Good to have you back. Honestly, though, the only record on that list I definitely want to buy sound unheard is the Radar Brothers, and only a few others tempt me.

On the other hand, if you'd like a copy of the new Silver Mount Zion, I'm going to get rid of it...

Not falling in love with Bloc Party? The new Radar Brothers is okay -- I heard it yesterday. If you like them, you'll like this one, but it's not extraordinary.

If you like border music at all, that Los Super Seven album could be the one to get.

I've got the Aqualung, too, but it won't play on computers, which knocks off 80% of my listening...

don't forget Blocked Numbers by Crystal Skulls (Suicide Squeeze) -- really fun record! (And avoid the Hella double-disc like the plague.)

But that Hella double-disc is really getting press that makes me want to look at it. Both the good and the bad reviews make it sound intriguing...
