Two albums that I honestly believe have the rare distinction of living up to the hype: Of Montreal's new one and any of the material off of Panda Bear's second full length (which is really a collection of singles released over the past year or so). Anyone that was at SXSW this year (or pretty much any year for that matter) knows that hype is cheap, but both of these albums have been pleasant surprises for me so far this year.

I agree, I love that Of Montreal. Best thing they have done, well, ever. Which is surprising considering the length of their career. I also think that Panda Bear is worthy of all the praise, looking forward to getting it tomorrow.

I am quite a fan of that Deerhunter too though. Not sure if that was a hyped release, but it seemed p-fork talked about it quite a bit.

well its funny because even though I dig just about everything Deerhunter is influenced by, I just haven't been able to get into that record the way other people have. Maybe I need to listen to it a couple more times.

Hot Chip remix of Rehab for Amy Whinehouse is the shit. Everything else I have heard by her, not so much.

I would agree that with each release Of Montreal gets better and better.

Panda Bear - Bro's is the single, not the full length and has been out for awhile as far as I know. I got it off iTunes in December.... That would explain the Other Music list.
