Valet - Naked Acid (2008)



This is one woman named Honey Owens. She used to play in Jackie-O Motherfucker and now she plays bass on tour with Atlas Sound. This album is Naked Acid and sounds very similar to what that phrase may connote.

Rings - Black Habit (2008)



Friends of Animal Collective; includes Avey's sister doing some vocals and keys; Kria Brekkan recorded it. Little children playing in a dark forest with mythical creatures that may not hold themselves to the utmost moral standard. I secretly hope this metaphor has not been used several hundred times before.

Madvillain - Madvillainy (2004)



The debut album of hip-hop duo Madvillain, consisting of MF Doom and DJ Madlib. It's fun, weird, and not typical of hip-hop. It's short and generally hook-free cuts made it unfriendly to radio play, and MF Doom's eccentric lyrics made it that much more interesting.

Holy Fuck

Holy Fuck's name describes the reaction I have whenever I hear their music. They are from Canada and they have a very unique spin on their genre. In their Wikipedia page's words;

"The band uses live instrumentation and miscellaneous instruments and non-instruments (including a 35 mm film sequencer, toy keyboards and toy phaser guns) to achieve electronic-sounding effects without the use of laptops or programmed backing tracks."

They improvise on a lot of songs live. This is gonna be kinda confusing because both albums are named "Holy Fuck", but the first is their debut album, with the second being their most recent.
