This is probably one of the most terrifying albums I've ever heard.
No joke, I'm scared FOR MY LIFE when I hear it.
But I can't help but listen to Exmilitary.
I don't know, maybe that's why I like it.
It's not necessarily a good album, but there's something so appealing to me about it.
Maybe it's because they sampled Black Flag in "Klink", but I don't think that's it.
I'm overanalyzing this.
Am I the only one feeling this way? Is anyone else feeling like they have to listen to this album?

My dear friend Oliver, who I have blogged about before, sent me a mix in the mail recently. I thought I'd share it with y'all here. Yeah, IT'S THAT GOOD. If you're into lo-fi or bands signed to Burger Records, you should listen to this.
My personal faves are most definitely Bad Attitude by Hanoi Janes, Portland Sucks by White Fang, and Young Hearts Spark Fire by Japandroids. Is is just me, or are Japandroids the Canadian version of No Age? But I digress. Presenting...
1. Sun Medallion- King Tuff
2. Bad Attitude- Hanoi Janes
3. Which Way Is Up?- Cause Co-Motion!
4. Deformative- Black Eyes
5. Caribou- The Jameses
6. I 10- Japanther
7. I Wanna Go Home- Shannon and the Clams
8. I Don't Wanna- Nodzzz
9. Sunlight- Swimsuit
10. I'm A Mess When You Are Gone- Dead Gaze
11. Portland Sucks- White Fang
12. Heaven's Stranger- Eat Skull
13. I'm Gonna Kill My Baby Tonight- The Mummies
14. Gyroscope- The Dismemberment Plan

P.S. Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! My family is having it's first ever vegan thanksgiving. Pray for us.
