New Record Purchases

Since May 1:

  1. The Juan MacLean – DJ Kicks
  2. Broken Social Scene – Forgiveness Rock Record
  3. The New Pornographers – Together
  4. The Hold Steady – Heaven Is Whenever
  5. The National – High Violet
  6. The Dead Weather – Sea of Cowards
  7. Sleigh Bells – Treats

So far.  I still want to pick up the new albums from Gayngs and Crystal Castles, both released in the past week.  And I haven’t bought hip-hop in ages, but Flying Lotus (an 8.8 from Pitchfork is so rare) and B.O.B. released albums last week that are pretty highly acclaimed.  And all of this in the first half of a month that will also see new albums from LCD Soundsystem, Moby, Band of Horses, Janelle Monae (KCD, you’ll like this one), The Black Keys, and Tracey Thorn, as well as re-releases of two of my favorite albums of all-time – The Rolling Stones’ Exile on Main Street and The Cure’s Disintegration LP’s (with previously unreleased B-Sides).

It is going to be very difficult to do a year-end best-of at this rate.
