It's already on Spotify and I'm in the US. Says it was released in the UK on Monday. Pitchfork reviewed it last month....weird.

It just seems weird to call it "overlooked". I've heard a TON of hype for it. It just leaked last week as far as I know. Not positive about that, but I didn't download it since it was coming out so soon.

I want to add

3. Lovedrug - Wild Blood

4. Animal Kingdom - The Looking Away

It has been a very slow year to me compared to last year at least.

Forgot to add these to my list earlier:

Royal Headache
Saint Etienne - Words and Music By Saint Etienne

Also, really dig the latest Oren Ambarchi/Keiji Haino/Jim O'Rourke collaboration which is called Imikuzushi (and was recommended above by Pitchfork). Unlike typical noise rock offerings, this one has a propulsive back beat, phenomenal vocals and a lot more musicality behind it. Could even be a contender for my favorite album of the year, even.
