The Magnetic Fields "69 Love Songs"

I just got this a few days ago and it really hasn't left my stereo. All three albums are solid and beautiful and All My Little Words is my favorite song right now. At times its like an upbeat Joy Division at other times lo-fi folk beauty.
Favorite Songs: All My Little Words, I Think I Need A New Heart, Absolutely Cuckoo, The Luckiest Guy On The Lower East Side, I Don't Want to Get Over You, Promises of Eternity

Elliott Smith "XO"

This album is so beautiful and so is Elliott Smith. I have trouble expressing just how much his music means to me and it always feels like I fall short when I try to so I won't try to right here.
Favorite Songs: Pitseleh, Waltz #1, I Didn't Understand, Waltz #2 (XO), Tomorrow Tomorrow, Baby Britain, Independence Day

The Good Life "Help Wanted Nights"

Tim Kasher is a brilliant lyricist and I'm steadily starting to like The Good Life better than Cursive. This album is like he sat there at the end of my relationship and took notes and then wrote an album about it, that sounds cliche but to me it's beautiful.
Favorite Songs: Heartbroke, Keely Aimee, Some Tragedy, So Let Go, You Don't Feel Like Home to Me

Bright Eyes "Fevers & Mirrors"

This is the album that was responsible for shifting my tastes the most in 05 and it was also my favorite Bright Eyes album for a very long time. Conor's lyrics here are the best they've ever been and some of the best that have ever been.
Favorite Songs: The Calendar Hung Itself, Something Vague, Haligh Haligh A Lie Haligh, The Movement of a Hand, The Center of the World

George Michael - Patience

I cant be the only who appreciates the later albums of George Michael, surely? The standard of songwriting & production is high throughout all 14 songs, mix that with the fact that George has an incredible voice which does nothing but mature with age and you have yourself a fantastic pop record, quite ahead of it's time.

Favourite songs : Amazing, Cars & Trains, My Mother Had A Brother.

I haven't been able to stop listening to these two albums for about two weeks.

Hot Cross - Risk Revival
I love this album it has that hardcore feel with screamo lyrics and the guitar sounds soo good. It reminds me a lot of The Fall of Troy just because of the guitar work. It is different from their other albums vocally but I love it so much.

Million Dead - Harmony No Harmony
Love this album. Not really sure what it is. I love his vocals and the lyrics are just seem so down to earth. I like that fact that he doesn't always sound like he is trying to speak in codes with his lyrics. The songs are a lot different throughout the whole album from a melodic slow song to a hardcore smash you in the face songs. I love it. (Thanks to Crowquill for putting up a compilation of them.)

That Million Dead album is killer, Frank Turner (the singer) has some nice solo stuff he's doing recently. It's acoustic kind of like Billy Braggish. - Frank Turner - UK - Folk / Punk / Country -

Superb live Jazz album from 1971, with hints of Funk and Soul. This baby has taken a long time for me to track down. Originally I only wanted the cover of A WHITER SHADE OF PALE, but upon acquiring the whole album, I have fell hook , line and sinker for it.


An album that I have no right to liking. A cross between !!! and Arctic Monkeys is the best desciption, but it is just so catchy! Perfect for work.

Of Montreal-Hissing Fauna, Are You The Destroyer?

This is a definite grower and I can see myself going back to this frequently.


Yeah I have only just discovered this. How behind the times am I? It get's better every time I hear it. Maybe a lack of knowledge and fan baggage has helped my opinion remaining neutral.

Swervedriver - Mezcal Head

Even though my love for Slowdive dwarfs the attention I give similar bands (even MBV), I really can't believe it's taken me so long to listen to these guys. The more pop-song orientated side of shoegaze, but I love it nevertheless.

Antipop Consortium - Arrhythmia

Anyone looking to get into experimental hip-hop should definitely get this album. Only found out a few weeks ago that they were getting back together so I dug around my CDs to re-discover this gem!

Stars of the Lid - The Tired Sounds of...

The perfect representation of the term 'beautiful minimalism,' in that are no drums or vocals (but the odd sample here and there) and the melody is mainly based on the gentle swells and falls in the music.

Deathspell Omega - Si Monumentum Requires, Circumspice

An essential black metal record. 'Nuff said.
