2009 was a pretty solid year for music; with releases such as Fuck Buttons - Tarot Sport; The Flaming Lips - Dark Side Of The Moon; Mumford And Sons; Volcano Choir; Grizzly Bear - Veckatimest; Animal Collective - Merriweather Post Pavillion; Toro Y Moi - My Touch; The Dirty Projectors; Girls; Bon Iver; Lawrence ... Etc etc.

2010 has already been discussed - It came along with a lot of late releases (Q4) that blew everything from the start of the year out of the water...

But we're only two months in 2011 and there have already been some astounding releases:

Destroyer - Kaputt

There are also some massive releases this year, including Daft Punk's 4th studio album, Panda Bear, Radiohead, Yndi Halda, The Shins (here's hopeing, been on hold because of fucking Broken Bells); Explosions In The Sky.

Honestly cannot wait.

Zonoscope was an excellent album, but to be honest, I dislike destroyer's style and after listening to their album, Tennis seems meh.

That said, new albums coming out from The Strokes, The Kooks, Radiohead, Daft Punk and EITS make this look like a really good year.

all of these artists have been around for fucking years

Does that mean all artists only have one good album to offer and that is their first?

No, it's the material they recorded on 8-track before you even heard of them. Sheesh.

Never heard of any of them myself.  I have heard of James Blake but never heard any of his music.  Ive never been up to date with music and doubt I will buy any of the stuff listed above, but I think music is getting better again.  So hopefully 2011 will be a good year.

it has nothing to do with that at all. it's just nothing is 'new' or 'exciting'. better year than 2010? it's all unoriginal stuff!

but then people just like to hype all these albums because they're finally on the bandwagon and like to feel 'involved' in a 'scene'.

Over reaction. lol. How dare a poster have an opinion on good music!
You sound like one of those "They where brilliant when not many people knew off them, now they are popular they are shit" crowd.

I hope you are also referring to yourself here. There's no way you have heard everything before anyone else, and "listened to them before you had even heard of them".

I'm pretty sure you've hopped on a fair share of bandwagons yourself.

The fact that people are discovering great artists a bit behind schedule shouldn't be frowned upon, like you do. "You have no right to listen to this and like it, because I've done so already for a month". It's great that they do discover it eventually.

I don't really know the artists in OP, except for Cut Copy. Looking forward to the new Tool album though

Dunno what the new Radiohead album will be like, but it's released this weekend.

You recommended Kaputt. You recommended Tim Hecker. Lola Kite isn't even on Pitchfork. Tennis I never knew was on pf.

Yuck I got off a friend and Cut Copy I grabbed off Top 10 on a tracker.



I never said they were breakthrough artists? I said they were good releases. There's a massive difference.


Please stay out of threads that MIGHT have an album Pitchfork has reviewed, because you just lose it when that happens.

I mentioned artists I like, not new stuff. Jesus 'Zique, calm it.
