I'll be honest, I glanced at this list initally and just thought it was another standard indie list that seems to get a lot of love around here. Now I'm kinda ashamed to admit after seeing it quoted I now see quite a few bands I like.

I'm so out of the loop, I see you have Glassjaw listed, so i went searching and found they put out two EPs since their last album and now they might have another full length in the pipeline? LOL, I had no idea they've done anything since 2004.

Also, good to see Funeral for a Friend are still making music, I always thought they put out solid albums.

Is Empire! Empire! putting out a full length or is it another EP?

Buying vs downloading debate, I'm much more likely to buy a bands album if they stream the entire album on their sites or something. If they don't, the only other avenue I have to listen to it is either finding it on some other streaming site, youtube, or downloading it(and if I end up doing this, I have no need to buy it after). I enjoy supporting bands I like, especially if they're independent.

I can't remember for sure, really hoping for a full length.

And if you haven't already, I would check out letlive. if you're a fan of Glassjaw. They almost sound like a Glassjaw cover band.

I'm only about halfway through my first listen, and I think I like it even more than TBR so far.

It's about some stupid new band that members of the band formed. Black and White or something. Yuck.

I'm assuming you've heard this then, but just in case...
like it but it's more of the same.

Most of their money comes from the grind of touring nowadays.
The thing that's particularly annoying is that CDs are the cheapest and most worthwhile purchase out there-- I doubt the medium will ever become obsolete (heck, Vinyls are still around, and sound quality has not improved much since-- on the other hand I'm much more careful and hesitant to buy films)-- The amount it costs to buy a CD is roughly the same as having lunch for crying out loud-- and that's a one time thing whereas you'll get a ton of lasting mileage out of a great CD.

Downloading without buying is a sign that you just don't care, IMO.

On the other hand, I love downloading, don't believe that it's stealing or feel that there's anything wrong with it. I download everything that interests me, let it sink in enough to gauge how much I like it and buy everything from the top of my favorites downwards.

I've bought a ton of albums directly as a result of downloading-- Without it, I would have zero, and probably wouldn't even have interest in music.

Please rename this thread "Second Best Album of 2013".

Quote:
My Bloody Valentine's new album could be released in two or three days, according to the band's frontman Kevin Shields.

Speaking on stage during the band's show at Brixton's Electric, Shields said the long-awaited follow-up to 1991's 'Loveless' "might be out in two or three days".

They've never claimed to be this close. It is apparently done mixing. I'd be shocked if it doesn't come out in 2013.

She & Him are in on releasing an album this year. May 7 is the date. This year is going to kick so much ass, I better get a new computer so I can handle it all.

Who's better, Frightened Rabbit or Twilight Sad?

I've been meaning to get into a new band for a while but time issues, deciding between Frightened Rabbit, Twilight Sad, and Foals.

It's awesome.
Listened about a dozen times now and I'm just not blown away. I mean it's very nice and all, just kind of boring.

I enjoy all three bands, but Frightened Rabbit by a good margin. Start by listening to The Midnight Organ Fight. One of my favorite albums of the new millennium.

Yeah, I felt that was about the first album, too. They are a talented band, easy to listen to, but nothing really wows me about them. I've only listened to the new one about 3 times, though.

The more I listen to the new Local Natives album, Hummingbird, the less I enjoy it. It's still a fine album with a few really great standout tracks - Breakers, Heavy Feet, Columbia, etc. But yeah, it pretty much ends there.

I'm really digging the new album from "Indians" titled "Somewhere else". It's pretty great.

You can listen to a song here.

Depeche Mode are releasing a new album?

I'd listen to them if they weren't such a cheesy sounding band.

Dinosaur Bones is asking fans for suggestions on what they should name their new album, I had no idea they were releasing one this year, excellent.
