Just started this year, but I love my La Dispute package, Manchester Orchestra's new one sounds AMAZING, and anxiously waiting for the new Kevin Devine too.
good call on La Dispute. i was fortunate enough to grab one of the first 100 pre-orders of Somewhere at the Bottom... the hand-screened D-side is gorgeous!

Normally my hipster-tool instincts would suggest contempt for so many new people getting into vinyl, but I'm really loving all the new people getting into it because it's making a lot more records available and it's fun sharing love of the format with others. I'd say these have been my favorite releases on vinyl of the year:
1) Minus the Bear - Acoustics
So crisp, so beautifully done, and with a really great tracklist. The baby blue/cream swirl is gorgeous, too.
2) As Tall As Lions - You Can't Take It With You
Great album, and the vinyl had a bunch of great bonus tracks. Picked mine up at their in-store acoustic set at Rasputin, so they signed my copy (along with my self-titled and Into The Flood) to me and my now-fiancee.
3) Discovery - LP
Just a really fun record. It has its ups and downs but it's a great party album to throw onto the turntable.
4) Andrew Bird - Noble Beast
180 gram double-LP with gorgeous artwork, and you can really feel the warmth on this record. This was actually a birthday present for my fiancee.
5) Matt & Kim - Grand
Albums like this one just work so well as a cohesive work, I think someone is robbing themselves of an experience when they just play at track or two from it. Definitely the pair's best.

I got minus the bear's planet of ice last year which was awesome. I also picked up Discovery's LP on vinyl, it was a good addition, love spinning osaka loop line.

I finally found Ratatat's self titled on vinyl a couple weeks ago which was cool.

Too much haha. It's definitely holding the "crown jewel" title in my collection for awhile. I figured I probably wouldn't have too many opportunities to pick it up so I just kinda went for it.
Well I see it go for ebay between 50 and 100 so if you got it anywhere between those prices, you did good

I started collecting and listening to vinyl this year, so I picked up a lot. I love the packaging to The Alchemy Index and I have Enema of the State and Beggars on pre-order, can't wait. I picked up way much more than that and my collection's grown a lot this year. I started out by buying albums I knew I loved and now I'm picking up newer releases and trying to find other albums.
