stopping to digest

I've given most of yesterday's binge a listen-through, and I've divided them into rough categories, all of which are fairly self-explanatory.

[Updated: Monday, May 10] listened to the other stuff, added a new category:

    Fuck, Why Wasn't I Listening to This When It Came Out?
  • Pavement - Terror Twilight
  • Pavement - Slanted and Enchanted

    Love at First Listen:
  • The Walkmen - Bows and Arrows
  • Death Cab for Cutie - Transatlanticism
  • The Shins - Chutes Too Narrow
  • Metric - Old World Underground, Where Are You Now?

  • Ted Leo and the Pharmacists - Hearts of Oak
  • British Sea Power - The Decline of British Sea Power
  • Modest Mouse - The Moon and Antarctica (not the rerelease)
  • Les Savy Fav - Inches

    Will Probably Grow On Me:
  • The Walkmen - Everyone Who Pretended to Like Me is Gone
  • Modest Mouse - Good News For People Who Love Bad News
  • The Wrens - Meadowland

    Probably Won't Grow On Me:
  • Muse - Absolution
  • Mars Volta - De-Loused in the Crematorium
  • Buck 65 - Talkin' Honky Blues
  • Erlend Oye - DJ Kicks (one amusing track, though)
