My America Is Watching Tigers Die-They're heavy. Check them out. For fans of HeavyHeavyLowLow/whateverothergrindorwhateverbandyou like.
City and Colour-I'm floored, how did I miss this.
Say Anything-They need no introduction,...Is A Real Boy is beyond amazing.
Saves The Day-Give Stay What You Are a spin, I'm glad I did. I could never get into this cd for so long and it finally clicked.
Circa Survive-I gave Juturna a spin for the first time in a long time and it's unbelieveable. I can't believe I haven't given it a full listen in so long.
Cute Is What We Aim For-Don't care what you say, this is one of my most anticipated cds this year.
You, Me, and Everyone We Know-Make all the comparisons you want, they have more style than just about any band in pop right now.

Feist - Open Season

I wasn't expecting much from an album comprised mostly of remixes, but I figured I like Feist enough to drop the extra $9 it cost me on shipping (Supposedly it's only being released in Canada, so $9 was the cheapest shipping available). It was so worth it. I find it really relaxing, and it's pretty much all I've been listening to this past week.

Rage Against the Machine - entire disography - busted this out this week, so good. IMO the best band from the 90's.
Dustin Kensrue (solo Thrice) - Ursus Veritas
Brandtson - Hello, Control
Taking Back Sunday - Louder Now

i still haven't listened to that, and i downloaded the leak maybe a month ago? the first song was all i've gotten through so far and i really liked it. i haven't been in much of a pallett mood lately though, i guess.

Well, I just bought the album yesterday, and I wasn't even aware that it was out, I thought it came out this week, but apparently it came out last Tuesday (I'm assuming).
