you know, it was about this time last year when people were calling 2006 a lame year for music. I have to say that is how I'm feeling this year. There are a couple ok albums, but I'd be hard pressed to do a top ten. I'm just hoping there are a few sleeper albums out there that will pop up later. any suggestions for albums that haven't had much press yet this year?

Melt-Banana's Bambi's Dilemma is awesome, but it hasn't gotten much coverage anywhere. Travesty!

This is not a namedrop list(you know who I am talking to). Just a few records that have come out(or will come out) this year that are a pretty damn good listen and possibly worthy of a top ten list. I hope this helps. Some of this stuff has received press, but not too much around here.

quiet down, little hater.
good records has no personal financial stake in any of these records. good records recordings is totally separate from the store.
pancakes for mattie records has absolutely nothing to do with good records. the guy that runs it just works there.
