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:
1The National
High Violet


Signed by 3/5th of the band when I met them at Sasquatch 2010.
2Sufjan Stevens
The Age of Adz


Just spun this while incredibly baked, as intended.
3The 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
5The Rural Alberta Advantage
Departing


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 opened for...
6 Dan Mangan
Radicals 7"


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"
7Dan Mangan
Oh Fortune


Also purchased at the show (yeah, I dropped some serious cash). Signed by the legend himself.
8The Mountain Goats
Tallahassee


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.
9Menomena
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.
10Broken Bells
Broken Bells


"Buy this. Buy the record. Buy ten." - Sobhi
11Refused

Absolutely glorious full-size artwork. I'm so happy I own this.
13 Box of Dub 2

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.
