every now and then, I go on a music downloading "acquiring" spree. I'm in the midst of one of them, gleaned from references on other blogs, ecstatic reviews (both media and personal), and things I should probably already have listened to, given the way other people talk about them.

so far, I've got:

  • Modest Mouse - Good News For People Who Love Bad News
  • Modest Mouse - The Moon and Antarctica (not the rerelease)
  • Ted Leo and The Pharmacists - Hearts of Oak
  • Pavement - Terror Twilight
  • Pavement - Slanted and Enchanted
  • The Walkmen - Everyone Who Pretended to Like Me is Gone
  • The Walkmen - Bows and Arrows
  • British Sea Power - The Decline of British Sea Power
  • Muse - Absolution
  • Mars Volta - De-Loused in the Crematorium
  • Death Cab for Cutie - Transatlanticism
  • The Wrens - Meadowland
  • The Shins - Chutes Too Narrow
  • Metric - Old World Underground, Where Are You Now?
  • Buck 65 - Talkin' Honky Blues
  • Batman - Arkham Asylum: Living Hell
