Let's start it off with something music related. What music are you listening to that has been released this year?

Had to have a look through my library as I really couldn't think of anything off hand. Turns out I've got two albums from this year:

Amok by Atoms for Peace which I've only listened to once. Can't say it really inspired me, but as a friend gave it to me, that's not a problem,
The World is Yours by The Union which is a much better album in every way. Been one of my favourite bands for the last few years and so I'm very pleased that this album holds its own. Not even bothered by the £25 cost of the Deluxe Edition.
Bold words in my posts are links unless expressly stated otherwise. Have fun with them!

Yay! New Forum!

This year has been weird so far, the only albums I've listened to have been old bands/singers coming back and disappointing me mostly.

Bowie - The Next Day
Suede - Bloodsports
My Bloody Valentine - M B V

None of them are actually bad albums, but they all just sound a bit weak and tired I think.

Edit: Actually I love the Bowie album, it's got so many tracks on it though it's a long listen.

A short list of albums that have piqued my interest:

Justin Timberlake - The 20/20 Experience
Bilai - A Love Surreal
My Bloody Valentine - mbv
Rhye - Woman
Soilwork - The Living Infinite
Infinite H - FLY HIGH [EP]
A$AP Rocky - LONG.LIVE.A$AP
Mazes - Ores and Minerals
Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds - Push the Sky Away
eels - Wonderful, Glorious

I have plenty more than that from this year, but those are albums I have tended to return to more than other albums this year.

Never heard of The Union, it sounds like a good album.

I haven't seen a great deal so far this year that has grabbed my attention. So far I've liked:

Benoit Delbecq & Fred Hersch Double Trio - Fun House

Biome - Spawned EP

Kryptic Minds - Namaste EP

Céline Bonacina Trio - Open Heart

How To Destroy Angels - Welcome Oblivion

Objekt and Cosmin TRG - BLPGRN 002

Also listened to the Atoms For Peace album but it didn't excite me particularly, need to listen to it a few more times though.

Just 2 albums for now but both exceptional pieces:

* Steven Wilson's "The Raven that Refused to Sing" (for anyone who doesn't know Steven Wilson he's basicly God in the modern progressive rock scene)
* Arco's Angel's "Life's Love Loss". Bought a few minutes after release just yesterday. It's a side project of 2 of the members of Hurt (J Loren is on vocals). Everyone who's into rock should DEFINITELY check out Hurt especially their older albums Vol. I & Vol. II but their newer material is extremely good as well. Easily my favourite rock band ever  :)

I'm thinking just Armin van Buuren's ASOT 2013. Pretty good too.
Definitely checking out some of the other albums mentioned in here though.

I'm saddened to say that I'm yet to find a 2013 release that's epic. My most recent purchase was Two Gallants - The Bloom and the Blight but that's a 2012 release.
RIP OiNK

I've heard loads of talk about this.  It led me to download Fever Ray's album which I didn't like all too much. I'll try the the new Knife Release sometime

If her voice wasn't so unusual you would probably never notice that it's the same person and the music sounds nothing like that.

I just heard this, I was genuinely surprised. Pretty great. Hopefully it holds up over time.
