Haha, no... I happen to have read Ted, White, and Blue. It's hard to believe that it isn't a joke. It's ridiculous how bad it is. I consider his political viewpoints prime entertainment. His music is fun, especially for someone whose musical taste is as guitar-centric as mine.

Cage the Elephant's new album, Thank You Happy Birthday, which is a little disappointing. Anybody else heard it yet?

Not yet man, don't know if I will if it was disappointing either--what's the best song on the album? Maybe I'll look it up, XD

I've been really hooked on this band lately, the xx. I heard they're super old news to everyone in-the-know :/ But I just found them. So I'm still obsessed, XD.

They're kind of like My Bloody Valentine in the sense that they use their voices more as instruments, and I dig. Good, "I'm going to write now." music

I love that Kings of Leon have started their past two albums out with a trippy-ass song. Closer and The End are both mind-bending. Gahd I love it.

As I've not been able to follow all the posts here, I'd like everybody to post his best 2010 discoveries.

To limit, I propose only two youtube links, one for something you found yourself, one for something you were pointed to. Preferably live videos, but you can post clips or photos if there's nothing else of correct quality. And as I know it's cruel to be limited like that, I propose that you add runner-ups but without the youtube link.

To clarify: it's YOUR discoveries of 2010. The band can be 20 years-old, it's not a problem if you just heard of them.

As an example, here are mine:

Found myself: Shaka Ponk.

Pointed by a friend: Mad Caddies.

(Yes, I'm a bit late, I intended to ask that at the beginning of the year... Oh well, it's still January?)

I found We Are The Fallen.

Was pointed to Sirenia. (also look at The Other Side by them)

I also found Tristania (Exile), and realized that Apocalyptica did string tributes to Metalica. Karsh Kale with Distance was a very close second though along with Amberian Dawn. My second to pointed to would be In This Moment.

This is the most serious post I've made here in a while... You all MUST watch this video. It is beyond incredible. It could be the coolest thing I've ever seen.

I just downloaded Pitchfork's Top 50 Albums of 2007 (yeah, I'm still living in the past, shoot me) and some of the artists are blowing my mind right now. I highly recommend checking the list out: http://pitchfork.com/features/staff-lists/6753-top-50-albums-of-2007/

Black Magic Woman, covered by Santana; made famous by Fleetwood Mac.

His guitar work is beautiful, and the rest of his band is genius. If anyone besides me can pick out the bassist's work, listen and be amazed.

Gawd... I love the intro riff. This is as sexy as guitar gets.

Radiohead's album "In Rainbows".

Honestly, finding a new album is like crushing on a girl... You like what you hear, then you get used to it, and in the end, you know who you really love because you can hear every single screw up, every out-of-place track, and you love them all the same.

Wow. That was cheesy, yet strangely compelling.

So, yeah. Radiohead!
