I liked elements of Hissing Fauna's darker tone and I think that 'The Past is a Grotesque Animal' is a really impressive piece, but that gaudy production style they have been using since Satanic Panic is like nails on a chalkboard. And songs like 'Suffer for Fashion' and especially 'Bunny Ain't No Kind of Rider' exemplify all of the most dismal qualities of oM 2.0. It's definitely the least awful since Aldhils, but I still can't stand it.

I played my ooooold copy of The Gay Parade, the groove is so worn down you'd think I'd been using a rusty nail for a stylus. Hehe. But yeah, what happened to the golly-gee storytelling and the vaudeville? It's a fuckin' crime. Boo, Georgie Fruit. Boo.
1. Shabazz Palaces - Black Up 2. Panda Bear - Tomboy 3. Battles - Gloss Drop 4. Gang Gang Dance - Eye Contact 5. Grouper - A I A 6. Cut Copy - Zonoscope 7. The Antlers - Burst Apart 8. Peaking Lights - 936 9. Kurt Vile - Smoke Rings for My Halo 10. Fleet Foxes - Helplessness Blues
damn good list. I imagine that Black Up and Burst Apart will end up on my list but I've been avoiding both since last I checked the leaks were still pretty low quality. I did listen to black up one time and it sounded fucking nuts. I really wasn't that thrilled with the battles album though...
I have fallen head over heals in love with that battles album. I liked their eps slightly more than mirrored at first because I loved their instrumental songs. I just like getting lost in it. But to each there own.
Ew. I love of Montreal, I even liked False Priest. But that EP was terrible.
Phew. It's a good thing we're not talking about something as subjective as music.....oh wait. I'm not saying it's their best work, but I'm still enjoying it. I haven't spent a lot of time looking into new albums this year so my list is subject to change.
