Jenny Owen Youngs - Transmitter Failure: Such potential for the future, but misses the mark a few too many times.
Yesterdays New Quintet - Yesterday's Universe: Not as charismatic as the debut, but good enough.
XO Skeletons - Bored By Heaven: Of all Wes Eisold's post-American Nightmare output, this is my favorite.
X - Los Angeles: A punk rock classic for a reason.
Wilco - Wilco: Fun pop/rock record that comes across like a soundtrack to a summer.
Wasted Youth UK - Wild And Wandering: A little too mopey for everyday listening, but quality post-punk, proto-goth.
M. Ward - Hold Time: His best collection of songs yet.
Kurt Vile - God Its Saying This To You: Is unmemorable a word?
The Veils - Sun Gangs: Pick a band to rip off and then do it well. Not poorly of several.
Various - Dark Was The Night: Outstanding sequencing considering the eclectic mix and thirty one tracks. Even without considering.
Various - Carry The Torch: Makes me miss Kid Dynamite.
Various - Once OST: Fantastic music from a fantastic movie.
Various - Experiments In Audio Rocketry: Awesome collection of acoustic punk without a terrible track.
Two Tongues - Two Tongues: Underwhelming results from an interesting concept.
Two Gallants - The Throes: Mildly disappointing follow-up nc
Trial - Darkest Days: As expected, nowhere near as good as Are These Our Lives
Title Fight - Last Thing You Forget: Solid melodic hardcore from a band still trying to find its footing.
Thursday - Common Existence: Not enough up-front incentive to commit to a long-term relationship.
Thrice - Beggars: Someone's been listening to a lot of Radiohead and TV on the Radio. That's a good thing nv
This Charming Man - Every Little Secret: Pre-Gaslight anthem that's a little rough around the edges, but more than listenable.
Telepathic Butterflies -Introducing: Psychedelic pop as expected from a band called Telepathic Butterflies.
Tear It Up - Nothing To Nothing: Musical taste is dictated largely by time and place. I listened to this hardcore album at the right time.
Taking Back Sunday - New Again: A good starting point for the second (third?) part of their career.
Super Furry Animals - Dark Days: I was bored, uninterested and felt uninvolved.
