Post and idea copied from my thread on Superfuture. My post mainly concentrates on music, but if you'd like to mention film, literature, whatever, feel free. This is a pretty small list of things for me, but I figure it's a good start at the least. I'll try and contribute more later. Aslo, keep in mind that I'm terribly with descriptions of music.<DIV><BR class="khtml-block-placeholder"></DIV><DIV><SPAN class="Apple-style-span" style="font-size: 12px;">What good stuff got released this year that people might have passed up on? Some random stuff (I don't really like lists so in no particular order, although feel free to list yours however):</SPAN><SPAN class="Apple-style-span" style="font-size: 12px;"><BR style=""></SPAN><SPAN class="Apple-style-span" style="font-size: 12px;"><BR style=""></SPAN><SPAN class="Apple-style-span" style="font-size: 12px;">I really enjoyed the always fantastic </SPAN><SPAN class="Apple-style-span" style="font-size: 12px; font-style: italic;">Mississippi Records</SPAN><SPAN class="Apple-style-span" style="font-size: 12px;"> </SPAN><SPAN class="Apple-style-span" style="color: rgb(0, 102, 0); font-size: 12px; font-weight: bold;">Life is a Problem</SPAN> (http://www.boomkat.com/item.cfm?id=68740)<SPAN class="Apple-style-span" style="font-size: 12px;">, some fantastic devils music played by preachers and various other religious folk.</SPAN><SPAN class="Apple-style-span" style="font-size: 12px;"><BR style=""></SPAN><SPAN class="Apple-style-span" style="font-size: 12px;"><BR style=""></SPAN><SPAN class="Apple-style-span" style="font-size: 12px;">Anyone have a copy of their </SPAN><SPAN class="Apple-style-span" style="color: rgb(0, 102, 0); font-size: 12px;">Lipa Kodi Ya</SPAN> (http://httpwww.tonevendor.com/item/27092)<SPAN class="Apple-style-span" style="font-size: 12px;"> release that they could rip for me? Don't imagine you do, but I figured I'd ask.</SPAN><SPAN class="Apple-style-span" style="font-size: 12px;"><BR style=""></SPAN><SPAN class="Apple-style-span" style="font-size: 12px;"><BR style=""></SPAN><SPAN class="Apple-style-span" style="font-size: 12px;">I don't know that much about hip-hop, but I didn't see </SPAN><SPAN class="Apple-style-span" style="font-size: 12px; font-style: italic;">Blu and Exile's</SPAN><SPAN class="Apple-style-span" style="font-size: 12px;"> </SPAN><SPAN class="Apple-style-span" style="color: rgb(0, 102, 0); font-size: 12px;">Below the Heavens</SPAN> (http://www.undergroundhiphop.com/store/detail.asp?UPC=SIC014CD)<SPAN class="Apple-style-span" style="font-size: 12px;">appearing too often on year end lists and it ranked high with some people whose taste in hip-hop I trust better than my own (which isn't to say I havent been enjoying it as well). I also heard </SPAN><SPAN class="Apple-style-span" style="font-size: 12px; font-style: italic;">Ill Poetic's</SPAN><SPAN class="Apple-style-span" style="font-size: 12px;"> </SPAN><SPAN class="Apple-style-span" style="font-size: 12px; font-weight: bold;">The World is Ours</SPAN><SPAN class="Apple-style-span" style="font-size: 12px;"> getting recommended alongside this but I haven't found a copy yet.</SPAN><SPAN class="Apple-style-span" style="font-size: 12px;"><BR style=""></SPAN><SPAN class="Apple-style-span" style="font-size: 12px;"><BR style=""></SPAN><SPAN class="Apple-style-span" style="font-size: 12px;">Really liked the </SPAN><SPAN class="Apple-style-span" style="font-size: 12px; font-style: italic;">YACHT / Lucky Dragons</SPAN><SPAN class="Apple-style-span" style="font-size: 12px;"> </SPAN><SPAN class="Apple-style-span" style="font-size: 12px; font-weight: bold;">Nirvana</SPAN><SPAN class="Apple-style-span" style="font-size: 12px;"> or whatever that split is called, wavers between ambience, aggressive noise and... electro, sort of?
