Nine Types of Light - TV on the Radio
From release day until October 3rd, this was in my car's CD player. Actually, I think it's still in there.
Recommended track: "Second Song"
No Color - The Dodos
I smile from ear to ear every single time I listen to this. Every time.
Recommended tracks: "Black Night" and "Don't Stop"
The Rip Tide - Beirut
Unique without being different for different's sake. A better use of accordion I have not heard.
Recommended track: "Vagabond"
Circuital - My Morning Jacket
Got back to what made me fall in love with them in the first place.

Helplessness Blues - Fleet Foxes
For the smelly, hacky-sack playing hippy in all of us.

Bon Iver - Bon Iver
They're just great, aren't they?

The Year of Hibernation - Youth Lagoon
Far away, earnest and melancholy, reaching out to you from inside a winter dream.

Dreamy floating tune after dreamy floaty tune.

Kaput - Destroyer
Some people may not enjoy Daniel Bejar outside of New Pornographers but I've became an even bigger fan when I heard the album Destroyer's Rubies for the first time.
Recommended track: "Chinatown"
Tomboy - Panda Bear
Loops and reverb and happiness and sadness and echo and loops and it just puts me in the zone.

It's not perfect but I have a lot of fun with it when I'm in the right mood.
Recommended track: "Houdini"
Collapse Into Now - R.E.M.
I'll miss you Michael, Mike, Bill, and Peter.
