A Large Pile Of Vinyl

Ever since my record player has been up and running, the usual pile of CD's messily shuffled about my desk has been replaced by a much larger and much more inconvenient pile of records that are finally being put to proper use. Here's the best of the pile (what I've been spinning for the past week).
1Arcade Fire
Funeral


I bought this in Montreal. It felt super legit.
2King Crimson
In The Court Of The Crimson King


Bought in Amsterdam at a fantastic little record shop. The signage out front was this album cover.
3 Japandroids
Younger Us [single]


b-side: cover of Sex And Dying in High Society. Limited edition clear vinyl. It came with an airhead too. It was delicious. Younger Us might be my favourite Japandroids song. "Remember that night you were already in bed said 'fuck it' got up to drink with me instead?" Do I ever. Do I ever.
4Alexisonfire
Dog's Blood


Limited edition green coloured vinyl (700 copies, only available at their shows).
5Neutral Milk Hotel
In The Aeroplane Over The Sea


A vinyl essential
6Elliott Smith
Either/Or


This record gives me goosebumps errrrrrywhere.
7Radiohead
The Bends


Don't Leave Me Hiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiigh, Don't Leave Me Dryyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy
8 John Lennon
Singles Bag


Limited edition release for Record Store Day 2010. Three 7" Lennon singles with Yoko Ono b-sides (barf, for the most part).
9Mastodon
Crack The Skye


Red and Gold swirled vinyl. I bought during their tour with Dethklok last year.
10Coldplay
Viva La Vida


Coldplay rules. Fact.
11TV on The Radio
Dear Science


He's a what? He's a what? He's a newspaper man, and he gets his best ideas from a newspaper stand
12Godspeed You! Black Emperor
Lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas To


Post-rock awesomeness.
13The National
High Violet


I still owe money, to the money, to the money I owe. I never thought about love, when I thought about home.
14John Mayer
Continuum


Me and all my friends, we're all misunderstood. They say we stand for nothing and there's no way we ever could.
15La Dispute
Somewhere At The Bottom Of The River...


I bought this at their show (opening for AOF). Record 1 is beautiful white vinyl and record 2 has a wicked etching on the b-side. This is easily my most listened to record of the past couple of weeks.
16Bon Iver
Blood Bank


I bought this EP at their show last year in Galway, Ireland.
17Coldplay
Parachutes


When I counted up my demons, saw there was one for every day. I kept the good one's in my pocket, and lead the other one's away. (I think I have that lyric wrong but that's how it sounds in my head).
18Mono
Hymn To The Immortal Wind


An epic winter album. The warmth of the crackly vinyl makes it ever more wintery. If only I could come up with a way to listen to records portably so that I could walk though the snow with this spinning and crackling away...
