I need to give 2:54 another shot. The couple songs I've heard didn't strike me but the Warpaint LP rules.
Japandroids album smokes.
Also enjoying lately:
Animal Collective - Honeycomb b/w Gotham
Apart - Gray Light
(RIYL Xerxes, Caravels, current screamo revival)
Coasta - Coasta EP
(RIYL Robbers, earlier Radiohead, Wilco)
R.E.M. - Reckoning
Ride - Going Blank Again
Jawbox - For Your Own Special Sweetheart
I do not recommend leaving the CD case out in your car in direct sunlight, though.
