New Discoveries

A Tribe Called Quest - Midnight Marauders (1993)
Midnight Marauders
1990s Discovery of Q1 2010

Yeah wow holy shit. I've always heard of Quest but never checked them out till this year. These guys are just awesome and are my new favorite hip hop act. I'm getting a huge new love for hip hop now that I listen to the words instead of just the producing.

Choice Track: Electric Relaxation


Orbital - Orbital 2 (1993)
Orbital 2

I checked these guys out because there name was pretty high up on the Coachella lineup and they've been around a while. This is a really great electronic album, I enjoy it a lot.

Choice Track: Monday


Jay Reatard - Blood Visions (2006)
Blood Visions
2000s Discovery of Q1 2010

So when Jay Reatard died in January I did the bandwagon thing to do and finally checked him out...and he's definitely not what I was expecting. I guess I was expecting something indie/accoustic/boring and it was the complete opposite - it's punk music and it's fucking awesome. I really love this one.

Choice Track: Oh! It's Such A Shame


Vampire Weekend - Vampire Weekend (2008)
Vampire Weekend

Yeah this is pretty good. I prefer this to Contra, which is also good.

Choice Track: Walcott


Owen Pallett - Heartland (2010)
Heartland
2010 Discovery of Q1 2010

I went into pretty good detail on this dude recently but yeah, I fucking love this album.

Choice Track: Lewis Takes Action


Jon Lajoie - You Want Some Of This (2010)
You Want Some Of This

I found this guy through youtube. He's pretty hilarious. He parodies and celebrates rap, real life, sex, and other shit. Good stuff. Also I think this is now the worst album cover that I have.

Choice Track: Everyday Normal Guy 2


Gorillaz - Plastic Beach (2010)
Plastic Beach

I've always been semi-interested in the Gorillaz - I happen to think that Feel Good Inc is one of the best songs of the decade. Their two previous albums just didn't WOW me from start to finish like this one did though.

Choice Track: Empire Ants
