So, here goes nothing...
Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever | Talk Tight — Outstanding jangle pop from an Aussie band that channels the best of The Go Betweens and the Flying Nun bands.
Family Atlantica | Cosmic Unity — A sort of mish-mash of African styles jumbled together into one glorious whole. Feel-good music of the highest order.
David Bowie | Blackstar —We all know about this one.
Fumaça Preta | Impuros Fanáticos — I've waxed about this band so much that you all should know. But in case you missed it: Imagine Os Mutantes jamming with Captain Beefheart. This is pretty much what you'd get. MY FULL REVIEW.
Flamingods | Majesty — Sounds like a modern update of The Beatles' Indian forays, crossed with Cornershop and some recent indie.
Klaus Johann Grobe | Spagat der Liebe — Spacey, free-floating Krautrock. MY FULL REVIEW.
Ultimate Painting | Dusk — Excellent nighttime listening indie jangle rock. Echoes of Velvet Underground. MY FULL REVIEW.
Cate Le Bon | Crab Day — Cate gets weirder than ever, with some of the oddball tendencies of her DRINKS project spilling over into her solo work.
Tom Zé | Canções Eróticas de Ninar —Just another fantastic, weirdo album from one of my favorite artists of all-time. Takes traditional Brazilian forms and turns them on their ear.
Dinosaur Jr. | Give a Glimpse of What Yer Not — DJ continues the string of brilliant records that began with the reunion of the original trio. For old fuckers like me who grew up with them, this is just amazing.

The Rolling Blackouts and Ultimate Painting will both be on my year end list. Love them both.

I still haven't heard the Dino Jr.---should rectify that this week.
