|A Pile Of Vinyl On My Coffee Table|
I just moved into a new place with a friend a week and a half ago. We're
both pretty lazy, and every record we have listened to (more or less) is
sitting on one of the various tables in the living room. Now, because of the
desperately gripping nature of this subject matter, I will cut right to the
chase. The albums are as follows:
Signed by 3/5th of the band when I met them at Sasquatch 2010.
The Age of Adz
Just spun this while incredibly baked, as intended.
|3||The Mountain Goats|
We Shall All Be Healed
Signed by John Darnielle. I've just recently decided that this is pretty much the
best album ever (it's not even my favourite tMG album, but join me will you, on this
hyperbolic voyage). It was my first album by what is now my second favourite
band, and I connected with it for the first time while in the taxi back to my friends
house after seeing my first favourite band live. I have a friend who is a very
talented tattoo artist, and if he feels that he is confident that he could depict this
album artwork well, I'm going for it as my first tattoo.
ohhhhhhhhh we used to dream, now we worry about dying

Translucent red vinyl purchased at their Nov. 9 show. Signed by all three members.
They're great people, and it was in incredible show. That drummer, my word. They
|6|| ||Dan Mangan|
My second time seeing him in the past two months but this show was otherworldy.
It was the last stop of the tour, and the largest hometown crowd Mangan's ever
played. It was magical. I won't describe it now because we'd be here all day, but
if you get a chance to see him, do not miss it. He was touring this 7", and opened
with the single "We Want To Be Pleasantly Surprised, Not Expectedly Let Down"
Also purchased at the show (yeah, I dropped some serious cash). Signed by the
|8||The Mountain Goats|
Came out 10 years ago! Happy Birthday yay!!!! The group of awesome people at
Crooked Neighbour have put together a tribute album called "Tallahassee Turns
Ten." It is a cover of the entire album, each song by a different artist. And who,
you ask, gets the honour of playing the classic No Children? Laura fucking
Stevenson. Awwww yeah, my cassette is in the mail.
Friend and Foe
Purchased at their recent show at the Biltmore Cabaret, my favourite venue in
Vancouver. Fun fact: my new place is a five minute walk/ten minute stumble form
the Biltmore! Happy days! This record is sweet, the front cover has a revolving
wheel that displays the different track names and slightly different artwork. I had
my choice of their 3 most recent albums (I limited myself to one, thankfully) and I
think I made the right choice.
"Buy this. Buy the record. Buy ten." - Sobhi
The Shape of Punk to Come
Not overrated fuck you.
Bon Iver, Bon Iver
Absolutely glorious full-size artwork. I'm so happy I own this.
|13|| ||Box of Dub 2|
Dubstep and Future Dub
I didn't own anything that could be used for DJing, so this caught my eye and I
bought it. It contains tracks from Kode 9, Digital Mystikz, Skream, Pinch,
Ramadanman, Cotti, Sub Version, and more.
The Moon & Antarctica
Everything from here to the end is my roommate's. I fucking wish I owned this. I
