the top 44 albums of 2 thousand 7 (16-13)

Yeah yeah yeah, I’m basically trying to rapid fire this isht so you guys can have a pleasent day tomorrow (for those who actually frequent this blog, you may be like Hey! Wow! two top 44 posts! after he did nothing for a week! It’s what I’m hoping happens). But for cereal, we’re getting down to the core greats here, and to tell the truth, I’m getting kinda sad. At the end of 2007 I was okay, because I knew I still had a lot of posts to go before I gave my final farewell to the great muzak that went down that year, but now as the finish line is approaching, it makes me a little sad that I have to say goodbye to all these great discs. But I gotta keep my head up. I gotta hope for 2008 to be just as unbelievable. So enjoy these posts of these next four albums… It was a good one….

16. matthew dear: asa breed

This album contains one of my favorite songs of the year. Matthew Dear produces miraculous sounds that work together to create something amazing in the studio. He is one of the best electronic preformers of this year and this should be recognized beyond the text. If anyone tells you to check this out, they probably know what they are talking about, because his record label, and his experience meld together to make a pretty sustainable force. So please believe the person whos talking. *SONG OF THE ALBUM*: “Deserter”.

MATTHEW DEAR- DESERTER [MP3]
MATTHEW DEAR- FLEECE ON BRAIN [MP3]

15. battles : mirrored

Battles created one of the greatest instrumental albums of the past ten years through their dynamic guitar recking and relentless drum beats. I can’t even try to stop listening to the absolutely wonderful sounds that rage from the speakers and spread BATTLES sound. It’s basically that unbelieveable… If it’s not from me, then you will here it else where. *SONG OF THE ALBUM*: “Race : Out”.

M P 3s
BATTLES- RACE : OUT [MP3]
BATTLES- DDIAMONDD [MP3]

14. the shaky hands : s / t

The Shaky Hands were a band I heard only in this past year, and they were spectacular.Their rustic and calm acoustic sound drew endless amounts of attention from me, while they’re seemingly sloppy lyrics evoked a certain “cool” quality. This band is a very different style then any I’ve ever heard, but in a very very good way.*SONG OF THE ALBUM*: “The Sleepless”.

M P 3s
THE SHAKY HANDS- THE SLEEPLESS [MP3]
THE SHAKY HANDS- SUMMER’S LIFE [MP3]
THE SHAKY HANDS- WHY AND HOW COME [MP3]

13. say hi : the wishes and the glitch

Say Hi was a group that really actually snuck up on me. I, yes, used to know them as Say Hi To Your Mom, which was an awesome name, but nothing from that or from the variation really stuck out to me to make me see change throughout their previous works. But when I heard The Wishes and the Glitch, something was different. The group began avoiding obvious areas that usual tactics would have succumbed to, and began making their own territory, their own boundries. Everything was adjusted, and working. And yeah, I loves it. *SONG OF THE ALBUM*: “Oboes Bleat and Triangles Tink”.

M P 3s
SAY HI- OBOES BLEAT AND TRIANGLES TINK [MP3]
SAY HI- MAGIC BEANS AND THE TRUTH MACHINES [MP3]
SAY HI- BLUETIME [MP3]

The 25 Days of Christmas: Part 22

Wow, the days been hectic as 28 of my old high school friends will shuffle down my basement stairs in a few hours and cram into a roygbiv glowing room while showering in cheap light beer and sip sliding shots from an ice luge. Oh and everyone is required to be wearing a very cheerful Christmas sweater. It should be some fun. But here’s yr mp3.

It’s a grim day in December as warmer weather and higher precipitation attempts to rain on my Christmas spirit. Fuck you rain.
