Rusty, by Rodan
Med Sud I Eyrum Vid Spilum Endalaust, by Sigur Ros
Dear Science, by TV on the Radio

At Mount Zoomer, by Wolf Parade

Throw in there various tracks by Annuals, Cloud Cult, Department of Eagles, +/-Kanye West (yes, even some of the auto-tuned madness), Los Campesinos!, and Jay Reatard, just for good measure.
