Best thing I heard/bought this year was the Sunken Foal alubum on Planet Mu.... but I buy very little music these days, so not sure how relevant my opinion is :)

Lady Gaga, don't care that it's commercial. Synth pop at it's cheesy greatness.

One of my faves was Detrimentalist by Venetian Snares. The track "Bebikukorica Nigiri" is particularly good*.

As well as Chris Clark's Turning Dragon, Venetian Snares Detrimentalist, and the new Squarepusher album - Warp and Mu are killing it this year...

i quite like this one

the girl has that androgynous look that was prevalent in the 80s, its a refreshing change from mini sexpots of today.
