Best *new artists* of 2011; also- albums by old artists that own 2011
 
I haven't heard any truly great 2011 albums by new artists yet.

Remember, like, 2002...? we were sprawling with new music popping up out of nowhere. Scenester's paradise.

But so far, the only artists that have caught my attention in 2001 are artists I already love.

Mogwai- Hardcore will never die but you will
Tom Waits- Bad as Me
Jackie-O Motherfucker- earth sound system

... what else is going on? I really want to know. I haven't been paying any attention to new releases or artists this year, and it's something I usually keep track of.

This has happened to me like three times. I must have add.

2011 albums I have bought:
Syr9
P.J. Harvey: Let England Shake
Thurston: Demolished and Solo Acoustic
Kate Bush: Director´s Cut
22 Pistepirkko: Lime Green Delorean
Regina: Soita Mulle
Tom Waits: Bad as Me

All those have been great. None of them is a new artist.

E. Noisefield 10.30.2011 01:25 PM

Oh yeah, I totally forgot about PJ Harvey!!!

And of course Demolished Thoughts is great. I don't like it as much as his others, but it's a top 5'er, definitely.

These guys weren't born this year, but they're pretty new, and I like them a lot. Awesome live and on tape. Allegedly just released a new tape but I havn't seen one yet. Definitely west coastal psych, but deeply into the free-est "spiritual" deepest jazz. Fun to hang out with too. Wish I still lived in the same county as these guys.

lots of incestual band member overlap at their tape label:

I guess WU LYF is pretty good, and their album is from '11.

Dude, stop making all these pointless threads. It's starting to become a bit annoying.

Sorry. I'm bored and have had some seriously lazy work days lately.

I don't want to be "that guy".

Is this forum dead? I think you're wrong on both points you make.

kinda, there are only a few new posts here everyday.
and yeah, that post seemed kinda assholish & bitchmade to me, but perhaps Slavo just had a bad day.

either way, Noisefield can step up but his threads are surely not that bad.

Well maybe I'm taking this too seriously but I just counted all the new posts for today so far and it was over 100! not bad for a dead forum :D. I know plenty of other forums with much less.

I just listened to Wu LYF for the first time thanks to or rather because of this thread. Jesus, they suck. Terribly over emphatic vox creeps the hell out of me. And also "KTHX reverb". Very annoying to listen to!

If you do like yr reverb, go listen to Beach House's last LP. Way less pretentious and infinitely better compositions all round.

Actually, they've been around since late 2007 but they released their first full length album this September

Yeah, I forgot Iceage. Their album is really good. It's really energetic post-punk. Flesh those ideas out a little, and those guys are gonna have one hell of a sound.

Actually, I was listening to it on my way to work this morning, remembering that I'd recommended it here, and I was like "Meh.... I'm putting on something less 'wah'" I still do like it, but it grates on you.

Beach House is not less pretentious, though. Just pretentious in a different way.

pad_023 11.02.2011 11:53 AM

The Men
The People's Temple
Pure X
Psychic Paramount
Echo Lake
Bill Callahan
Tim Hecker
Braids
Wooden Shjips
Ice Age
Human Eye
Faust

Those artists releases have all been excellent

I'm pretty sure Steve Hauschildt from Emeralds album is also going to be great going on the first track he put out
