I don't know...I just don't know. The first thing that popped into my head listening to "Here We Go" was this sounds like the Fox and the Hound soundtrack.

New Bad Religion streaming on Youtube. Overall I like it. It's definitely a more stripped down, more direct album than they have been doing.

Everyone's heard of Night Moves by now, right? Because it's so good.

I've officially bought my ticket to board the A$AP Rocky hype train.

I'm so sorry.

So I found this group randomly on Youtube called The Twelves, and I guess it's two Brazilian dudes who do a bunch of remixes. I really like their stuff, but they don't have any, like, albums. Or EPs. Or anything. I'm assuming since nearly everything of theirs is a remix and it's a licensing problem or something. But, I mean...come on. I don't want to give money to have this on my iPod. This is kind of awful. But this? Uh, yes please.

Some of their stuff is on a few random ass compilation albums, and some stuff is on their Myspace (which, yes, apparently still exists...you can log in to it using your Facebook info, which is fucking hilarious), and there's Youtube too.

But there's no way you can just buy any of this stuff. iTunes has, like, two of their songs as part of a compilation album. It's a shame because I would like to give them moneys plz so I can have it on my iPod/away from my computer, but I can't. Argh.

Myspace still exists almost exclusively for musicians, because it provides them with an effort-free website that has a built-in music player. I can't stand the fucking place, and I'm always pissed off when a good band has Myspace as their only web site. It's like, haven't you guys ever heard of Bandcamp?

I can't listen to those at work, but can you suggest an album of theirs to listen to? I'll fire it up in Grooveshark while I work.

You know what? I honestly believe Beach House's Bloom might be my favorite album since Turn on the Bright Lights (my GAOAT), and i've listened to that one like literally 400 times.

I just discovered a band called North Atlantic Oscillation. Someone recommended them to me because I am a big fan of Porcupine Tree. I'm kicking myself for not find them myself sooner. I currently have both of their albums on repeat and have for about 2 weeks now. Really excellent stuff. Kind of a soup of modern progressive rock, pop and synth/electronic. Thought provoking but catchy.

They have two albums, Grappling Hooks and Fog Electric. Both excellent.

Not sure what thread to put this in really, but Major Scaled is a fun project: they modify songs from minor to major scales digitally. So far, they've done Nothing Else Matters, Riders on the Storm, Losing My Religion and Minor Swing. If nothing else, the quality of work is great, and I honestly think that the songs work this way too.

When I sat down to listen to Channel Orange, I was not expecting to hear a Dragon Ball Z reference.

So Dan Deacon and Animal Collective are coming in concert together on March 23rd! It's like somebody said "gee, what would Behemoth's ideal concert pairing be?" Needless to say I am extra, super stoked.

Well, the first album I haven't listened to (apparently Behemoth likes it?), and I guess it was just the lead guy working on his own...and the other two are both good but vastly different. The second one (Nights Out) is really...energetic, but kind of spastic and unpolished and just strange. I like it, but it's a YMMV thing. I'd recommend The English Riviera. It's just some good ol' electro pop music.

Upon further reflection, it's really good, but too same-y. They also put their best three tracks as the first three tracks, so it's literally all downhill from there. Still really good though. I basically listened to it non-stop for two weeks or so, which is a sign of how good it is. But it's so low key and relaxing that now I have this insatiable desire for uptempo dance music. It's like I lost two weeks to an extended acid trip, and now I need to get revved up on caffiene/crank/whatever and go get a ton of shit done. But, like, in music form.

It's not all great (Love Underlined, ugh), but most of it is some really nice, low-key synth music, which is just what I was looking for. I'll check out some of their other albums later.

It sounds like a Mumford and Sons song.

That's probably my favorite song on the album. It's pretty good as a whole but I'm not in love with it or anything.

Funny, I think I almost like it better that way.

Sounds like I may like the album more than you do!

Out Come The Wolves is one of the best albums of the last twenty five years. If you disagree you are wrong.

All joking aside, it made me realize how much the mp3 single driven era has caused bands to get lazy, The rock album and I can remember to be this solid all the way through with literally no filler would be The Suburbs, and before that?

True fact: Out Come The Wolves is the first CD I bought with my very own money. Although I don't listen to Rancid that much anymore (or really, punk rawk in general), I totally agree: all killer, no filler.

EDIT: Also, to respond to your implicit question, you totally need to check out The Monitor by Titus Andronicus - no filler material on that album either.

The Suburbs is stuffed with filler, though. I think it's a much better album if you leave off "Rococo", "Half Light I", "Wasted Hours" and "Deep Blue".

For no filler, I'd say Japandroids' Celebration Rock from just last year certainly counts.
