Good GETS at the record store tonight. They didn’t have any vinyl copies of the new Liars left. Sorta butthurt I didn’t order the special fancy edition when they announced it.
Aww daaang Liars are doing a limited edition version of their next album on dual clear discs. Looks like the sleeve is vacuum packed color yarn. I wonder if I should get on this?
I made a playlist of all those tracks I mentioned because I’m a shit.
Actually, that Horseback track isn’t in there because Relapse is pretty good at keeping their stuff off the internets.
I made my mom a mix CD for her birthday. This has a lot of crossover with other recent mix CDs, but it’s also meant to present a lot of things I’ve been into lately in a more mom-friendly format? So what I’m saying is “this mix tape is more fit for human consumption than my normal mixtapes”…
Driven tunes for driving to. I don’t know! I don’t have a car! Based on a mix CD I made a friend who visited me last week. He got home safe, so I’m gonna assume the mix was a SUCCESS!
Part 1 of my two part Year End End of the World Best-of Mixtape. This is the pop half.
No particular order but the one I thought the tracks worked best in.
I guess I’m gonna go ahead and post my favorite albums of the year now, so you will all have plenty of time to get them in your head before the world ends Friday. When the skies burn and the Earth swallows you up at the end of the week, you can comfort yourself with the knowledge Inkmo on tumblr really dug Swans’ apocalyptic epic The Seer as the best album of 2012.
Swans - The Seer
Earth - Angels of Darkness, Demons of Light II
Bell Witch - Longing
Dreamend - And the Tears Washed Me, Wave After Cowardly Wave
Horseback - Arjuna
Dull Knife - Dull Knife
Liars - WIXIW
Xiu Xiu - Always
Deerhoof - Breakup Song
The Men - Open Your Heart
Some notable mentions: I only get ten images here. I would have put Army of 2600’s new album FORTIFICATION up there if I had more. It’s a good solid hour of chipnoise. He’s one of the guys really doing chiptune and the video game nostalgia thing right in my opinion. Also, I left out Locrian’s The Clearing, because the version this year is a re-issue.
There were some EPs, too. I decided to list them separately.
Horseback & Locrian - New Dominions
Black Hat - Spectral Disorder
Vatican Shadow - September Cell
Asobi Seksu & Boris - Asobi Seksu & Boris Split 7”
Contrepoison - I Keep On Searching
Welp, there are my big old dumb opinions.
Liars - Plaster Casts of Everything
Also, this. This song and video. Wow.
Liars - Scissor
This is the video and song that made me stand up and take notice w this band.
