Bought a good album this year? Shout them out.

Update (09/12/08): Perhaps this will provide some relief in the future (click me)

Not anything really jumping off for me….

There have been a lot of songs that I’ve liked. But didnt really get into the albums as much as one would think. Maybe we are getting older....

There have been some I would consider "keepers".

I really like the Los Campesinos! CD, The Death Cab CD, Sigur Ros, and The Bon Iver CD. With Bon Iver I don’t know if I like his background (man leaves his life, hides out in a cabin a writes songs about past relationships without any intentions of it doing anything) and the concept of the album more than the music or if I really like it. I know I was disappointed in the My Morning Jacket CD. So can’t count that one.

It's not a new album, but you should really check out "Zwan - Mary Star of the Sea". It's the one and only album by this band; Billy Corgan's band after the Smashing Pumpkins broke up the first time. Came out in 2003, but not many people know about it, and it's phenomenal. One of my favorite CDs of all time.

On another note, I wish I could have made it to the show last night at the Berkeley. Hope you've been doing well, bro!
