New Charles Gayle, Death Grips, and Liars are my favorites of the year. I'm also kinda into the Kitty Pryde EP and I'm a BIG fan of the Trixie's Big Red Motorbike compilation.
I also checked out this weird noise experimental project called Terrorist Lipgloss. If you can get past the tin-foil hat lyrics, the newest album is really impressive and has a pretty wide range of sounds. I can't give it a full endorsement just because of a few spots of some subtle racism and homophobia, but it's definitely something everyone should hear just to hear. The official website is through this esoteric Illuminati conspiracy site of sorts Sentimental Corp, and the free download links were down, but when I emailed the webmaster he/she sent me this link for download. (Oh, duh, EDIT: just to remove all vagueness, this is a free online release where the download link just went down. I'm not just freely linking to a pirated copy of an album on RBF heh)
