Busy Week Not Being Busy

Just got my wisdom teeth out yesterday and was told to take a week off - all in all not bad. At- least it wasn't until I thought my Sputnik account was gone for good yesterday! Just came back today! Here are some albums I've picked up for my week of boredom/and or oldies getting back in the rotation!
1Tom Waits

I will probably never again make a "dig" list without including one or numerous Tom Waits albums. I've actually had this for quite a while and am giving it numerous closer listens. The guy is hands down a musical genius! Here's to getting pumped for his double disc live album in a few weeks and hoping he tours real soon! FYI - this list could literally consist of every single one of his albums as they've all been destroying my free time for the last 6 months!
2Built To Spill
There Is No Enemy

I actually went to Newbury Comics last week with the sole intent of purchasing some new stuff for my "mini vacation" of sorts and found this. Never heard a single song or note played by this band but had heard good things and found it brand new for $6.99! Sounds pretty cool so far.
3Sonic Youth

Going to see these guys in about three weeks or less. Have quite a bit of their stuff but decided to pick up this and Dirty so I'd have a good amount of their material beforehand. This has only got one background listen in and I have yet to listen to dirty. I usually find all Sonic Youth albums to be growers and expect these two to follow - The Eternal however is slowly climbing up into one of my favorites for this year (although it's a list that could easily cover 100 albums!).
4Elliott Smith
Roman Candle

When I used to download music way back in the day - I had every Elliott Smith album with the exception of this. I finally got around to purchasing them again with the exception of this until now. Have also yet to listen but as always expect impressive things!
5Thelonious Monk

Under-appreciated for sure! This album is undeniable.
6Sigur Ros
( )

An old friend. Album is incredible. I need to get on top of this DVD that is spoken so highly of around here - never seen it!
7Leonard Cohen
Songs Of Love And Hate

Took me a few listens to see how great he really is - this is my second album of his and the transition seems a little easier. Truly influential.
8The Beatles

I've been a huge Beatles fan for quite a while now - and of all their post Rubber Soul albums - I never quite understood why many regarded this as their best. Again - when talking about me and the Beatles this could've than still be considered a classic - just not as "classic" as the others. However with time, this has become just as loved as everything else they've done. There will never be another Beatles - period.
Axe To Fall

Albums slays. Converge never disappoint.
10David Bowie
Space Oddity

Been looking for this album for upwards of a year and feel as though it could be out of print...? I found this at some obscure record store brand new for $8 and have to point out the obvious - it was a complete steal.
11Johnny Cash
At San Quentin

All of the American series is life-changing. Folsom Prison is also a classic so this had to have followed suit, and it does. Legend.
12Depeche Mode
Playing The Angel

Picked up Violator quite a while back and feel in love. Sounds Of The Universe was very good for me and I also expect quite a bit from this when I get around to it. Can't believe I put getting into these guys off for so long.
13Between The Buried And Me
The Great Misdirect

Gotta admit - as a huge Between The Buried And Me fan this has fallen on the back-burner lately. Between all the great releases of 2009 and my recent purchasing spree this sorely needs some time alone and hopefully it will happen soon. The 4 to 5 times I have listened to this however are very promising.
14Regina Spektor

Picked this album out back about a month or two ago now with no prior knowledge of her music except word of mouth promotion. While my friends will probably have my head for listening to this (until maybe they hear it) that will absolutely not take any enjoyment out of it for me. Spektor really pulls off her own thing quite nicely.
15Tom Waits
Mule Variations

So I went against my rule against making lists and included Mr. Waits twice. I can't stress enough how much of a total genius this man is - and what inspiring music he creates. Once again the entire list could've easily have just been his discography and would've literally perfectly displayed what I've been listening to.
