That Maccabees album is so good, as are A Wilhem Scream.

For me, this week has been all about:
Built to Spill
Magnetic Fields
The Head and the Heart
Scott Walker
Big K.R.I.T.

Listening to these all week:
Great album, so much stuff going on

Feel bad it leaked so early:

Never listened to these guys before their ep:

Classic:

Good, without Kyle I would have never checked this out:

Fang Island - S/T



And Enter Shikari's new album is pretty good.

It's a Brand New week for sure. I'm just wondering when we'll see some new material from them. Also Say Anything's ...Is A Real Boy and The Shins's Wincing the Night Away.

No money for new games so playing this:

Pianos Become the Teeth
NOFX
Into It. Over It.
Polar Bear Club
Defeater


Can anyone give me some bands that sound like Pianos Become the Teeth and Defeater...but not La Dispute?


I would recommend Funeral Diner and City of Caterpillar as a couple older bands, and more recent bands I would say Former Theives and Xerxes. Also take a look at Worker.

jawlessbody 01/15/12 08:25 AM

The Dead Kennedys
Black Flag
Modest Mouse
Mumford and Sons

neo506 01/15/12 08:38 AM

I wanted one so bad, but my brother got me a Griffin shirt, should hold me over for a while.

Digging all the improvements so far in 2012

Recommendation: Everything Elliott Smith and Modest Mouse

and of Montreal's new album and all their albums since Satanic Panic

I've already done that, haha. I went through all 3 Stargate series, Doctor Who, 3rd Rock From the Sun, Futurama, The Office, The Big Bang Theory, Dragon Ball Z, Eureka, Warehouse 13, Avatar: The Last Airbender, Parks and Recreation, and I'm probably forgetting a couple of shows that are on my external HDD.

Now, I have about 3 episodes of The Office to catch up on, then I'm out of TV shows to follow and have to pick a new one. I'll probably watch the latest season of Warehouse 13, then I have to pick between one of the shows I already have downloaded--24, Battlestar Galactica, Planet Earth, Married...With Children, and Firefly. I've watched way too much shit.

It's the best Call of Duty so far anyway. MW3 is just bad, haha.

Same here. Just finished Louie season 1, heard season 2 tops it. Got American Nightmare, Nikita and Chuck waiting

Awesome, heavy hardcore with thoughtful subject matter and sick, dynamic guitar tones. FFO 108, Disembodied, Unbroken

Slept hard on this album. Great little addition to their pretty solid catalog of engaging post-metal/rock. Circling, spacey and energetic. FFO Cave In, Pelican

Picture a younger Isaac Brock fronting Explosions in the Sky. It's kinda like that. Pretty cool stuff.

Running through the series, up to here now. Shit's getting wacky.

Is Envy and Modern Life Is War (respectively) too obvious?
