Zs - Arms

If for nothing else, then this album is worth hearing just for the sheer uniqueness. It goes from spartan minimalism to astoundingly intricate writing that would make any New Complexity composer proud. This is technically closest to math rock, but that's like saying Justin Bieber is a male; the comparison is worthless. From the first measures of B is for Burning, you'll hear these guys are on a different level. It's composed music, so treat it as such. Except when singing along to Nobody Wants to Be Had.

Wolf Parade - Apologies to the Queen Victoria

Uploaded by request, although I still have a guilty pleasure stance towards this album. Modern World, I'll Believe in Anything, It's a Curse, etc. It's too good pop to ignore.

Moth in Flames - Ocean EP

Drone from some kid in Poughkeepsie who lives in my room, I'm told. Pretty secretive guy.
