Book time. Che Guevara: A Revolutionary Life
Amusement Parks On Fire - Road Eyes: Much better than sophomore release, but eons away from debut.
Walkmen - Lisbon: I was wondering why this flew under the radar and now I know. Certainly has its moments though.
Violent Femmes - Violent Femmes: An underrated classic.
Two Door Cinema Club - Tourist History: Outstanding album that was over far too quickly.
Tapes 'n' Tapes - Outside: Same band, more meh.
Sufjan Stevens - Age Of Adz: I'm sure I will grow to love new Sufjan, but right now I miss old Sufjan.
Sleigh Bells - Treats: More engaging than some contemporaries but not enough to hold my attention despite a few great tracks.
River City Extension - ...And The Unmistakable Man: The best indie/folk/pop/rock/whatever you're not listening to.
The Riot Before - Rebellion: Yet another example of how much really good punk there is.
Portal. The Man - American Ghetto: Subversively enjoyable.
Off With Their Heads - In Desolation: Australia is very lucky to see these guys with Against Me!.
Of Montreal - False Priest: Lacking in charisma.
None More Black - Icons: Disappointing.
Nightmares For A Week - A Flood Tomorrow: Excellent EP reminiscent of Get Up Kids just after Something before Wire.
New Pornographers - Together: Solid album but I wish it was a little more energetic.
The National - High Violet: Keep waiting for that penultimate album to really grab me.
Menzingers - Chamberlain Waits: More catchy-without-being-poppy punk from what is an increasingly consistent band.
Make Do And Mend - End Measured Mile; What hard rock could, and should have been. #notNickelback
Hostage Calm - Hostage Calm: Not sure what type of band they want to be, but this wasn't it.
Gorillaz - Plastic Beach: Just not my cup of tea.
Fresh and Onlys - Play It Strange: Shoegazey with potential.
Fake Problems - Real Ghosts Caught On Tape: Great Songs Caught On CD.
Drake - Thank Me Later: Good but overhyped blend R&B and rap without coddling one for the other.
Deerhunter - Halcyon Digest: Perfect soundtrack to a blizzard.
Dead Mechanical - Addict Rhythms: Fantastic working class punk that belongs on a Best Of list from last year.
Das Racist - Sit Down, Man: Avant garde hip-hop that requires repeat listens.
David Cross - Bigger And Blackerer: His funniest album yet.
Elvis Costello - National Ransom: A couple of slower tracks detract from an otherwise solid album.
Caribou - Swim: Gave up after 2 songs. I am not the right demographic as I just don't get it.
Big Boi - Sir Luscious Left Foot: Almost passed on what is likely the best hip-hop album of last year.
Avi Buffalo - Avi Buffalo: Infectiously addictive or grating. Time will tell.
Ariel Pink - Before Today: Unsure of where to begin, but 5am is too early to listen to this album.
Ra Ra Riot - The Orchard: Sophomore slump indeed.
Ghostface Killah - Apollo Kids: Is there a more consistent artist in hip-hop?
Fiya - Magic Words: Solid album of Hot Water-inspired punk rock.
