2012 Year End Best Of

Minion Name:
  Mr Pharmacist  

It's the end of the world and I feel fried. No real order here.

The Odds by The Evens
Side project from Fugazi front man and wife (or is partner/SO/Soul mate?). Sounds like Fugazi filtered through Ralph Stanley.

Strobosphere by Bailtor Space
Sounds like early nineties lo-fi space music to me. It should. They invented it.

Skakeoil by Tim Berne
Avant-garde chamber jazz. Who wouldn't love that?

The Lost Tapes by Can
You can smell the goat stink from these German hippies. The power of the motorik groove.......

L'Enfant Sauvage by Gojira
I like to picture Axel Rose going through an MFA program and then joining this band.

Allelujah! Don't Bend Ascend! By Godspeed You! Black Emperor
Epic post-rock sandwich with a couple of drones as the meat.

Centipede Hz by Animal Collective
Indie band that could do no wrong finally do and thousands of hipsters go "meh." Don't be fooled: this is subversive pop spiked with anxiety. It's the sound of Now.

Koloss by Meshuggah
If Nietzsche and Dave Brubeck joined Iron Maiden.......

Silver Age by Bob Mould
A bit inconsistent, but the high points provide a Sugar rush.

Unsound by Mission of Burma
Sigh. I love these guys.
