I know it's only March, but I am curious. Mine would have to be this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=90y9PjNa2vw followed closely by this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MVgEaDemxjc
I think I Got A Woman may be my favourite track off that record, especially when the French spoken word sample comes in and he loops the last word:
thank you thank you for introducing me to Nicolas Jaar. What a dude.
But it's this: http://g-side.bandcamp.com/track/came-up-feat-s-l-a-s-h
But again, good shout - my favourite off that record is probably Y U Mad: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_2p11fQlhkM
...although Im Sorry :( is incredible as well.
although, I'm listening pretty hard to Broken Ear Recrod by Black Dice this week and I'd be hard pushed to find an album I've enjoyed more this year.
CLICKING YOUR FUCKING LINKS. CAN YOU AT LEAST FUCKING POST THE ARTIST AND TITLE IN YOUR POST?
The first link is 'Albatross' by Wild Beasts and the second is 'The Wilhelm Scream' by James Blake.
click the fucking link. listen to the fucking song. make the decision: do i fucking like this? fucking roll eyes or download/buy song and enjoy. or just avoid threads with fucking links.
and then, I dunno, maybe that Peaking Lights song
'that Peaking Lights song'? All of them?
I couldn't remember it's name and was too sleepy to do anything about it
to clarify: 'Tiger Eyes (Laid Back)'
Still haven't heard the LP but it should be coming in the post.... soon
Can't seperate the two to be honest but they are both staggering and make me incredibly excited about their respective upcoming records.
Hip Love: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PGJKA5GUV4s
Lady Luck: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0-W__3GRS8o
I could probably list a fair few though.
hadn't heard either of those before and they're both real good!
these could also be my choices.

Mexican Grand Prix (Mogwai)
Slow Peels (Com Truise)

a new McGuire release?
Don't have the faintest which of his 5000 solo albums with a limited edition of 5 CDRs it's actually from. But I first heard it this year. I don't tend to give a hoot which year things are released (although the other 9 are from this year, I think?)
Came out of nowhere but have listened to it a few times everyday since it popped up.
one of the guys from gobble gobble who have come up with some of my favourite tracks fromt the last couple of years
and dustin o'halloran to chill me out
One's pefect morning music and the other's great for winding down haha
Lumiere's probably been one of my favourite pieces of music so far this eyar
that and 'near the parenthesis - japanese for beginners' are my favourite calming albums of 2011 so far. and definitely looking forward to more from purity ring
probably either Blue Eyes
or Suicide Demo for Kara Walker
Tyler, The Creator - Yonkers
Jamie xx vs GSH - I'll Take Care Of U
Toro Y Moi - New Beat
Smith Westerns - Dye The World
The Go! Team - Back Like 8 Track
Adele - Rolling In The Deep (Jamie xx Shuffle)
Joy O - Sicko Cell [grew and grew on me]
since I've been listening to a lot of music from last year recently (Rose Kemp's - Golden Shroud is a bit brilliant)
Mogwai - Death Rays
or Radiohead - Codex
or PJ Harvey - All and Everyone
or maybe even Explosions in the Sky - Trembling Hands
no but he's got another one out now, it doesn't shout footcrab all over it though :( It is however one of my fave 2011 trax so far so here you go: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qBOmEvGVM70 Sexual.
I've done one, what a loser.
Not everything is there, obvs.
Infatuation - Being used for the US version of Skins on MTV - I LOVE this song:
Snowing - Why Am I Not Going Underwater?

Rubber by Yuck
Yeah, obvious I know but fuck off if you've got a cunting problem with it you shithead.
Belong - Come See
Peaking Lights - Marshmallow Yellow
Disappears - Revisiting
i'd probably go for still new by the smith westerns
or jejune stars by bright eyes
and the new Battles song. Yonkers is better, so that.
some of that is fantastic. one of those songs then.
'Meatman, Piano Tuner, Prostitute' and surely the best name of a song
