Does anyone know any good NEW albums??

I'm hosting a show on my school radio station in a week, and our playlist requires 40% of the songs have to be from albums released in the last six months. Since I think most new music today BLOWS, I need some suggestions. Keep in mind that this is a university station, and thus we tend not to play overly mainstream stuff.

Doves' "The Last Broadcast" was really good...not exactly sure what "mainstream" is considered in Canada, so that's probably the best I could give you right now.

I second Doves "The Last Broadcast"!! An excellent record.

South "From Here On In" (tracks 2 & 6)
Elbow "Asleep In The Back" (tracks 2 &7)
Neil Finn "One All" (anything off this album)
James "Getting Away With It (Live)
the forthcoming Coldplay record

man there is sooo little...

i heard bruce springsteens latest today and i am most impressed. that is a great song. maybe you could play that? i dont care if its mainstream or not its a good tune.

play some of the new radiohead mp3s

man other than that, there is NOTHING.

i mean sigur ros is coming out with something shortely, but i dont know when. boards of canada, i have no idea, aphex twin same, i have no idea.

well i also think the new filter song is good too. "where do we go from here"


slim pickens, but next year it should be a great great year with expected releases coming from u2, radiohead, pearl jam, and im sure many more, oh and yes! rem too!

2003 should be a very good year for music.

It was mentioned in another thread, but the new Trail of Dead CD is really good well as zooropamanda's choice of BRMC.

aside from those mentioned...

electric soft parade - holes in the wall (thom yorke recently praised them, quality guitar-driven rock, with good song structures and lyrics)

gomez - in our gun (based firmly in blues yet splashed with electronic beats and noize)

clinic - walking with thee (wired with nervous energy, sounds like it could be eerie backdrop for a clint eastwood or charles bronson film)

squarepusher - go plastic (for something really 'out there' and experimental, although this album is a year old now)l

but I among those previously mentioned, I highly recommend Elbow, Doves and BRMC
send lawyers, guns and money...

I second the Doves, Electric Soft Parade, and Beth Orton recommendations, and would also add:

South -- From Here On In
Mull Historical Society -- Loss
Ash -- Free All Angels
Kosheen -- Resist

Gemma Hayes: Night On My Side

Yeah Yeah Yeah's: Master

The Coral: The Coral (they're a bit tho)

I don't know if best of's count but Tricky's newest album (best of) is very cool.

and I know The Frames: For The Birds was out last year but it's a great album.

DJ Shadow is cool too.

good question

there isnt much new out worth picking up, hell, the last 20 out of 22 albums have been relesed form over 2 yrs ago..

i dont think hes droped a new one yet, but del the funky homosapian is good....

the flaming lips are always nice..

but if ur looking for albums in general try to pick up some soundtracks from the cowboy bebop anime, lott of good jazz style tracks, not to mention the remix album is nice...

the rhazel album, mtm2000, is hot...if u into hip hop and beat boxing...

David Bowie's new album HEATHEN has some really cool songs on it.
