Flying Lotus: Los Angeles
Metallica: Death Magnetic – Maybe it was the raw power, emotion…and production of the early albums.  This Rick Rubin produced piece is heavy and clean.   More listens necessary to catch the drift.
Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds: Dig Lazarus Dig!!!
Ponytail: Ice Cream Spiritual
Explosions in the Sky:  The Earth Is Not a Cold Death Place – Fantastic.  Caught a performance on Austin City Limits and have been in love ever since. 
Jaguar Love: Take Me To The Sea
Leila: Blood, Looms and Blooms
Air France: No Way Down
Lindstrolm: Where You Go I Go Too – what a gem, can’t remember where I first read about these guys but this is like future booty-bedroom music.
