.jpg

Nick Mason and David Gilmour took part in this legendary race in the early 90's. A documentary was made and the Floyd supplied the soundtrack. Most of the tracks were left over from A MOMENTARY LAPSE OF REASON and consist of fairly average instrumentals. Still nice to have if you love the Floyd.

Discharge-Hear Nothing See Nothing Say Nothing (1982)
http://homepages.nyu.edu/~alr237/dis...earnothing.jpg

Coming just after the classic and influential Damaged by Black Flag. This album perfectly marriages that albums nihilism with a remarkably aggressive sound that predates the thrash metal explosion of a year later. Double bass drum kicks, brutal riffs and snarling brutality combine to make one of the best punk/crossover albums ever.

The Kinks Are The Village Green Preservation Society (1968)
http://991.com/newGallery/The-Kinks-...e-G-344125.jpg

I have only just heard this and I'm asking myself-how could I let a gem like this slip through my fingers? In Ray Davies the U.K has one of it's finest singer-songwriters. On this album you can see why. The Last of The Steam Powered Trains and Wicked Annabella are not only great musically but lyrically too. A great pop album that has gotten lost in the haze of Sgt. Peppers and The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn seemingly being the sole representatives of great british 60's pop.

3) The Libertines - Up the Bracket

They get a rough time all together, and in my opinion, its totally undeserved. This album is near perfect and packed with fun tunes that are intelligent and exciting.

2) Richard Hawley - Coles Corner

At first it sounds like boring old music, but it opens up and is a very romantic album, every track of it is perfect.

1) Cribs - Mens needs, Womens needs, Whatever...

I love this album, it has great melodies and great lyrics, as well as being pretty exciting as far as the music goes. Theres just something about it that really captures me every time I hear them.

Yndi Halda: Enjoy Eternal Bliss
http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y17...ie33/asfsd.jpg

This album is one of the rare albums that I truly enjoy listening to all the way through. Dash and Blast is amazing near the end, and Illuminate My Heart, My Darling! is one of my favorite post-rock songs of all time.

Bright Eyes: Fevers and Mirrors
http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y17...e33/fevers.jpg

This is quickly becoming my favorite bright eyes album.
Favorite songs: A Spindle, A Darkness, A Fever, A Necklace, Something Vague, The Movement Of A Hand, and Sunrise, Sunset.

Devendra Banhart: Rejoicing In The Hands
http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y17.../rejoicing.jpg

A folk masterpiece, and easily his best guitar work imo. I know most people prefer Cripple Crow, but this album + Nino Rojo are the ones I will remember him for.

Man Man- Six Demon Bag
http://sunvalley.files.wordpress.com...clzzzzzzz_.jpg
It's a very nice an welcoming change to what I normally listen to, in terms of vocals. I've had the album for a while and have started getting into it a couple of weeks ago, but lately it's been all I listen to. I love Honus Honus' voice coupled with the goofy backup vocals. :)

favourite tracks: Engwish Bwudd, Van Helsing Boombox, Ice Dogs

What genre is it though? (roughly?). A comparison sound or band would greatly enhance the mini reviews from people.
