I live in the past where 90% of my music are from the 20th century. What are you listening to among the latest albums/CDs? I like acoustic/rock/jazz music myself.

I would recommend Elbow's The Seldom Seen Kid (2008).  It has consistently been one of my favorites since I found it a few months after its release.  Elbow released their latest album, build a rocket boys!, a few weeks ago, but I would start with The Seldom Seen Kid.
 
On the folk side, I would also recommend Ray LaMontagne's Trouble (stayed in my CD player for 2 months one time, it's that good), Fleet Foxes' self-titled debut, and Bon Iver's For Emma, Forever Ago.
 
The Black Keys' Attack and Release is another good one.

I just bought the 2011 24bit release from Rush' Moving Pictures, but that's not exactly a new album

With regards to Elbow, just get all of it, now.
 
I just got the new album from TV on the Radio, seems a bit hit and miss on first listen but I'll give it more chance before judging it fully!

I saw them do a pretty hot live performance of a few tracks from Caym a few weeks ago. Very interesting music with some stellar musicians. I saw their piano player in some improv sets around New Years and I was extremely impressed. (And of course Cyro Baptista is astonishing, that's a given.)   Although I have to say I liked Volume 16 even more... one of my favorites of last year.
 
I think the last album I bought was "Hothouse Stomp," by the Ghost Train Orchestra. A project by a local musician I've been following for a few years. Old school jazz brought to life in the 21st century. Really fun music. They popped to the top of the Amazon jazz chart after they were featured on NPR recently: http://www.npr.org/2011/04/07/135045403/brian-carpenter-eclectic-jazz-rooted-in-americana

+1 Loving the album after several listens. 


I remember when I first heard Fleet Foxes right after their debut album came out. What a great discovery! I never thought they would become so huge. But I think they deserve all the attention they're getting.
 
Also listening to Iron & Wine - Kiss Each Other Clean. Not loving this album quite so much.
