But in my tray right now...

Of Montreal- Hissing Fauna (soooo good!)
Aquaduct- Or Give me Death (love this too)
Jim Noir- Tower of Love (love the organ bits!)
Propellerheads- decksanddrumsandrockandroll (still one of my favorites)
Vanilla Sky Soundtrack (never saw the movie, but this is a cool mix)

PS- I can't wait until the Spring Mix swap!!!!!

Mine are stacked in an order kind of reminiscent of a work of stream-of-consciousness writing:

Graham Travis - Why Don't You Know Me Yet?
Laura Veirs - Year of Meteors
Death Cab For Cutie - We Have the Facts and We're Voting Yes
Death Cab For Cutie - Something About Airplanes
Harvey Danger - King James Version
Harvey Danger - Little By Little
The Long Winters - The Worst You Can Do is Harm
Neutral Milk Hotel - In The Aeroplane Over The Sea
The Long Winters - When I Pretend to Fall
Death Cab For Cutie - Transatlantacism
Death Cab For Cutie - Plans
The Long Winters - Ultimatum
The Orange Peels - So Far
Rhett Miller - The Believer
Wilco - Yankee Hotel Foxtrot

...

Hmm...

WIPTF is, sadly, still MIA.

Ultimatum is...um, in my house somewhere.

TWYCDIH and PTDTB are sort of jumbled in a Target bag with the following:

The Minus 5 - The Gun Album
Wilco - Yankee Hotel Foxtrot
R.E.M. - Reckoning
The Young Fresh Fellows - It's Low Beat Time / Doc Sharpie Is A Bad Man
Wilco - A Ghost Is Born
R.E.M. - Eponymous
The Beatles - Abbey Road
R.E.M. - Green
Various mix CDs
A bag of Ritz Chips
My 2006 W-2
A can of air-freshener
Three Lady Grey teabags


Is all of this supposed to tell us something about each other?

After looking back over my post and realizing I left out the location of PTDTB (!), I looked to my shelves: Sure enough, it was located between R.E.M.'s 'Green' and Regina Spektor's 'Soviet Kitsch.'

So, +1 for R.E.M.

R.E.M.'s "Green", was the "Frampton Comes Alive" for the 90's...

to everyone who included the Liars on their list, I give a big dirty-salty-kiss. :) Liars equals awesome.
(Ok silly question, anyone else stick the Liars on and feel like going to Africa to voodoo drum dance with those dried grass skirts and face paint? Cause I so do. Their music also seems to have some seductive power going on)

Yes, I do. Picked it up when they played with the Long Winters here in Toronto. They were the first act, and I enjoyed them immensely. You can listen to the SBD recording of their set at my Long Winters Music page, I believe. Menomena was good at what they do, but it just wasn't my cup of tea. I'll give their cd a listen, though. Maybe I'll enjoy that a bit more...?

For some reason, I didn't enjoy Menomena as much as WMMF either, though WMMF's set was spectacular! I bought the CD the moment their set ended, and they're probably my 3rd or 4th listened to band. Props to you for having the same taste in music as me (so far).

I do! I do! In my collection they are nearby The Long Winters because Barsuk artists are organized together and in the front.

I recently saw WMMF in Houston and then their return to Austin (first time playing their hometown since September). In Austin they were the headliners and played no less than six new songs with a seventh scratched off of the set list. I am hoping that this means a new CD to place next to Trying to Never Catch Up. Of course then that means that I have to rotate most of my CDs to the right.

Death Cab for Cutie - Transatlanticism (must come first because it was my introduction to idie music)
Death Cab for Cutie - Plans
The Long Winters - TWYCDIH
The Long Winters - WIPTF
The Long Winters- Ultimatum
The Long Winters- PTDTB
John Vanderslice - Time Travel is Lonely
John Vanderslice - Life and Death of an American Fourtracker
John Vanderslice - Pixel Revolt
All-Time Quarterback
Rilo Kiley - Take Offs and Landings
Rilo Kiley - The Execution of All Things
Rilo Kiley - More Adventurous
Jenny Lewis and The Watson Twins - Rabbit Fur Coat
What Made Milwaukee Famous - Trying to Never Catch Up
Nada Surf - The Weight is a Gift
Rocky Votolato - Makers

From there my Barsuk collection ends and I move into 5 Decemberists albums.

Starlight Mints - Built on Squares
Young Fresh Fellows - It's Low Beat Time/Doc Sharpie is a Bad Man
R.E.M. - Reckoning
The Gunship - The Gunship
The Court & Spark - Hearts
Minus 5 - Down With Wilco
Flat Duo Jets - Lucky Eye
R.E.M. - Green (It's kind of making a home with TWYCDIH right now.)
Neko Case - Fox Confessor Brings The Flood (Just got it today! Squee!!)
Air freshener
Teabags
Camel Wides

yowza, what a lark, I just read a post of mine from over three years ago. apparently I am no better organized now than I was then. when a crazy chick cut me off this morning on the way to work, the CD cases that went crashing the the floor were The Decemberists, Long Winters, Centro-matic (of course), Summer Hymns, The Theatre Fire, M Ward. apparently my taste in music hasn't changed much either.

i guess i fit in that category then. i alphabatize and then chronological within artist. i mean..it just makes sense!
