top 5's

Ok, it's that time again. I am not giving them ranks, and I have two categories... best things I've heard this year, and best things released this year.

top 5 I've heard...

Art Blakey - Moanin'

hott jazz. Fuck Diana Krall. This is where it's at. Blue note stuff from the late 50's to the late 60's is all killer, but this is a definite highlight.

Polmo Polpo - Like hearts Swelling

Background music made with a mix of live instruments and laptops that will keep you washing dishes at a steady pace. Until the 8 minute mark on track two, which was the moment I saw all of our creator's glory, and how it magically sneaks into all of our lives. Your mileage may vary.

Ten Years After - Live (at the fillmore?? I'm drawing a blank here)

Fucking rock sauce. Tasty rock sauce.

The Kinks - Something else

I was an asshole before I listened to this record (whether or not I am still an asshole is up for debate). There is so much good stuff out there that I haven't listened to based on the fact that I don't dig the radio hits. Layla sucks, and because of that I missed out on a bunch of really good pop songs. FOR SHAME!

Ultramagnetic MC's - Critical Beatdown

Listen to Kool Keith and Ced Gee rhyme about how awesome they are and how much other mc's is whack suckas over stolen funk basslines and awkward scratches.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
top 5 released this year...

Pelican - The fire in our throats will beckon the thaw

Everything prog-rock/heavy metal should have been. Pelican compose beautiful heavy metal songs. COMPOSE. Every note, every beautiful distorted moment has purpose. This is headphone music, and a casual first listen will not do it justice.

Wintersleep - s/t

Well executed Canadian rock and roll, not much more to it.

I'll finish this up tomorrow, work demands my attention. THE NERVE!
