    One of my most anticipated releases this year, Knife Party's Haunted House EP.

    [​IMG]

    ''Power Glove''

    Amazing, dark, sounds very Knife Party-ish. Great drop and ending.

    ''LRAD''

    Perfect intro, perfect first drop, perfect intro to second drop, but the second drop is meh. Was my favorite when they played it live, now not so much.

    ''Internet Friends (VIP mix)''

    A year old VIP of a two year old track. They replaced Baghdad, which sounded amazing live with this. Great, but Baghdad would've been even better.

    ''EDM Death Machine''

    Wow. Freaking awesome. Loved the lyrics. Fast and dark. Love it.
    ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
    Whole EP:

    4/5 - Make us wait a year for 3 new tracks is not what they should do. All in all, great. Kinda disappointed that my favorite live track turned out kinda meh.

    :lol:

    Of course. I'm guessing you've heard it... towards the time just before the stream I was getting worried and one leaked song which turned out to be fake actually made me think... 'is this album going to be worth all the hype i've been giving it?'

    Needless to say, it was nothing like I thought it would be, but I didn't know what to expect... all I know is it blew me away, i've currently got this on repeat... this will be one of my favourite albums. Ever. It's defo my favourite Daft Punk album.


    Rudimental - Home i've been listening to lately.. it's actually a really great record.

    About halfway through the year, I've started to process enough music to decide which I enjoy the most.

    My favorite album thus far would have to be Modern Vampires of the City.

    220px-Vampire_Weekend_-_Modern_Vampires_of_the_City.png

    I've never been a fan of Vampire Weekend. In fact, with the exception of a few songs, they mostly just annoyed me. But this new album is great. It's ethereal, strange, but still catchy and fun.

    The album Open Season by High Highs would have to be a close second.

    I really want to say Boards of Canada's "Tomorrow's Harvest" but I'm not so sure. There are only two tracks which I'd hit up more than once, otherwise the album looks like it might be collecting a little bit of dust. I'll have to go through it again.

    So far, my favorite album of the year is Justin Timberlake's The 20/20 Experience. Paramore's self-titled album comes in second.

    Empire (Let Them Sing)
    Sleepwalking
    Go To Hell, For Heavens Sake

    9/10
