    Mood Six - The Difference Is...
    Genre: Mod Revival/Pop-Rock
    Year: 1985


    Nothing groundbreaking or bizarre today. Just an album loaded full of catchy, tight songs that simply never got their due.

    Recommended If You Like: The Jam, Squeeze, The Lambrettas, REM, The Style Council, and Teenage Filmstars.

    Sample a few tracks on myspace (1st ten tracks are from this album).

    Exuma - Self Titled
    Genre: Caribbean Folk Fusion
    Year: 1970


    Imagine a spawn of Count Ossie and Comus if they were both a bit more wide-reaching in their palettes of sound, and then throw in a heaping of brutally passionate vocals, a few tribal and voodoo rituals, and a whole bunch of soul.
    Now enjoy Exuma!

    Recommended If You Like: Comus, Pearls Before Swine, Count Ossie, No-Neck Blues Band, Elizabeth Cotten, and Sun Ra.

    good (sometimes great) band, currently hyped super-hard...
    no ill will, just really just trying to convince people to dig into some lesser known artists that totally deserve it.

    What I've heard from them (Animal Collective) hasn't really gelled with me. But I will definitely check out Exuma.

    as you may know, i'm not much of a fan of blues-rock, but i'll think on it and see if i can think of something appropriate.

    i'm totally open to suggestions since i realize i'm currently not hitting the absolute widest range of genres.
    of course that's simply due to my own tastes combined with wanting to provide consistently high quality tunes.

    A lot of people liked the pop-punk record, also being on lastfm helped. :)

    Exuma, the Obeah man was classy as hell. Great listening.

    haha, the last time i attempted a variant on this thread i limited myself to full albums that are available on last.fm...

    i hate doing that, but i'll try to wedge more in if people are really having that much trouble finding listenable copies online.

    glad you dig it... it's a marvelous album. "dambala" is definitely my favorite...

    I don't think you should limit it to albums that are available on last.fm, but it's a help to a noob like me who's trying to find some of the stuff you mention here.

    Apostle Of Solitude - Sincerest Misery
    Genre: Traditional Doom Metal
    Year: 2008


    Straightforward traditional doom with melodic vocals and a generally clean sound. Quite possibly one of the most relaxing metal albums I can think of off the top of my head.

    Recommended If You Like: The Gates Of Slumber, Reverend Bizarre, Candlemass, Saint Vitus, Witchfinder General, and Cathedral.

    Sample a few tracks on myspace.

    The first track on their myspace page sounded pretty good, will probably check this one out.

    it has to be at least 1000 words and say absolutely nothing about the album itself.

    All Angels Gone - Quietly
    Genre: Post-Rock
    Year: 2005


    Some of the most accessible yet still highly enjoyable post-rock I've heard... A rare Radiohead imitation that doesn't make me groan.

    Recommended If You Like: Radiohead, Sigur Ros, Mono, The Evpatoria Report, Caspian, and The Ascent of Everest.

    Sample the album on last.fm.

    I'll definitely be trying this album out. Especially since it's a free download and all.

    Dias De Blues - Self Titled
    Genre: Blues Rock
    Year: 1972


    This is the only album released by these fellows from Uruguay, but it surpasses most other contenders in the genre by quite a stretch in my opinion.
    The slight psychedelic overtones keep things interesting, I suppose.

    Recommended If You Like: Cream, The Jimi Hendrix Experience, Cactus, Blue Cheer, Steamhammer, and Sir Lord Baltimore.

    Sample a few tracks on myspace.

    I need to check out Cactus and Steamhammer.

    The Mausoleums - Blackened Fawns Cleanse The Earth With Fire
    Genre: Noise-Pop/Black Noise
    Year: 2008


    Based on which track you hear from this album you could draw comparisons to anything from Abruptum to My Bloody Valentine to Yellow Swans. This was one of my favorite albums a few years ago and I'm still in love with this confusing mess of several of my favorite styles.

    Recommended If You Like: Menace Ruine, Have A Nice Life, Lifelover, Nadja, The Angelic Process, Njiqahdda, and Pyramids.

    Sample a few tracks on myspace.

    Bluetile Lounge - Half-Cut
    Genre: Slowcore/Dreampop
    Year: 1998


    Despite garnering praise from bands like Low, Idaho, and Sonic Youth (Steve Shelley released this album, in fact) this Australian group has never received even a fraction of the audience they deserve.
    Their previous album is equally great, but I think this one achieved a perfect balance of dreaminess and dissonance.

    Recommended If You Like: Codeine, Galaxie 500, Idaho, Bedhead, Damon & Naomi, and Rivulets.

    The Mausoleums' album was ****ing great. Will check out Bluetile Lounge later today. This thread is quite possibly one of the only worthwhile things happening on these forums.

    All Angels Gone was some beautiful stuff. the free downloads was icing on the cake.

    All Angels Gone is very cool so far, though I totally get what you mean about the Radiohead worship (is the singer Thom Yorke's brother?). I'll have to look up Bluetile Lounge next, I have a feeling I'll love it.

    After catching up a bit, I enjoyed the albums quite a bit. It may take a little while to get to your most recent albums, so it looks like I'll have to play catch-up once again since I'm running out of space on my computer, I'll probably buy an external HD within the next few days. I agree with Oscar that this thread is certainly one of the best and most interesting we have at the moment, it's awesome listening to the variety in the albums you post. I just wanted to say thanks for making this thread awesome and giving me an excellent way for to discover new music. :)

    glad to keep this thread going for those who continue to check it...

    i'll have to take a short break of an undetermined length starting in a little under 2 weeks while i'm on the road, but i guess that will be a good time for you guys to get caught up. :)
