The newest Of Montreal album "Lousy in Sylvianbriar" is some really good psych-rock.

Oh man. I was a huge, huge fan of everything of Montreal did from Cherry Peel to Hissing Fauna, but they really lost me with Skeletal Lamping. Hated it, and haven't listened to anything of theirs since. Am I missing some good stuff?
I'll check out the other recommendations - plenty of stuff I've never heard of. Thanks!

I was going to mention TSM but figured they were mostly forgotten about at this point. Which is awful. They were my first (and second, and third) concert and one of my favorite bands of all time too. Now Here is Nowhere is an insanely tight album. Now I'm sad again.

Man, that and Ten Silver Drops were such rad albums and the soundtrack to my college years. Their last album was just okay, but they really lost something when Ben left. Here's a cool song from an album that never was, Ben included.

There's a new St. Vincent song. It's pretty rocky. The album is supposed to be self-titled, and come out this year.

I can't help but love the Marfa film. It's clear what they were going for (modern, American Live at Pompeii), but it's so strange and obviously unfinished. It's got some good moments in it, though, and some entertaining nonsensical subtitles.
The last album has one really great song ("Last Believer") and everything else ranges from okay pop song to "The Walls Are Starting to Crack", which just sounds like a reject from a bad Roger Waters solo album. Phil Karnats isn't that great a guitarist, and his backing vocals just sound off. Ben was really something special.
I could honestly go on about the Secret Machines all day. So glad other people remember/appreciate them.

I saw the Secret Machines from the front row at Bonnaroo and it was an amazing show. Garza was a monster on the drums and this is a band that I will definitely miss. I spun Now Here is Nowhere a few months back and it's still a great, great album.

It's gonna take me awhile to wrap my head around this new stuff. I've already got tickets to see her in April and will be interested to see how this stuff translates live.

MisterWives dropped their debut EP today. It's a 6-song EP; most of the stuff they've had on their Soundcloud, but there's some new stuff there. Mandy Lee makes me think of a peppy Regina Spektor for some reason. Definitely worth a listen.

Just wanted to drop a couple more artists for you guys. I listen to a lot of XM radio and their blog radio sessions always have great new music. Here are a couple that caught my ear during my commute:

Ballet School, this woman's voice is incredible. Crush really feels like something out of the 80's/early 90's. The artists cite The Cure as influences and it's readily obvious. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZgXwvvZNbt4

Sol Cat is really loving rad. I'm sure they're riding the wave of psychedelic sounds coming back into music these days, but that's not a bad thing. It's mellow, but not slow. I really dig the raspy vocals. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8tOl0KC_VLc

Courtney Barnett, when I first heard her song Avant Gardner I didn't really like it. It's probably because I tuned in mid way and I really think this track is something you need to hear from the beginning to end for the first time before making any judgments. I enjoy her lyrics a lot, they're clever and light hearted. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bcnIhzaDTd0

Does anyone know Royal Canoe? They're a relatively new band from Winnipeg that's been touring a ton the last couple years. They released they're first full length "Today We're Believers" last year and they're going to be doing a North American tour with Bombay bicycle Club this spring. Hard to describe their sound but its a lot of fun.

Mike believed in the shooting star, the orgastic future that year by year recedes before us. It eluded us then,but that's no matter. Tomorrow we will run faster, stretch out our arms farther... and then one fine morning-
So we beat on, subs against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past.


Not sure if this falls under this thread or not, but is anyone going to see Bomb the Music Industry's final show on Sunday? Or the show before the final show tomorrow night?

Lead singer must of had singing lessons, sadly. Chorus comes in strong, and the music is tight which sounds great overall. Trademark lows come at the end of the song, so theres hope.

Loving this and everything else new they played the two times I caught them in the fall. His voice sounds much better now and I hope the album keeps this vibe throughout.

I enjoy it, but I think they're really under-utilizing his awesome voice compared to their first album. It's About Time is still my hands down favourite from the new album and that song absolutely owns. Mind Over Matter is a good one as well. The rest, while good, don't have the same kind of catch to them compared to a lot of the songs on the first one.

That said, still a solid album.

Yeah so like, anyone have any opinions on the new (or care at all about) Xiu Xiu? I've listened to Angel Guts: Red Classroom maybe six or seven times in the past few days. It's heavy, slow, terrifying and almost totally lacking in melody. So all in all it's a really good Xiu Xiu album.

Yeah, I think it's their best album in a while, and the best album I've heard this year so far. I love how intense and dark this album is, especially on tracks like "El Naco" and "Cinthya's Unisex". It reminds me of Suicide's debut album, if every song were as terrifying as "Frankie Teardrop".

Probably not... his style varies so much on each song that a lot of people find it hit or miss. I tend to like it though.

Not really sure where else to post this outside of making a thread specifically for it, but is anyone else seeing The Hold Steady on this tour? I'm pumped for the Cleveland show. First time I saw them I had only been listening to them for a week (it was a charity show that I was really going to for Titus Andronicus), and had only listened to Separation Sunday and Boys and Girls in America. Listening to Almost Killed Me right now and Stay Positive later.
