    I never make these things. So when I say "Go see arms and sleepers at a 100 year old ballroom in Chicago.", I fucking mean it.

    This the the greatest new group I've heard in years.

    Simply incredible. If you get a chance to see them, do it. Take a long drive if you need to. Even if you don't like the band. Seeing them live is just an experience in its own.

    There have been so many cd's I haved wanted over the past year but I had no money for so my list just kept getting bigger as I found new music.

    I still need all the Appleseed Cast cd's. I have them all but I want to own the albums. They're one of my favorite bands and its so hard to find their albums. I'd have to order them online.

    Sunny Day Real Estate - "Diary"
    Sigur Ros - "Ágætis byrjun"
    Sigur Ros - "Takk..."

    All of the Owen albums. Its the same situation with The Appleseed Cast.

    Owls - "Owls"
    Make Believe - "Make Believe" EP
    Deathcab For Cutie - "The Photo Album"
    The Bitterlife Typecast - "Happy Endings For Lowlives"
    Isis - "Panopticon"
    Isis - "Oceanic"
    The Books - "Lost and Safe"
    The Books - "The Lemon of Pink"
    The Arcade Fire - "Funeral"
    Every Time I Die - "Gutter Phenomenon"
    Every Time I Die - "Burial Plot Bidding War"
    The Fall of Troy - "Doppelganger"
    The Red Chord - "Fused Together in Revolving Doors"
    Norm Jean - "O God The Aftermath"
    Silverstien - "Discovering The Waterfront"
    Anathallo - "A Holiday At Sea"
    Godspeed You Black Emperor - "Lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas To Heaven"
    Explosions In The Sky - "Those Who Tell the Truth Shall Die, Those Who Tell the Truth Shall Live Forever"
