One other album from this year that I should mention is Badlands from Dirty Beaches. It is definitely the most unique thing that I have heard this year.

High Violet is definitely my favourite National album. So glad I came around.

Just looked this up on YouTube and it already sounds awesome. Thanks for the tip!

Helplessness Blues, Suck It And See, Belong, and Circuital are all just wonderful albums.

^ Hell yeah, tourist, thanks for the reminder. When I wrote out my list, I knew I was forgetting something and now I remember what it was: Belong by The Pains of Being Pure at Heart. Love that shit. I really liked their debut, but I think this is even a step up.

"Heart In Your Heartbreak," although it technically came out in 2010, is probably one of my favorite songs of the year.

I've been a shitty contributor to this because I was trying to come up with a solid list. That's been derailed. But here's some of what I'm pretty sure I liked, in no particular order:

Destroyer - Kaputt
Tennis - Cape Dory
The Go! Team - Rolling Blackouts
Cut Copy - Zonoscope
Mogwai - Hardcore Will Never Die, But You Will
PJ Harvey - Let England Shake
Radiohead - The King of Limbs
Lykke Li - Wounded Rhymes
TV on the Radio - Nine Types of Light
Okkervil River - I Am Very Far
Cults - Cults

And my favorite song so far this year is "Abducted" by Cults.

I have forgotten to make a list as well, so I'm glad you added one, Peefer.

well, i have really been digging the new hudson falcons tracks. not that anyone actually cares about that here, though. but aside from that, the REM and social D albums, i can't remember what other new things i've even heard this year so far. i have the tv on the radio and decembrists albums, as well as the new steve earle, sitting on my tv. haven't gotten around to them yet. and there was something of a new glasvegas album, correct?
