Any new good albums I should look into?

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 

So, I'm getting pretty bored with my music collection right now. Anybody got idea's on a good album that's just came out? I like all music except for rock(I like alt. rock like Radiohead and Animal Collective though.)

Ever listened to Fat Jon? I picked up his most recent album for something like $15 dollars on ebay.
I find his music to be a great listening experience.

How about some free artists? I'll put your "all genres" claim to the test.. My tastes are pretty broad. I like pretty much everything except Crystal Castles... and generic BS like breaking ben/nickelback, etc.


Death Grips are an experimental hip-hop group from Sacramento, California consisting of vocalist Stefan "MC Ride" Burnett and production team Zach Hill and Andy "Flatlander" Morin.

A buddy of mine releases albums under the moniker Oh Look Out.. I really like him, his first album is free and his second one is pretty cheap - http://ohlookout.bandcamp.com/

There are a million free bandcamp artists I could recommend, if you'd like.

Glitchy piano coolness

only one album I really cared for this year for HIp-Hop, that is Nas's Life is Good

 

You get what I can easily identify as an embodiment of true Hip-Hop, except for like one song

Thanks! I do like Death Grips.. I guess I shouldn't have said albums that have just came out, because I've never really looked into the 80's. I'll look at all the bands mentioned, thanks!

Awesome, some of it is really lo-fi.. and a lot of it will probably be hit or miss.. When going through, don't feel bad for deciding you hate something in the first 30 seconds. That's just how it is sometimes :) I definitely think there are some worthwhile artists in there though... I'll update with some more here shortly. I'm just scrolling through my library and picking out artists I remember being free. If I was suggesting all types of music... we'd be in trouble. Maybe consider making a last.fm, that's a decent way to find new artists. http://www.last.fm/user/Langley65

My favorite 80s albums are:


Violent Femmes - Violent Femmes

Sonic Youth - Daydream Nation

Black Flag - Damaged
Dead Kennedys - FrankenChrist

Descendents - Milo Goes To College
Talking Heads - Speaking In Tongues (Probably one of the best mastered albums in my music collection)

Husker Du - Zen Arcade 

Red Hot Chili Peppers - Red Hot Chili Peppers

Ancient Future - Quiet Fire
Beastie Boys - Licensed To Ill

Living Color - Vivid

N.W.A - Straight Outta Compton

Nine Inch Nails - Pretty Hate Machine

Nirvana - Bleach

Pixies - Doolittle

Among others.. Man, there was a lot of good music in the 80s.



This group broke up. What a shame. Punk.
http://spraynard.bandcamp.com/album/funtitled

hip-hop indie pop electronic stuff
http://tvgirl.bandcamp.com/

 

Definitely the best thing to ever come out of lindenwood college (a local college in st. louis)
http://hugevolcanoes.bandcamp.com/

 

Chipt00nz
http://saskrotch.bandcamp.com/album/ill-have-you-naked-by-the-end-of-this-rom

Ambient stuff I really like

If you like Radiohead and Animal Collective, my immediate thoughts were Django Django and Alt-J, both have released great debut albums this year.

Forgot to mention, I'm not really interested in hip-hop.

Yes, they'll probably both end up in my top 10 for 2012.
