The ones I can think of, off the top of my head:

Cloud Nothings- Attack On Memory
Zammuto
Django Django
Gravenhurst- Ghost in the Daylight
Mountain Goats- Transcendental Youth
Menomena- Moms
Jessie Ware- Devotion
Jesca Hoop- The House That Jack Built
Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs- Trouble (pain in the arse to type that name out)
Mount Eerie- Clear Moon
Laurel Halo- Quarantine

Tennis' (which really grew on me after a month or two, plus I got quite drunk at their show and bought probably the ugliest band sweater ever), Killer Mike, Open Mike Eagle, Daphni, Dog is Dead (tied with my other favourite canine based band name, Dogs Die in Hot Cars).

Also most of popmofo's list, and there remains plenty I need to check up on.

Oh yeah Polica's album too.

Really good album, Mines I enjoyed to a certain extent but I don't often revisit it compared to Friend and Foe which Moms seems much more in tune with, but with I think better songs throughout, high points may not be quite as high though, will take a while to decide on that.

I feel the same as you in regards to their albums. Dirty Cartoons is probably the only song from Mines I go back to, despite liking the album quite a bit when it came out. Moms is extremely solid from start to finish.

I really need to buy Django Django. Maybe I'll put it on my Christmas list.

Juila Holter and Liars John Talabot's Fin also came out this year didn't it? Another good record.

The album sounded excellent live too.

I like those two Mount Eerie albums from this year, but I haven't spent enough time with either. Also, Julia Holter's album rules. It will be somewhere on my list.

I haven't listened to it in a long time but I know I really liked it. Will probably listen to it again sometime this week.

It's going to interesting to see which album gets the most points this year. There weren't a lot of really talked about albums around these parts like Kaputt or My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy were. I hope Lonerism wins.

The existence of this thread reminds me how much listening I have to do over the next six weeks. I have heard something like seventy albums released this year, but I have spent significant time with only a few of them.

My list of albums left to hear:

Aimee Mann – Charmer
Amanda Palmer & The Grand Theft Orchestra – Theatre Is Evil
Ben Folds Five – The Sound of the Life of the Mind Out
Big Boi – Viscous Lies and Dangerous Rumors
Brian Eno – LUX
Caspian – Waking Season
Dave Matthews Band – Away from the World
Dinosaur Jr. – I Bet on Sky
Goat – World Music
Here We Go Magic – A Different Ship
Holy Other – Held
Jens Lekman – I Know What Love Isn’t
Lawrence Arabia – Sparrow
mewithoutYou – Ten Stories
Mirroring – Foreign Body
M. Ward – A Wasteland Companion
Neneh Cherry & The Thing – The Cherry Thing
No Doubt – Push and Shove

In all likelihood, I'll just narrow it down to a dozen or so and focus on familiarizing myself with albums I already know I like, but it's good to have suggestions if I don't know what to listen to at a given moment.

Vicious*

On the Aussie front you are doing yourself a disservice if you don't at least listen to Alpine's A is For Alpine. A pretty great little indie album with female vocals.

If there is any cultural refinement left in the world, surely the Rush album will immediately catapult into your top spot, LM.
