    The last record to totally blow my mind was Converge's Jane Doe.

    I was really hesitant to listen to it because of the way that Converge fans are... violent bros, basically. But this album is just so fucking great. It's a sad album, it's an aggressive album, it's a metal album, it's a punk album. The lyrics are impressive, but the vocal delivery is what sells them. I don't even think he says most of the words that he wrote.



    A few songs:
    Concubine (the first song on the record, just so mindblowingly intense): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gIB9Cai5kZ4&feature=fvst
    Distance And Meaning (this song gets so brutal at 0:58ish): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fXUzxbC6qDg

    Fuck yeah, this album.

    Totally agree with Jane Doe, I gotta grab more of their stuff.

    I think the last one to really blow my mind was Only in Dreams by Dum Dum Girls. Such catchy songs, just enough melody and noise to balance eachother out to give it a real rich sound. Then Dee Dee's voice is just so pretty, I want her to sing to me all day, she wouldn't even need to sing words most of the time. They were awesome last night at the paradise to. Sounds just like the album.
    fuck fuck shit fuck

    I really, really like that EP. Nice to hear Skiba play some straight forward melodic punk.

    Awesome power-pop, with incredibly depressing lyrics. What's not to love. These guys are slowly becoming one of my favorite bands out there.

    More awesome rock'n'roll with a punk influence.

    Cloud Nothings - Attack on Memory


    My friend played the album for me once, and I just HAD to get the album. I think it is great and I can't stop listening to it. I rarely enjoy hipstershit, but this just struck me. I like how the songs are calm, yet the vocalist is shouting sort of.

    These dudes never disappoint: it's a pity they often get overlooked compared to their fellow "celtic" punk peers, especially since they've been around a lot longer than them. Like their last record, this one is very clean and has a big pop influence, but it suits the songs perfectly. And the lyrics are scattered with obscure Canadian historical references, so what's not to love?

    Not much to say about this one other than that it just hits me at a deeper level than most music does these days. Post-rockish but also folk-ish and just generally good, soft, nature-y music. Like if the most beautiful, lush rainforest, the morning after a night storm, were compressed into sound - this would be it.

    A Flash Flood of Colour by Enter Shikari. They're doing something that's totally different from everyone else, and it's amazing. The way they're able to blend all of the various genres they incorporate coherently, and then add meaningful, thought-provoking, lyrics is incredible.

    Top 3 songs:
    (If you don't like the first one, check the other ones out anyway, because they're all different)

    Arguing With Thermometers

    System.../...Meltdown

    Stalemate

    So fucking good: one of the best newer UK bands out there.

    Indie rock with a huge punk influence: reminds me a lot of Silent Alarm era Bloc Party.
