Well, I only have two albums from this year so far, but I really like 'em both:

-21st Century Breakdown (Green Day...duh)
-Let The Dominoes Fall (Rancid)

They're both quite different from what the bands normally do.

A lot of my favorite albums so far have been from well established bands. Most of my more anticipated releases aren't getting put out until later in the year.

Nofx- Coaster
Arguably on par with their best; Orphan Year has turned into my favorite song of theirs.

Ranicd- Let the Dominos Fall
A perfect summer record. Lots of catchy ska, just wish there was a bit more Lars.

New Found Glory – Not Without a Fight
Nothing groundbreaking, but just fun, catchy pop-punk. It easily eclipses their previous two full lengths.

Propaghandi – Supporting Caste
I’ve never been much of a Prop fan, but I reluctantly decided to check it out, and was pleasantly surprised. A solid record, but I don’t think they quite live up to the hype that others give them.

Green Day 2st Century Breakdown
I'm a fanboy, and wasn't disappointed by this one. Not without it's faults, but there isn't a song that i actively dislike, and the Static Age has become one of my favorite songs by the band.

Sights and Sounds – Monolith
They didn’t really think they’d be something that I’d listen to, but I was shocked when I first heard some of their stuff; they sound almost like an early Jimmy Eat World mixed with just a hint of Alkaline Trio. I doubt many outside of Canuckastan will have heard of them though. (their song, Reconsile: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w3bQt1LvLtU )

And The Strokes are gonna release a new album sometime soon..:cool:

coke_a_holic
06-21-2009, 04:09 PM
Oh jesus, um

Manchester Orchestra's Mean Everything To Nothing is my favorite of the year so far

Titus Andronicus' The Airing Of Grievances is FANTASTIC

Bomb The Music Industry's Scrambles, of course

Neko Case's Middle Cyclone was even better than I expected

Art Brut Vs. Satan

Fuckin' Battlehooch's Piecechow was excellent

mewithoutYou's new one was a great cd, REALY different, really cool.

Oh, and Cursive! Of course! Sweet. Good year!

Rooster
06-21-2009, 04:16 PM
Well, here are my picks:

Elvis Jackson: Against The Gravity (a largely unknown band from Slovenia, but this album is fantastic, a lot of energetic and melodic punk rock songs, and also some reggae tracks, the download link is somewhere in the Elvis Jackson thread in this section of the forum, if you want to check, it's really catchy)

Rancid: Let The Dominoes Fall (i have the expanded version with an acoustic CD and DVD, great additions)

Anti-Flag: The People or The Gun (really nice return from them, by far better than anything they've put out on RCA)

NOFX: Coaster

The best records so far in 2009 for me (haven´t bought too many records from this year):

Green Day - 21st Century Breakdown
It´s a good album, following on the same track as one of the greatest albums ever: American Idiot.

Classic of Love - Walking in Shadows EP
Awesome EP from legend Jesse Michaels new band. Melodic hardcore punk with the same intensity as Operation Ivy and Common Rider! (Rancid, listen to your ex-band member and learn!)

NOFX - Coaster:
It´s good, but not their best

Eminem - Relapse:
Eminem is a classic!

06-22-2009, 01:10 PM
Man, you guys gotta listen to new music... Seriously. NoFX and Rancid? They stopped being interesting you guys, there's new music that's blowing them out of the water.

Also, if Ricky doesn't post in here, I'm gonna have to add IAYD's Intergalactic because it was so so so good.

Manic Street Preachers - Journal for Plague Lovers

holy shit, that's it.

BUT
Being as cunning as I am, I've managed to get a hold of Clutch's new album Strange Cousins from the West, and it's one of their best. recommendable to everyone, not just Clutch fans. You need this record, you just don't know it yet.

06-25-2009, 02:15 AM
OCTAHEDRON - The Mars Volta. I bought it yesterday and it was love at first listen. It definitely sounds more like De-loused in the Comatorium versus The Bedlam in Goliath. It gets insanely crazy at times, but can also be soothing. "Since We've Been Wrong" reminds me of both "Televators" from De-loused and "The Widow" from Frances the Mute.

Invaders Must Die - The Prodigy. This is an excellent album as well. I've been spreading this album around like herpes. But I don't have herpes. ANYWAYS, I've got a ton of my friends hooked, this album is addicting. "Omen" is an amazing single as is "Warrior's Dance," but "Colours" has to be one of my personal favorites.

I've been meaning to listen to NoFX's and Placebo's new releases, I'm sure they won't disappoint. I've yet to listen to 21st Century Breakdown either, perhaps I'm just not motivated to try it out because I hear my mother blasting American Idiot every night in the shower.

I'm excited to hear the new Regina Spektor, Anti-Flag, and Lily Allen as well.

But Octahedron is a must-listen. Go. Now.

07-05-2009, 03:55 PM
Yeah, i've got a reissue to add....

Frank Turner - Love Ire and Song

It's so good, right now, arguably my favorite album of the year. His stuff has as much energy and anger as any punk album, but musically it's not aggressive like say the folkish early Against Me!. Plus the guys is just so damn charming....

And the lyrics... oh god the lyrics


Well a teacher of mine once told me
That life was just a list of disappoints and defeats
And you could only do your best,
And I said "That's a fucking cop-out, you're just washed up and your tired, and when I get to your age I won't be such a coward"
But these day I sit at home, known to shout at my TV
And Punk Rock didn't live up to what I hoped that it could be
And all the things that I believed with all my heart when I was young
Are just coasters for beers and clean surfaces for drugs
And I packed all my pamphlets with my bibles at the back of the shelf


Well I guess I should confess that I am starting to get old
All the latest music fads all passed me by and left me cold
All the kids are talking slang I won't pretend to understand
All my friends are getting married, mortagages and pension plans
And it's obvious my angry adolescent days are done
And I'm happy and I'm settled in the person I've become
But that doesn't mean I'm settled up and sitting out the game
Time may change alot but some things may stay the same

What's it sound like? I'm downloading it now.

I heard Korpiklaani in a friend's car not long ago, they're a good time but sounded more like a slightly heavier Dropkick Murpheys than they probably would like to admit.

They sound like if... um. Okay, let's see if I can word this:

Neutral Milk Hotel became The Weakerthans and kicked out half of its members, then hired the drummer from Q And Not U. Oh, then asked the producer to make it sound like they recorded all of their music on boomboxes a la The Mountain Goats.

Yeah? It's fucking great. I'm putting it on my blog tomorrow night.

Right now, I'm stickin' with The Rural Alberta Advantage as my favorite of the year. Though, St. Vincent's newest is beautiful upon further listens... and every other cool band is doing things that I like, too. Gah, I might just make a list of all the albums of 2009 that I really liked... it's so hard to imagine that there's even more coming out...


Oh, plus Brand New's new record just leaked and it's fucking INTENSE. Sweet.

The new Lily Allen was not very good. It has a couple decent songs, but nothing on it is anywhere near as good as every single song was on her debut.

Just wanted to mention that it's a bit unfair to compare the new album to her debut, because she didn't do any writing on the first album (just contributed lyrics). On the new one, she at least helped with all the songs. It's a big step for her as a musician, and even if the music isn't as good, it's more real... so that makes it take a few steps up for me.

Anyway, I'm behind on albums this year with my recent move... there have been SO MANY good album so far, and I just looked at a list of upcoming releases still... albums that I've excitedly grabbed or am excited for (so yeah not as much a best of list but that combined with what I'm looking forward to):

Imogen Heap - Elipse
This album is incredible. It's at least as good as Speak for Yourself, if not better.

Katie Todd - Mumbled Speech
well I just got into her, and she's fantastic... I've listened to her album way too many times in the last couple months.

Sister Hazel - Release
These guys used to be my favorite band for a little while... I'm not hugely into them anymore, but I still enjoy their releases. The last two LPs disappointed, but this one is promising. They're starting to experiment a bit.

Static X - Cult of Static
This band is sort of a guilty pleasure for me, but I love them. This album disappointed quite a lot. It seems like they tried to go back to their early sound, but failed. The last two releases were much better than this... In fact, this is possibly their weakest along with Machine.

Collective Soul - Rabbit
Haven't heard yet - way excited!

The Used - Artwork
Another guilty pleasure... they've not disappointed yet, but I've not heard this one yet... excited.

Jay Z - Blueprint 3
Haven't heard this yet, either, but I'm stoked! The last couple Jay Z releases have been mediocre... I'm anticipating something good, especially as I really like the single.

Mika - the boy who knew too much
I'm also way excited for this album... his debut is still up there on my frequently played list.

AFI - Crash Love
God I hope this album isn't like the last one... I listened to Black Sails in Sunset the other day and I remembered how much I loved this band.

Nelly Furtado - Mi Plan
I hope this isn't like her last one, as well... but I generally like her stuff, we'll see.

Squirrel Nut Zippers - Lost at Sea
I thought they broke up! I LOVE these guys! sooo excited, they never disappoint.

Tegan and Sara - Sainthood
Yessss! They're also another one that never disappoints...


I'll be back after I hear some of these albums :P

Government Warning is one of my favourite bands, and they came out with an LP and EP this summer. I ordered them last night, and after what I heard from their Myspace, their new stuff will be just as awesome as what they've done before.

IMO GW's the best hardcore punk band that is active today. Inspired by '80s hardcore.

Their album is called Paranoid Mess and the EP is called Executed.

Songs from all their releases are found here: http://www.myspace.com/governmentwarningrva

I know I've given her props elsewhere for getting involved with the songwriting on this one, but that doesn't change the fact that it doesn't pass the "do I enjoy listening to this?" test.

I don't remember what's come out this year aside from the new mewithoutYou which was pretty sweet, even though there were like 2-3 songs that didn't thrill me on it. I'm looking forward to the new Flaming Lips, Pearl Jam and Themselves albums. OH! The Themselves mixtape came out earlier this year and was lots of fun, though a bit inconsistent. If the fact that they had as many awesome songs on there as they did is any indication, then their actual studio album coming out in October should be awesome.

Fantastic albums. I'm really blown away by the new Arctic Monkeys release. I'm somewhat of a casual fan, but Humbug just might be their best. It sounds like a soundtrack to a Sergio Leone film.

This is super quirky and fun. It doesn't hit me as hard as, say, Amanda Palmer did, but I like it for what it is. The singer has a nice voice, though it's a bit generic sounding...

You listen to rappers who don't write their own music and orchestras that don't write their own music, why is Lily Allen being held to different standards?

Apathy
09-01-2009, 10:17 AM
Most good rappers write their own music and orchestras are obviously a different situation entirely due to the sheer amount/replacability of the members. Not to mention I would classify an orchestra as more a performance based music meaning that it's meant to be seen in person in a huge hall whereas your Lily Allen CD is perfectly fine sitting in your stereo.

Even if none of that is true, she's being held to different standards because most serious artists can and do write their own music.

that being said I have been known to enjoy her.

You listen to rappers who don't write their own music and orchestras that don't write their own music, why is Lily Allen being held to different standards?

Nearly every pop artist I listen to writes his/her/their own music. I have a very hard time with the musicians I like that DON'T write their own music (Jay Z is one of those very few - I'm pretty sure he's the only rapper I like who doesn't write his music).

Classical music is a completely different game. Obviously Gustav Holst couldn't have played his symphonies by himself, so he hired people to perform and record them. But how a symphony is written is not comparable to how the music in a pop song is written. I have higher expectations for pop music because the amount of effort it takes to write the lyrics for and sing a 3 minute pop song is not comparable to the amount of effort it takes to learn and perform an hour-long symphony. I hope I'm making sense...

Well, I mean, Amanda Palmer is a force of nature. I think that St. Vincent is cool mostly because their songs are very cool and quiet, but she does these ridiculously fuzzy and nasty guitar solos underneath all of it. It's pretty interesting hearing the mixtures of the sounds. Seeing them live was a really neat experience.

Didn't know ak3 was putting out a new album. Agony and Irony was sort of a disappointment, and Crimson was only alright. I wonder if they've got another Good Mourning in them...

Horse the Band, Muse, Why? and Electric Six all have new albums coming out in the next month as well.
And Kyp Mallone from TVOTR's solo project. And possibly a new Guster cd before the year's out, though it might come out next year instead.

Bands say this a lot, but it is going to be a "back to basics" sort of thing. It's a a self release, Matt Allison is producing it he worked with them on Good Mourning and From Here to the Infirmary. Skiba described the stuff so far as a "punk rock" record and different from their past couple albums.

Well here's hoping. Goddamnit and Good Mourning are fantastic albums, as well as Maybe I'll Catch Fire. If they could put out anything along that vein, I'd be stoked. Agony and Irony was just so blah... none of the songs really stood out :-/ I'll check it out regardless, though... I really dig them. Did you like Heavens? I actually really enjoyed that album.

I liked Heavens quite a bit, actually. There were talks about getting a second album out, but i think Skiba and the other dude had a bit of a falling out or something.

Agony And Irony had some good pop-songs on it, but wasn't on par with their earlier stuff.

I'm adding these to my list:

Arctic Monkeys - Humbug

Clutch - Strange Cousins from the West

Biblical proof of UFOs - They Come from the Future

Masters of Reality - Pine/Cross Dover

Fantastic albums. I'm really blown away by the new Arctic Monkeys release. I'm somewhat of a casual fan, but Humbug just might be their best. It sounds like a soundtrack to a Sergio Leone film.

Ah I thought "oh Superdope, he likes the Eels, I'm gonna read that message". (Not that I don't read the other ones, though)

Arctic monkeys is gooooooood.

I don't know the other ones but I am definitely going to check Biblical proof of UFOs. When a band has such a name, you have to listen to it.

Speaking of good band names, and since you are danish, do you know the Asteroid Galaxy Tour ? I saw them at Rock en Seine and thought it was not bad at all

I actually mentioned Hombre Lobo in an earlier post, so it definitely was on my mind.

I've heard about The Asteroid Galaxy Tour, but never really noticed their music. Just checked them on myspace. They're pretty cool.

Also, you should start with Interstellar Messages (http://www.mediafire.com/?dujmtwwmzmy). I find that to be Biblical Proof of UFOs most accesible.

i can say that clearly the people or the gun by anti flag

they are going to be more melodic with every new record

its so strange coz they are close to anarcho and street punk

but their sound is so permanet and melodies are easy

The new Lily Allen was not very good. It has a couple decent songs, but nothing on it is anywhere near as good as every single song was on her debut.
she is well fit

Well, here are my picks:

Elvis Jackson: Against The Gravity (a largely unknown band from Slovenia, but this album is fantastic, a lot of energetic and melodic punk rock songs, and also some reggae tracks, the download link is somewhere in the Elvis Jackson thread in this section of the forum, if you want to check, it's really catchy)

Rancid: Let The Dominoes Fall (i have the expanded version with an acoustic CD and DVD, great additions)

Anti-Flag: The People or The Gun (really nice return from them, by far better than anything they've put out on RCA)

NOFX: Coaster

I'd like to add these albums among my picks:

Alice In Chains: Black Gives Way To Blue (heavy as hell, all songs are excellent and while DuVall is not Layne he does a pretty damn good job. Cantrell is singing lead on most songs, but DuVall does a great job whenever his voice is heard. Vocal harmonies are excellent, just as they were in the past. It does sound like Alice In Chains)

Pearl Jam: Backspacer (catchy album with some really energetic songs. Probably Pearl Jam's "happiest" album to date)

I'm really glad that real grunge albums are still being released...

The new Frank Turner is probably my front runner at the moment for album of the year.

I should be getting the new Teenage Bottlerocket and Banner Pilot tomorrow, so i'll see then if I have a new frontrunner.

Big releases that i'm still waiting on is the new Bosstones, Nothington and Off With Their Heads comp.

Definitely The Knob - Call To Arms. No doubt about it. This band gets better and better all the time.

Oh I forgot!
Government Warning - Paranoid Mess LP
Government Warning - Executed EP

Those two records came in summer 2009, and excist only on vinyl.
Government Warning is perhaps the best active hardcore punk band of them all! Such intensity and clever lyrics! If you like '80s hardcore, then you will love GW. Easily, one of my top three bands .

Gee, what a surprise.


I like it and all, but I don't think it's good enough to hold that title.

Sound of Madness - Shinedown
Love it!
21st Century Breakdown - Green Day
I do like American Idiot and Dookie better but 21 Guns blew me away

Not much to say, love the mainstream songs

At the moment, i think that Teenage Bottlerocket may be surpassing Frank Turner for my favorite this year.

I'll be spinning the new Banner Pilot next for the first time, and i'll see if i have yet another favorite.
