- Aloha, Here Comes Everybody - I just got this the other day; it's not as wonderful as their last one, but there's some great stuff on it.
- Brian Wilson, SMiLE - duh
- Wilco, A Ghost Is Born - GOD I love this album. Pitchfork sucks.
- Arcade Fire, Funeral
- Interpol, Antics - probably the weakest album on this list
- Dungen, Ta Det Lugnt - Swedish classic rock, circa 2004. Unbelievable.
- Apostles of Hustle, Folkloric Feel - Broken Social Scene side project, featuring two of my favorite songs of the year back-to-back - "Energy of Death" and "Kings & Queens".
- AC Newman, "The Slow Wonder"
- Sonic Youth, Sonic Nurse
- The Walkmen, Bows and Arrows
- Morrissey, You Are The Quarry
- Sufjan Stevens, Greetings From Michigan - Yes, I know this came out last year, but I didn't get it until this year, and I love it.
2. Friday night, Kath and I rented Van Helsing, which turned into our own private MST3K viewing, especially since the guy playing Dracula appeared to be channeling Bono, right down to the faux-drunken stagger. Ominous chimes prompted such quips as "Sorry, it's just the piano tuner," and it quickly went downhill from there.
3. Saturday - Jongre's birthday + Scaryoke. I took pictures, which I haven't uploaded yet. Good times.
4. Sunday - band rehearsal. (!!!) Giants win.
5. Today - day from hell.
