"And since this new generation was born into post-modern anything, they are wilder and more fearless than anything you’ve ever dealt with. But remind yourselves: Youth isn’t king. Content is king...Age doesn’t matter anymore. It’s all about what you have to say and what you’re going to say..." - Patton Oswalt
Baroness - Yellow & Green
Double album with no filler. This album kills.
The Gaslight Anthem - Handwritten
I'm from New Jersey, so there's my excuse.
The Antlers - Undersea (& Hospice)
Undersea is an incredible "mini-LP" and Hospice still hits me as hard as it did when I first heard it.
Family Band - Grace & Lies
Very dark but very relaxing ambient folk.
The Mary Onettes - Islands
Just got into this band recently and I love them. Epic Swedish pop songs.
The Books - Thought For Food / The Lemon of Pink
I downloaded their boxset but I've only listened to these two albums so far, but I really enjoy both.
Heavenly Beat - Talent
I was expecting this to suck but I really enjoy it. RIYL The Tough Alliance or Beach Fossils
I'm still working through their discography because I've only gotten into them recently but I really love Pretty in Black and Lust Lust Lust. The two new songs from Observator sound great too
