New Band of Horse sucked. New Avett Bros. didn't do much for me. Thank god I'm enjoying the new Mumford and Sons. Jason Molina is also back from the farm (literally) with a new release that I dig. Yay! Hopefully his demons have been conquered. The new Grizzly Bear is good as well.
In other genres:
Frank Ocean (duh)
Twin Shadow (just check it out... bizarro R&B pop)
In this world of sin and sorrow there is always something to be thankful for; as for me, I rejoice that I am not a Republican.
