Ooh, those all sound exciting. Other things I see on the list:

Stephen Malkmus - Groove Denied
Snarky Puppy -Immigrance
Jenny Lewis - Wasted Youth (Single)

... and like a 100 other albums about which I know absolutely nothing that I may try to randomly sample in case any of it doesn't suck.

I really enjoyed the Karen O & Danger Mouse record, although it had a throwback vibe and honestly it felt like it could have been any of a number of women singing.

I tried to listen to Matmos and just couldn't do it.

I'm trying the Stephen Malkmus and thinking I can't listen to this either...

EDIT: ... ok, that one gets more listenable.

The Stephen Malkmus album is odd. It starts out like he's really going all-out on trying something different, but slowly morphs into sounding like all his other stuff. As much as I like his usual sound, I kinda wish he'd stuck to making this one a weird synth record, as it is it feels like an experiment he couldn't be bothered to finish.
