so far

Said the Gramophone's Sean has posted his top 5 albums of the year thus far, and in doing so he's inspired me to think about my favorites of '06 so far. And because we believe in quantity over quality here at gorilla vs. bear, we're going to do our top 8, in no particular order. Of course, I'm probably forgetting some, and if you ask us tomorrow it could be totally different, but we really, really like these:



Destroyer Destroyer's Rubies
Midlake The Trials of Van Occupanther
Sunset Rubdown Shut Up, I Am Dreaming
The Knife Silent Shout
Birdmonster No Midnight
Gnarls Barkley St. Elsewhere
Beirut Gulag Orkestar
Ghostface Fishscale

As StG also points out, Beirut has made a couple more tracks from his wonderful Gulag Orkestar available on his website. I've been enthralled by his work with since I first heard his demos back in February.

Beirut Mt. Wroclai (Idle Days) mp3

what is the point in listing a top "whatever" at any point besides year end; is it boredom? first, most bloggers, including you, chris, do not place any critique on anything you post, besides the all-too-often "one of my favorites of the year." also, with so many of these redundant "top 10" lists ending each year, they are often forgotten since most of the bloggers seem to like the same stuff. we certainly don't need "best of" lists every quarter. time to get a little more creative kids.

yeah, it's boredom. and the fact that i'm a pretentious asshole. but mostly boredom.

oh and it was also an excuse to talk about Beirut again, because i think he's good.

Anonymous commenters are the best!

If you're going to resort to third-grade name-calling and not at least add something relevant to the conversation, at least have the balls to leave your name.

And who cares if Chris is bored? Last I checked this was HIS site. Maybe you're bored (nay, boring is more like it) by commenting on Chris' boredom.

OK, well, see you ungrateful anonymous folks here again tomorrow when you download music without so much as a thanks.

I really want to hear that damn midlake album already. But what i've heard of beirut is great. Thanks for turning me onto it.

Didn't know midlake was out yet. I guess I better start looking for it.

Love the Sunset Rubdown album (but at this point I'm certifiably obsessed with Spencer Krug, so...), and what I've heard of Beirut and Destroyer.

Haven't heard a few of the others. I'll take them as recs. Thanks.

chris thanks for the list...it is always good to hear what you are listening too and what you are digging most...keep throwing us those best of whatevers...shit i have some more albums to go get.

7:26 PM  
Blogger Joe John said...

I love how the anonymous commenter states that three of these albums aren't even out yet...as if there isn't such a thing as internet leaks and import copies.

I'm definitely on the boat with Destroyer, The Knife, and Gnarls Barkley. I haven't gotten into Beirut quite yet.

How do you feel about The Age of Rockets? I can't decide how I feel about them.

mail me a copy of the new midlake. i've earned it. and you can't mention the albums unless they've been released for all to share. seriously. uncool. besides, did you listen to the division day album yet?

Blogger Bobby said...

I did my top 10 a few weeks ago, also out of boredom. It's nice that I can have a top 10 out of the first 4 months, and actually have a battle for the bottom placings. Good time for music!

(Please check out 14 year old Unicorns-influenced Damien Verrett on my blog!)

Although it's a decent list I'm surprised you left this one out:

His Name Is Alive, Detrola.

Hey! I have my list of 2006's Top 10 Anonymous Asshole Commenters up!

What about Dert, Voxtrot EP, Band Of Horses & Man Man yo?

Also, Raconteurs, Pearl Jam ( both not yet released), Hot Chip, J.Dilla, Liars, YYYs, Flaming Lips, Neko, Minus 5, Maritime, Love Is All (2005?), Cat Power, B&S, Jenny Lewis & The Watsons, Eagles of Death Metal (suprisingly good), Grizzly Bear, Gomez, Calexico, Crystal Skulls, Built To Spill and Grandaddy? T.I. is pretty good too even. Damn, who said 2006 wasn't go be all that great?!

I know people love Destroyer.

But of those albums, Sunset Rubdown is by far the best.

Krug is a genius.

I love the new Birdmonster album! It is the rocks top. I think they'll be getting out to the east coast this summer.

that Beirut track is ace, thanks

Anonymous matthew said...

Ranking a top 10 for the first third of the year is a little silly, since most people will also do it at the half-year point...though in Chris' defence, he did do his year-end list in November, so this is like his half-year list. And besides, what kind of person criticizes someone for indulging in their whims while blogging?

Oh right, an anonymous coward.

thanks matthew. i think. haha.

Trolls... can't live with 'em, pass the beer nuts.

I am really, really loving the Beirut... so thanks to Chris and everyone else who's helped push that particular wagon along.

And not that you're interested, but I threw up my top 20 tracks of the year so far a few posts ago, and got some nice responses. So... it's never too early, for those who love lists.

What about the Islands CD, that thing is epic and has been since its leak in 2005.

Personally Islands and The Elected CD would top my list right now.
And dont forget Voxtrot.(Course its a EP)

宏通數碼總座 謝儒生通姦判刑

〔記者林嘉東/台北報導〕去年底取得承製健保新卡業務的宏通數碼科技公司,公司總經理謝儒生被控與鄧姓空姐通姦案,士林地方法院昨天宣判,法官認為謝某曾向江女自白,以及親手寫下曾與鄧女發生性關係,加上謝某84年間與另女搞過婚外情也被抓包,素行不佳,各判處2人3個月有期徒刑,減為有期徒刑1個月又15日。

記者收到判決書後,曾透過宏通數碼公司員工聯繫謝儒生,但並未聯繫上,無法得知他對法院判決的看法。

判決書指出,46歲的謝儒生於90年在飛機上邂逅現年34歲的鄧姓空姐,謝為與鄧女交往,隱瞞已婚;隔年6月,一起到北縣某汽車旅館發生性行為。

94年9月底,謝儒生與元配江女乘坐阿姆斯特丹飛往曼谷的飛機時,來服務的機上空姐竟是鄧女,謝某嚇了一跳卻不動聲色,但鄧女自此知悉謝儒生已婚,2人仍於隔年11月在台中某酒店發生性關係。

95年底,謝、江2人婚姻出現裂痕,隔年初雙方協議離婚,江女並因起疑謝出軌,暗中錄音存證,於去年向檢警提出告訴。鄧女到案辯稱得知謝某已婚,就沒有與謝發生關係;謝則全盤否認,並指遭江女陷害。

不過,法官調查,謝某曾向江女自白95年11月,與鄧女在台中某酒店發生性關係,有江女提供的錄音為證。

另有謝某親手書寫的手札記有:「因為有家室,所以所有約會必須在MOTEL,不能帶她回家」等語,加上謝某84年間,與薛女有過婚外情,法官認為謝某素行不佳,分別依通姦與相姦罪,判謝某與鄧女各3個月有期徒刑,減為有期徒刑1個月又15日。
