"They say the classics never go out of style, but they do... they do. Somehow baby, I never thought we'd do, too."
Adam PfleiderMetz' self-titled; Cloakroom's Cloakroom I: The Power of Suggestion; Code Orange Kids' Love is Love // Return to Dust; You should be following Jeremy's blog and his "Album of the Day" feature.
Dre OkorleyI couldn't be prouder of Kendrick Lamar's good kid, m.A.A.d. city. It's one of the only hip hop albums I've bought in a very long time. Check out our latest staff interview, too.
Gregory Robson Cloud Atlas is a pretty thought-provoking film, and Mike Dillon gives new meaning to the word punk-jazz.
Deborah RemusGo see Marianas Trench if you get the chance. They put on one of the best arena shows I've attended so far.
BlakeI'm listening to King Tuff's self-titled record for the first time in a while. Love his yelpy snottiness and americana-inspired tunes. Other than that Depatures' upcoming album Teenage Haze is going to be just the thing for people who like creative hardcore/scream-y tunes. Haunting jams on that one.
Kelly DohertySaw Beach House last night; definitely recommend them live, Ramshackle Glory's Who Are Your Friends Gonna Be? is a joy and I've been reacquainting myself with Arcade Fire due to the excitement of new album news.

I woke up, it's raining outside, and the only song that came to mind was Get Up Kids' "Valentine"
and Deaf Havana's Fools and Worthless Liars Deluxe Edition.

This week was actually a pretty good summary of my music taste overall

I also had a ton of Kendrick Lamar plays that didn't scrobble for some reason

Basement - colourmeinkindness - This record is so good and I finally checked it out thanks to Adam's review and seeing him post about it. Don't sleep on this record.

Secret Smoker- Terminal Architecture - Excellent emotional hardcore record. I have been spinning this non-stop lately. The song I link to "Crushed By Air" gives me chills, reminds me of the first time I heard Bear vs. Shark.

Ladder Devils - Nowhere Plans - Ladder Devils features half of The Minor Times, a band that was considered legendary in my hometown. The technicality of the Minor Times is still there, but the tempo is a little slower and the overall sound is grittier. If you like Harkonen, Young Widows and These Arms Are Snakes, then this is a record you are going to want to check out.

Olive Drab- Girl EP - Members of Pirouette, Snowing, Hightide Hotel. Download this record for free on their bandcamp if you like any of those bands.
