LCD Soundsystem, "Yeah" 12"
David Grubbs/Avey Tare split 12"
PiL, Album LP
Comets on Fire, Blue Cathedral CD
the Replacements, Pleased to Meet Me CD
Bedhead, Whatfunlifewas CD
Do Make Say Think, & Yet & Yet CD
Explosions in the Sky, The Earth is Not a Cold Dead Place CD

QoTD: I liked the intro to the Scissor Sisters' demo (never properly released but floating on p2p) that was about a team of scientists who found a vagina-shaped cave leading to the Valley of the Scissor Sisters. Proper releases, though, I guess the intro to "America's Most Blunted" on Madvilliany.

TMBG - The Spine Surfs Alone EP
Kathleen Edwards - Failer
V/A - Paste Magazine vol. 11 Sampler
Guster - Lost And Gone Forever
The Thrills - So Much For The City

QOTD: No immediate answer -- opening lines don't really have the same impact as they do in books, do they?

I just got Mobb Deep's "Amerikaz Nightmare," and the album is on fire. I was disappointed with "Infamy," but the Infamous Mobb Deep has finally returned.
