I listened to so little new music. It's getting worse every year. I liked these:

Lucero - Among the Ghosts
High on Fire - Electric Messiah
Courtney Barnett - Tell Me How You Really Feel

The new ones from Voivod and Bloodbath struck me as average.
This is a snakeskin jacket. And for me it's a symbol of my individuality and my belief in personal freedom.

It seems like everyone is just releasing individual songs these days instead of full albums, so there aren't a ton of full albums to list.

Ice Cube - Everythang's Corrupt
VNV Nation - Noire
Venus In Furs - Green
Amorphis - Queen of Time
Edie Brickell & New Bohemians - Rocket

Usurpress - In Books Without Pages
Tribulation - The Lament
Rivers of Nihil - The Silent Life
Bloodbath - Wayward Samaritan
Moby - Like A Motherless Child
Ghost - Rats
Mantar - Age of the Absurd
High on Fire - Electric Messiah

Honorable mentions: VNV Nation - When Is the Future, A Perfect Circle - TalkTalk, Slegest - Undergangens tankesmed

Some real gems there for sure! Brother and Sister is, as you can see, my song of the year and it's a friggin' bonustrack on the album. That's how good Queen of Time is. And it was nice to hear VNV Nation getting back to form somewhat with Noire.

I definitely recommend checking out the new Witch Mountain album too. It was so great seeing them live at a small club here in Denver. Kayla is amazing.
