These albums aren’t officially out yet, but they probably exist on your local torrent sites. I suggest giving them a spin.

The Hold Steady – Stay Positive

Javelins (members of Thunderbirds Are Now!) – Heavy Meadows

Deerhunter – Microcastle

Damien Jurado – Caught In The Trees

Also, as a reminder, The Cool Kids dropped a new 6-song mix tape yesterday titled “That’s Stupid.” I’m about to give that a listen right now; maybe I’ll write some more about it later.

UPDATE: The mix tape rules.

Super short post today as I’m swamped with school work. However, with the announcement of a fall tour in support of Feed The Animals, you can expect a Girl Talk-heavy post tomorrow.

Best of 2008 (so far).

Posted by ihtov on June 30, 2008

Sunday marked the halfway point for the 2008 MLB season, and, since baseball is still technically America’s pastime, I figured this means it would be a good time to post a current best of the year list. Obviously, being a music blog, there is going to be quite a bit of list posting. Now, I have not sat down and thought about this list whatsoever which means it’s a completely arbitrary list. These will be listed in no particular order and without ceremony. Videos coming shortly as I am slow to YouTube.

No Age – Nouns

Titus Andronicus – The Airing of Grievances

Death Cab For Cutie – Narrow Stairs

Re-Up Gang – We Got It For Cheap, Volume 3 (mix tape)

Girl Talk – Feed The Animals

Ratatat – LP3

Beach House – Devotion

Vampire Weekend – Vampire Weekend

 The Cool Kids – Cool Ass Ninjas (mix tape)

Sigur Rós – Með suð í eyrum við spilum endalaust

I’m at work for another 3 hours or so which means I’ll probably continue to edit this posting. I’ll try to add some links or videos or something to opiate the masses as the day drags on.
