    if you guys don't mind a plug, my best friend's band, Jaguar Club of NYC, just released an EP last week. Kinda early R.E.M. with a streetwise Smiths feel. You can hear it here. Also, they are of course on myspace.

    I feel old [​IMG]

    It's really a reissue, but I'll nominate this new one from Norton Records:

    THEE MIDNITERS - IN THEE MIDNITE HOUR!!!! (Whittier Blvd / Jump, Jive And Harmonize / Gloria / Love Special Delivery / I Found A Peanut / Welcome Home Darling / Land Of A Thousand Dances / Everybody Needs Somebody To Love / Never Knew I Had It So Bad / Empty Heart / Hey Little Girl (previously unissued) / Looking Out A Window / Money / Thee Midnite Feeling / Down Whittier Blvd (Godfrey vocal) CD adds Down Whittier Blvd / Devil With A Blue Dress / Good Golly Miss Molly / Dragon-Fly / Do You Love Me Pounding East LA rock n' roll! Original Whittier recordings of this legendary group's mid sixties stompers, collected together in one mad set for the first time! NO BALLADS!! Killer after killer of loud, tense, massively attitudinal teenage howlers- prime cut slammers that ram the Stones into a hot, crowded bullpen wearing long red capes and little else! For the first time, the universe outside East LA can dig the majestic slam of THEE MIDNITERS! Instant party never had it so good!

    I'm not sure of too many but

    Lupe Fiasco's Lupe Fiasco's Food and Liquor

    is pretty damned good. Certainly in a top ten of someone's I would think.

    Before radio/Clear Channel played "Crazy" approximately 50 times per day. I thought Gnarls Barkley's St. Elsewhere was really good. Johnny Cash's America V was good if you were in a certain mood to hear an old famous guy contemplate his impending death. I thought Sam's Town was a bit of a letdown.

    It's funny that I know none of the songs you guys posted here, I guess I gotta listen to some more current music.

    I thought I was well up on my current music, and half this stuff is unknown to me.

    Far as my top album for 2006 it would either be Soft Machine by Teddybears, or Amputechture by The Mars Volta.

    Wolves in the Throne Room -- Diadem of 12 Stars
    Venetian Snares -- Cavalcade of Glee and Dadaist Happy Hardcore Pom Poms
    Napalm Death -- Smear Campaign
    Rosesdead -- Stages
    Future beats 06 Mixed by Gremlinz
    Sikth -- Death of a Dead Day
    Skream -- Skream!
    Amit -- Never Ending
    Boxcutter -- Oneiric
