As long as there has been music there has been just as much crappy music as good. I love new music myself, but that may be because I've been listening to:
Julianna Barwick-Florine EP. This woman is amazing. Her music is a hypnotic mesh of vocals, imagine Fennesz as a female singer and you've got a basic idea of Barwick's music, it's sad that her jams are going overlooked by most. Her music is very ambient, but her beautiful vocals give the music an intense emotional power, and she isn't afraid to use unconventional vocal techniques, some of her vocals almost sound like animal noises. The Florine EP has more to offer than many fully length records and is for certain a recommended listen.
Nosaj Thing-Drift. Drift is an album that comes at you from all directions, full of synths that sound like they're bouncing off of hard, shiny surfaces, and hard, metallic drums. He's been compared ad nauseam to his fellow Californian Flying Lotus, but I question the validity of this comparison, seeing as Nosaj Thing has much more space in his music. Also different from FlyLo is Nosaj's emphasis on melody, whether said melody so minimalist as to seem unfinished (Coat Of Arms), or skewed and almost arrhythmic (Light #1). The twelve tracks of Drift make an impressive sonic statement, and I can't wait to see what Nosaj Thing will do next.
Oneida-Rated O. Whenever I talk to non music dork friends about the noisier records I've been listening to, they always seem preturbed that I'd want to do so much "work" when it comes to listening to music, often, they can't imagine how what I'm describing could be enjoyable. Rated O is not a record I can see creating this confusion, for, noisy as it is, every track develops a deep, murky, irresistible groove, and the tunes are all over the map stylistically, so the record is impossible to get bored with (but it doesn't come off as fragmented or thrown-together). I could never get into Oneida before, but with Rated O, they've won a new fan.
So, what have you been into recently?
