I am thinking about mine

So far I got

1. Yo La Tengo - There’s a riot going on
2. Arctic monkeys- Tranquility Base
3. Andres Calamaro - Cargar la suerte
4. Low - Double negative
5. Stephen Malkmus - Sparkle Hard
6. Iggy Pop and Underworld - Teatime dub encounters

You guys heard anything new (not reissues) that hit the spot?
