Múm - Yesterday Was Dramatic - Today Is OK

One of the best experimental electronic albums, if not one of the best albums ever recorded.

Psychic Ills - Dins and Early Violence

Psychic Ills - Dins

Dins is a heavy rock album with droney noise here and there.

Psychic Ills - Early Violence

Early Violence is a romp through slow metal riffs accompanied by groggy old drum machines.

Squarepusher - Just a Souvenir

Very fun electronic album which, upon listening to the first few minutes, reminded me of the Rainbow Road music from Mario Kart on SNES...

...in a very, very good way.

Pt. 1
Pt. 2

Electric President - Sleep Well

A somewhat original approach to electronic indie pop music, however, this album contains some departures from my slight prejudiced labeling.

I find it difficult and a little painful to try and accurately describe music without doing the music in question proper justice. I'd rather you simply take my word for it when I say that this is an above average album, download it, listen to it, and hopefully purchase it.

Please do.

Cyann & Ben - Spring

A gathering together of a dash of post-rock and some soft indie pop, kind of, yields an album like "Spring."

An album with vocals that actually compliment the music.

Common Eider, King Eider - Figs, Wasps, and Monotremes

Ex-Deerhoof human being Rob Fisk streaks the canvas with jagged noise behind a carefully woven silk drapery of stringed instruments.

Vanilla color.

Tobacco - Fucked Up Friends

Honestly, this is one of the best albums I've listened to recently. Every single song is very awesome.

Tobacco is the solo project of Tobacco from Black Moth Super Rainbow. Although I haven't listened to Black Moth Super Rainbow at all recently, this hip-hop oriented album is mind-blowing. "Fucked Up Friends" is, esentially, a hip-hop version of Black Moth Super Rainbow, and it is wonderful.

It is very simple, but still quite, quite beautiful.

So - So

So is a collaboration between Markus Popp and Eriko Toyoda. This album is poppy noisy electronic music.

Peaceful electronic waves.

Haino Keiji & Yoshida Tatsuya - Uhrfasudhasdd

Another fabulous noise album with interesting structure.

And awesome song titles.

DISCLAIMER: The files misspell "Tatsuya." If you download this album, keep that in mind and make sure you correct that mistake.

にせんねんもんだい - Neji/Tori

Said in English, "Nisennemondai," this noise rock album has interesting structure.

Chaos theory noise rock.

Ikue Mori - Myrninerest

Electronics tangled with traditional instrument--instruments whose purpose was lost and fail to harness one particular moment, thus rendering themselves lost in time, traveling both forward and backward.

Trust me, its good.

Hella - Hold Your Horse Is

Classic heavy math pop rock.

Zero vox, infinite fun.

Ólafur Arnalds - Eulogy for Evolution

No noise, no rock.

Just pleasant piano and some strings.

Thurston Moore and My Cat Is An Alien - From the Earth to the Spheres

Slams of piano keys.

And some drum machine here and there.

Zomes - Zomes

Lo-fi rock with a touch of ambient sprinkled on top.
