The newest Coffins album, released this year, "Buried Death".

So heavy. The tracks Under The Stench and Altars In Gore are pretty much


Cheap Girls - "Find Me A Drink Home" - 2008

Alt rock that is comparable to the Lemonheads, I guess, and pretty much college radio from the early 90s.


Espers - "ii" - 2006

Psych-folk. You need this album.


Thou - "Peasants"

Crucial doom from NOLA. If not more members, I know the singer was in Dear Diary I Seem To Be Dead (McCarthyism) and Eat A Bag of Dicks. The main riff in the song Burning Black Coals... is one of the coolest I've heard in a long time.


Crowsdell - "Dreamette" - 1995

An early band from Shannon Wright, whom I worship. Sort of Pavement-ish and was produced by Stephen Malkmus, so there ya go. Solid album all the way through but Down and Waltz are my favorite tracks.


The Dickies - "Dawn of The Dickies" - 1979

One of my favorite punk albums of all time that features one of my favorite songs of all time, Infidel Zombie.


Max Richter - "The Blue Notebooks" - 2004

His best release, in my opinion. Neo-classical, self described "post-classical". He was classically trained on violin and piano, both of which play large roles in his music. He often times blends those instruments with minimalist electronic.


Slowdive - "Slowdive" EP - 1990

Doesn't really need a description. Shoegaze. Pretty sure this was their debut.


Yaphet Kotto - "Syncopated Synthetic Laments For Love" - 2001

One of my favorite emo releases from the early '00s / late '90s era.


Much more additions tomorrow when I've actually got a bit of free time.
