I adore the new "LCD Soundsystem" record. Every album they make gets better and better. My fiend burned me a copy of the CD and I patiently waited to get the vinyl release. My local record store got it in August.....but it was worth the wait!!!
I also love the new Black Keys. Although I like "Attack and Release" a LITTLE bit more.
Also the new Wavves "King of the Beach" is great. I LOVE lo-fi, but FINALLY this album is very listenable. And Jay Reatard's old backing band is on the album. It sounds great.
Also the new National is grrrrreat.
And of course Arcade Fire's "Suburbs". If you have not heard it yet....hear it. It's majestic.
I also got King's of Leon's new album "Come Around Sundown" early. SO far I like it. Better than their last for SURE. If you're a fan of them you will enjoy it. It's a little more southern and country (not in a bad way). I like it.
It will still never beat "Youth and Young Manhood." If you haven't heard THAT album. Get it. It's very good. Raw Rock 'n' Roll.
That's all for now.
