2. Sufjan Stevens - The Avalanche
3. Kashmere Stage Band - Texas Thunder Soul 1968-1974
4. Nobody & Mystic Chords of Memory - Tree Colored See
5. The Long Winters - Putting The Days To Bed

9. Spoon - Telephono/Soft Effects EP

17. The Knife - Silent Shout
18. The Theater Fire - Everybody Has a Dark Side
19. Caribou - Start Breaking My Heart
20. Caribou - Up In Flames




Good to see Caribou on the list this week. They are one of my favorite bands currently making music, and I would really suggest checking out the kraut influenced Milk of Human Kindness or the more psychetronic Up in Flames if you haven't already. And no big surprise at #1, although it will be interesting to see how long they stay on this list as compared to Theater Fire, who seem to have been on it every week for the past couple of months. A lot of the rest of the list is kinda strange, huh? Two of the bands I've never even heard of. Guess which ones...

the Kashmere Stage Band is a pretty good record if you like funk and soul circa 1950's. Pretty good stuff

- Long Winters suck
- Drams rule
- I liked the Caribou (the band formerly called Manitoba) Milk of Human... record a lot when I first heard it but less with every listen. By listen 10 it was listed on eBay. The sounds are interesting and well executed, but it is a little soulless and slick and safe in a way. I feel the same way about M83.

Dan Snaith is Manitoba/Caribou.
There is no "band", conceptually.

I'm surprised to see Tom Petty on there. Not that he sucks or anything, but just weird to see that on the Good Charts.
