Even at a distance, after my obsession with them is over, this is still a good album. I cherish the vinyl of it.

These all seem like classic DDG to me. I saw them perform the whole album from start to finish back in October, it was one of the best shows I've seen this year and my favorite DDG show out of the four times I've seen them now.

Coming Down is still their best song yet though.

>>
>>52241592
Not true. The bassist split to focus on being an author and the other guitarist split to work on his own music. Mike's album is coming out in March.

Wes Marskell and Jason Couse are still making music. It actually went better than expected because they only wanted to make three albums and then stop completely.

There are some good songs on it but I felt like it was generally just a lot weaker, especially when it came to the instrumentals, than Only in Dreams.

Coming Down is a killer for sure, but He Gets Me High is a classic for me.

Another hidden gem from 2011. Elder's Dead Roots Stirring. One of my favorite stoner rock albums of all time.

>>52243266
Battles, Radiohead, Fleet Foxes, Timber Timbre, Colin Stetson.

>>52243249
Nearly everything I have heard from 2013 was mediocre (Like Clockwork, Reflektor, RAM, midcity). Government Plates was the standout for me, but even then that was just an 8/10.

I didn't realize how good 2011 was until I went back through my music library and sorted by 2011.

Fleet Foxes, Radiohead, and Battles haven't done anything since then.

Timber Timbre released the best album of their career in April this year.

Colin released an album at the same caliber as Judges last year.

>>52243322
Listen to I See Seaweed if you haven't. It's by far my favorite from 2013

I do need to listen to Hot Dreams again. I misread that post as having said they dropped nothing in 2013.
Vol. 2 just stuck with me more than Vol. 3. Haven't listened to either in a while.

>>52243382
You might be thinking of RYM, last.fm isn't a good platform for music criticism at all.

>>52243351
Will do, but only if >>52243420 does the same for 2014 charts.

or this one


two of my favorite albums ever. I had the chance to see them in a warehouse (in Dwyer's hometown, no less) right after Carrion Crawler dropped but I was too wee to go to DIY shows alone and neither parent would take me. All those spaces are in a really "rough" part of town that isn't actually very rough.

But it's okay, I saw them at 285 Kent last year.
