songs that have kept my body warm and my soul clean

Thought I'd sit down and share my favorite albums of the past 3.5 months of mountain livin'... some of it's new stuff, some of it's older... it's all special. That, and I am bored and burned out on essay writing at the moment, so... here's a handy list for your list reading pleasure.

Also, I organized this chaotically because it was more fun that way.

awesome new things

Nature Anthem (2002) - this song is absolutely fucking precious! Seriously.
To Find Me Gone (2006)
Been So Long (2006)
Wincing The Night Away (2007) - not perfect, but still a way cool album
The Ham and Its Lily (2002) - "I called around to different barbers, and asked, um... if they could make me look like Danny DeVito...but with more hair... but younger!"
The Trials Of Van Occupanther (2006)
In a Beautiful Place Out in the Country (2000) - appropriate 'cause I live in a beautiful place out in the country...
Collective Dreamwish Of Upperclass Elegance - same as above, but broke instead of rich
Sewn (2006)
Love Vigilantes (2006) - somewhat hard to find... an excellent cover of a New Order track, really worth track
Live at the Pabst Theater, Milwaukee, WI - 02/07/2007 - if possible, get your hands on this set... Sam plays a bunch of new songs that are probables for Shepard's Dog...
Love Song Of The Buzzard (2007) - ...including this gem.
Spitting Venom (2007)
No Cars Go (2007) - a lock for one of the five best tracks of the year
Control (2002) - don't know how I never heard about this album until FIVE YEARS after its release
Magazine (2002)
Band of Horses at The Orange Peel, Asheville, NC - 03/16/2007 - last show of their tour; I was fucking ill, but still thouroughly enjoyed the show, got to hear a bunch of new songs
This Too Will Pass (2007)
Skyscraper National Park (2002) - same excuse as with the Pedro above
Drums and Guns (2007) - another great Low album

Okay, this mess is plump enough. Dig for long enough, though, and you might find something incredible and what-not. Happy aural hunting expedition.
