There are few bands that I will listen to or purchase their records outright. The Roots, Blackalicious, Thievery Corporation, Gorillaz, DJ Shadow are a few of those bands/people. The following two groups are a couple more of those types that feel can do no wrong. I pretty much like everything Boards of Canada put out along with Radiohead Thom Yorke (this new solo stuff, the first Unkle collaborations etc).

Mp3: Thom Yorke - "The Eraser"
Pre-Order: Eraser from Insound drops July 11th.

This is Yorke's first solo album. The record features nine new tracks and was produced by Nigel Godrich. Godrich has long worked with Radiohead (although not on their upcoming 7th record) along with being an engineer, producer or mixer for Paul McCartney, Travis, Beck, Pavement, Air and The Beta Band to name a few. Also check out the Radiohead blog Dead Air Space.

Mp3: Boards of Canada - "Heard from Telegraph Lines"
Buy: Trans Canada Highway EP from Insound here.

Building upon their great 2005 release, Campfire Headcase, Boards of Canada released an EP entitled Trans Canada Highway. This new EP is not nearly has upbeat and is darker than the 2005 release. This isn't necessarily a bad thing, like I said I have yet to find a Boards of Canada record I don't like.

However, Goodrich produced Pavement's cruddy albums.
