"Ever Since a Little Kid When I Started to Listen to the B-I-G Got Music in My Blood 'Til I D-I-E"

I recently saw Ratatouille, and I do have to say that it was just wonderfully animated. the story was, of course, heavy handed, so that put me off, but that's to be expected with a Disney film. Eastern Promises was watched right after we watched Ratatouille, and I must say that it was probably one of the most beautiful movies I've ever seen, on top of having one of the most brutal fight scenes. Not for the faint of heart, but definitely for everyone else.

British Sea Power - Do You Like Rock Music?
Love More (<3)
My buddy Casey and I were talking about this album and, from that convo, I decided that it sounds like a more detached, less full sounding Neon Bible, but that isn't to say that the album isn't amazing. The lyrics aren't as hopeless, but are hopelessly detached, and a 4 piece just can't get the same sound as a 7 (or more) piece. Still one of the most competent albums I've ever heard.
British Sea Power - Lights Out for Darker Skies
British Sea Power - Waving Flags
British Sea Power - Open the Door

Los Campesinos! - Hold On Now, Youngster...
Love More (<3)
Dancy and fun, Los Campesinos! bring English Dance Punk to a new level with this release. They got a lot of press for their last EP, and now they've shown why everyone was starting to think so highly of them: they're damn talented.
Los Campesinos! - Broken Heartbeats Sound Like Breakbeats
Los Campesinos! - This Is How You Spell "Hahaha, We Destroyed The Hopes And Dreams Of A Generation Of Faux-Romantics"
Los Campesinos! - 2007, The Year Punk Broke (My Heart)

This Will Destroy You - This Will Destroy You
Love More (<3)
As epic as any Post Rock album tries to be, but This Will Destroy You actually pulls it off. Mega Epic. (I would host the regular 3, but there aren't very many songs, and all of them are almost equally as awesome)
This Will Destroy You - They Move On Tracks Of Never-Ending Light
This Will Destroy You - The Mighty Rio Grande

Aliceffekt - Downtemperature/First Aid & Last Aid
Love More (<3)
So I'm honestly not quite sure about whether or not either of these album are albums or what the deal with Aliceffekt is because he's almost un-google-able, and what comes up is completely useless (well ... not completely useless). All I can tell is that this Aliceffekt creates some freaking awesome Glitch.
Aliceffekt - Motivation (feat. Zer1 & Funky-T)
Aliceffekt - Disco Me Peter feat. Johnny Hollow
Aliceffekt - Imitation
