Some nice best-of-the-year choices so far. I'll post mine shortly too. :thumbsup:

And since it's customary to hear Sleigh Bells in mid-to-late December...

^Yay, I heard this on the radio this morning :drool:

Thats a good thing no? :ninja: I still get giddy whenever I discover new finds :)
If you plan to listen to "The Antlers" I suggest you start off with "Hospice" The album as a whole is utterly brilliant in my opinion and simply drift away blissfully. The best song to demonstrate that being "Bear"

:yes:
Thanks for sharing - I like it a lot :ddr:

Some new Radiohead :heart:

Two leftovers from Radiohead's recordings for The King Of Limbs have found their way online. The tracks are said to feature on the band's recently filmed From The Basement session, which will be released early next year.

Any particular opinion on Wild Things, M*? I haven't had the chance to sit down and listen to it properly (it's such a soft, delicate album and I'm always listening on a noisy bus <_<) but I had the feeling they couldn't have done too badly given the how epic Two Dancers was.

I'd say 'Two Dancers' is maybe 5% more of a masterpiece but generally, I think 'Smother' stacks up pretty well - quite different hearing Hayden and Tom singing in harmony when they usually trade off vocals. Both albums were criminally under-appreciated though, as is the band in general. :/

01. Beach House - Teen Dream

I half-jokingly called this my album of 2010 way back in January and not only have I not heard anything that tops it, I'm still obsessed with it almost a full year later. I'd even go so far as to say that it's become an all-time favourite.

You did it again :laugh:

99% sure that I've just heard my album of 2011. Marry me, Anna Calvi! :drool:

Puts a lot of pressure on January 2012 now :ninja:

There's a few albums due out this month that I'm quite looking forward to, though I'll be surprised if lightning strikes three times. No pressure, January 2012... :laugh:

That was awesome! :clap: Thanks for posting.

For me, the only drawback was the guy that sang the first verse. I don't think he captured the emotion of the song very well, but he still did a decent job.
