Albums That You (May Not) Have Heard

Well in this post I will attempt to show you music not all of you have heard from different genres, I'm not saying you will love it, just telling you it may be different than what you are used to. Music and gaming are not only my two favorite things but a better pairing than bacon and eggs (or mac and cheese or pb&j). But sometimes I like to shut the console off close my computer screen and sit outside enjoying the weather around me while taking in the music. Lately I've been trying genres I haven't dug too deeply into. I'll show the three most listened to albums of the past few weeks. One again, remember music like all of life's great treasures is subjective so feel free to tell me what you enjoy too.

TV On The Radio - Nine Types of Light
 TV on the Radio released Nine Types of Light about a month ago and just weeks after the release their bass player died from Lung Cancer. This band is very hit and miss for people so I'll let you preview this one. I have seen them live three times now and they are just an amazing group of musicians. I know this type of music probably isn't for everyone but I love all of their music and hope you guys do too.


MF Doom - MM Food
MF Doom will forever be the rapper that opened my eyes to how talented and amazing hip hop was. I can single handily attribute him to the taste of music I hold today. This is probably my favorite album by him but really all of them are perfect. He goes by several other names (Madvillain, King Geedorah, DOOM, Viktor Vaughn, Metal Face) and really epitomizes rap.


LCD Soundsystem - This Is Happening
LCD Soundsystem recently did their final show and it was one of the most amazing things I had the pleasure of witnessing. If you have not listened to them before this album is a good jumping off point. James Murphy is extremely talented and I would probably name this as the best or one of the best albums to be released in 2010.


Honorable mention: Tyler the Creator - Goblin, I love rap and this guy has got a very unique style and I love his music. But part of me keeps myself from loving him entirely.

  31. I don't understand the appeal of LCD SS. Sure, they have some nice songs, but the dumbasses at Pitchfork gave them the second best song of the decade. Get real.

  38. MF Doom is amazing. Tyler's stuff on goblin actually covers a pretty wide range, some of it took some time to grow on me. The other stuff put out by OF members is also really good.
