Let's listen to some new music. And fight...sexily.


I've been putting off doing these year end wrap-ups simply because I knew it was going to be tough. I've probably listened to more new artists this year than any other year in my life. In hopes of keeping the lists concise, I've opted to shorten the length as to just reflect the best of each category. Unfortunately, with such short lists, there will be debate as to why things didn't make certain lists...but that's what discussion is for! I'll roll out a new list each day this week with applicable mp3s, so check back often!

Top 5 EPs:

05. Cold War Kids - Up In Rags EP
Jangly guitars and dissonant piano paired with Nathan Willett's expressive voice make for a great breakthough EP.
Cold War Kids - Hospital Beds
Cold War Kids - Hang Me Up To Dry

04. Professor Murder - Professor Murder Rides The Subway
Thank you, Professor Murder, for bringing the fun back to indie rock. More cowbell!
Professor Murder - Free Stress Test
Professor Murder - Champion

03. Colour Revolt - Colour Revolt EP
Smart, tortured songwriting and lush instrumentation make this one of the year's best! Trail of Dead, this could be you.
Colour Revolt - Our Homes And Graves
Colour Revolt - A New Family

02. Tokyo Police Club - A Lesson In Crime
These short 2 minute songs kick the crap out of any other high energy songs out there. I'm excited for the full length!
Tokyo Police Club - Nature Of The Experiment
Tokyo Police Club - If It Works

01. Klaxons - Xan Valleys EP
Klaxons win #1 cause it's fresh and it rocks. Bring on more of the indie rock/electro/rave!
Klaxons - Gravity's Rainbow
Klaxons - Atlantis To Interzone

The Twilight Sad - EP
The Twilight Sad - And She Would Darken The Memory
