The Weeknd

I can't imagine someone not bitching about me putting this on this particular blog, but this is me giving a fuck.  The Weeknd is probably one of the best new acts of 2011 with his electronic/rhythm and blues sex songs he's had to offer with his two free mixtapes thus far in 2011.  Listen to them, enjoy them and don't be a genre snob.

Bjork - Biophilia

You'd have to be insane to not put Bjork's new album, "Biophilia", on your blog or your playlist. It's a strong contender for album of the year. Yes, it's monstrously amazing.

CygnosiC - A Deity In Pain

From the cover art to the beginning Silent Hill like drone of "To Spread the Chaos" CygnosiC really know how to grab my attention. Vocals distorted just enough to make the audience tilt their heads, beats that are danceable yet dark, CygnosiC's debut album is worth checking out.

M83 - Hurry Up, We're Dreaming [2011]

I'll be quick. M83 is fun, sexy and exciting.  But you already know that since you're reading this don't you? In any case their new album for 2011, a double album, is out and its top 10 material for sure.  Spanning 22 tracks it's a bit long but it flows well enough where the time passes in mere seconds. Order the vinyl at the link below.

xXRx - 333 Ch1

Crazy things happen late at night, some good and some bad. If for some reason you searched for me last Tuesday you would have found me in luc1d's living room, listening to the dark ambient and industrial tones of the his latest project, xXRx. The latest album is meant to be the beginning of a trilogy, and while it's always great to know that there's more to come from an album that is fast becoming a favorite that's not the best part of 333 Ch1. The ambiance found throughout the album is reminiscent of a tastefully done horror score, often I get the urge to watch Silent Hill while this is playing; though I feel that describing this album such is almost doing it a disservice it's one of the only ways I can describe it to potential listeners. One of the standout tracks is "Ma Mere," whose beginning synths conjure memories of numerous Birthday Massacre songs though it is far creepier than anything Chibi and Co. have done. While I should have been sleeping and getting prepared for college the next morning I most definitely don't consider my time wasted this is one album that shouldn't be missed, go check it out!

M83 - Saturdays = Youth (2008)

Release Date: April 14, 2008

In anticipation of M83's new album, I thought about posting my favourite album from the one man dream pop act. It's only been recently that I've looked into this man's work but it has definitely proved to be fruitful. There really isn't a bad album M83 has ever made so if you like the following track be sure to not only check out Saturdays = Youth but also the rest of M83's discography, which I plan to be posting after this. Enjoy

Evol Intent - Era of Diversion (2008)

While it might be a bit old Era of Diversion still has plenty of merit left to offer. With a whopping 19 tracks the album is littered with different directions, sounds, and samples; if you haven't already go give it a try!

Feindflug - Vulk Und Armee

If you're in the mind for some purely instrumental Industrial I cannot recommend Feindflug enough. While the German group has quite a bit of controversy surrounding them I couldn't care less when masterful tracks like "AK-47" and "Feindbild" are blaring out my headphones.

*If you are one who dislikes images from WWII or war in general I'd stay clear*
