KevO, have you seen Russian Futurists live? The dude is coming to Brantford in a few weeks. I haven't heard Our Thickness is it much different then the songs up on Myspace?

I haven't seen him (them?) live before, nope.. Hoping to at the Drake here in Toronto though in a few weeks. On the MySpace site, there are 2 tracks from Our Thickness.. 'Paul Simon' is the title track and 'STill Life' is on it too. I can't listen to the other two though - shitty internet connection!

Man sometime I really should bring a bottle of bourbon down and we'll hang out some night New Rider.

My list is the exact same as yours, save the Isbell which I am not sold on yet. I would stick Elliot Smith "New Moon" in there.........


ps. The Dylan tribute "I'm Not There" seems like it could make some lists when its released.

Akron/Family - Love Is Simple

The National - Boxer

Field Music - Tones of Town

Iron & Wine - The Shepherd's Dog

Kings Of Leon - Because Of The Times

and the one I'm really digging right now: Wintersleep - Welcome To The Night Sky

Wilco, Ryan Adams, Radiohead, Arcade Fire and Miracle Fortress all get honourable mentions. I thoroughly enjoyed their releases, but none of them got as many spins as those above.

This is all subject to change at any given moment.

I'm surprised to see The Stage Names at the top of your list. I like it, but think it was a disappointing follow up to Black Sheep Boy (which I thought was absolutely brilliant).

Also surprised to see Ashtray Rock, which I thought was complete garbage.
