I personally prefer the melodic yet moody drum & bass sound of The Upbeats new album 'Big Skeleton'

Another album I like is the downtempo minimalism apparently in Moderats self titled album.

If Noisia had released their album by now, it would win all.

hai sa zic eu si niste romani care mi-au placut mult, ca se misca lucrurile in ultima vreme:

the pixels - fire exit
alexandrina hristov - om de lut

nici nu stiu ce cand a aparut..cred ca din 2009 e Swoon de la Silversun Pickups. un album foarte creativ si interesant a fost si Actor de la St. Vincent (la care gasesti si un live set superb pe Pitchfork - [link])

The Horrors - Primary Colours, it's an excellent second album that has been largly overlooked, reminds me of Joy Division and early Cure.

Haven't heard anything so great this year.
I personally like "... In Shallow Seas We Sail" by Emery

But, i'd say that:
Deadmau5's "For Lack Of A Better Name" [Good]
Tieso's "Kaleidoscope" [Fine, buts kinda different from the usual Tiesto albums]
