Heavy Rotation

  • The Clientele -

    The Clientele: God Save the Clientele
    I love this record with its rich pop melodies and guitar feedback. Might be a little mellow for the kids today, but give it a listen on Sunday morning while having your coffee and reading the paper.

  • The National -

    The National: Boxer
    These indie darlings are well worth a listen to.

  • Ted Leo and the Pharmacists -

    Ted Leo and the Pharmacists: Living With the Living
    Hmmm...only way to describe it is Black Flag meets UB40.

  • Ryan Adams -

    Ryan Adams: Easy Tiger
    The alt-country king returns with something fantastic. This is one of my favorite records of 2007.

  • Bob Dylan -

    Bob Dylan: Blood On the Tracks
    I was cleaning out my CDs and forgot that I had this. I could listen to "Tangled Up in Blue" all day. I think this might be my favorite Dylan album.

  • Tegan and Sara -

    Tegan and Sara: The Con
    Go get this record. Do not delay. Sleater Kinney I'm over you.

  • Josh Rouse -

    Josh Rouse: Subtitulo
    Humor me. Just go get it. Give a listen to "Given' It Up" and you will thank me.

  • The Sea and Cake -

    The Sea and Cake: Everybody
    These guys are awesome. I can't decide who is dreamier Sam Prekop or Archer Prewitt. If you are looking for something to listen to this summer, this is it.

  • Stephen Malkmus -

    Stephen Malkmus: Pig Lib
    How can you not love the smart ass lead singer from Pavement? "Vanessa From Queens" is my favorite tune on this whole album. This album is filled with hypnotic melodies and sarcastic lyrics. Fans of Pavement will not be disappointed.

  • Dinosaur Jr. -

    Dinosaur Jr.: Beyond
    J Mascis is back. If you are a fan of Green Mind you will love this record.

  • Marvin Gaye -

    Marvin Gaye: What's Going on
    I love this record from start to finish. With lyrics about drug abuse, poverty, and the Vietnam War, this album was an immediate sensation and has endured as a classic of early-1970s soul. Get the remastered version released in 2002.

  • Urge Overkill - Urge Overkill

    Urge Overkill
    Urge Overkill: Saturation

    An awesome Chicago Band from the early 90's. I used to go see these guys all of the time at Metro, Empty Bottle, and Double Door. These guys played all over the city for a year straight. Check out "Sister Havana" and "Back on Me".

  • The Shins -

    The Shins: Wincing the Night Away
    GO GET THIS NOW...The Shins will change your life!

  • Josh Rouse -

    Josh Rouse: Nashville
    Just simple dreamy lyrics- I love sensitive boy rock!!!! I put his songs on mix tapes for girls I am trying to woo.

  • Cat Power -

    Cat Power: The Greatest
    Some people think Chan Marshall is a mess- I find her dreamy. Go get this record listen to it, then listen to Dusty Springfield, and then finish the evening off with a good belt of whiskey. Call me in the morning and we'll talk.

  • The Hold Steady -

    The Hold Steady: Boys & Girls of America
    Paste rated this album #2 in their best of 2006. I gave them a listen off of that review and let me tell you they rock. What I dig most about them is the fact they sound like a drunken Springsteen. This album is loaded with a ton of heavy guitar riffs and lyrics you can't understand. RUN DON'T WALK to your nearest record store and pick this bad oscar up.

Wait. The grand prize winner gets a "doggie massage"? Seriously? Are you sure you want to set that sort of precedent, exilegrrl? After all, it's not like he's not spoiled to shit already. Amirite?! But, that said, we'll certainly evaluate all the candidates fairly and cast our vote in accordance with the overall integrity of the competition. I dunno, though...I've seen one of those hairless mexican dogs around here, and he's pretty sweet.....


Miz B.-Your kidding me right? A hairless Mexican dog over Eli? Eli is going to be heartbroken by this.

Miz B

You wouldn't want his crown tarnished by a FIXED vote, would you?! Shouldn't he win the title fair and square? Not to equate the two, but I offer Taylor Hicks as Exhibit A, Sanjaya, Exhibit B, that 10 million dollar bid for the General Lee - I could go on and on....


The 10 million dollar bid for the General Lee was legit.....
Plus I'm in the energy business we don't play fair and square...

Miz B

Not so, dearest exilegrrl - the bid WAS a hoax (check out MSNBC's site, may I never type those words in a row again.) That being said, touche. I, however, am not in the energy business. Still, I do think Eli's pretty awesome...and I would definitely buy the Geek an Eli tee-shirt; he has a fondness for the line o'shirts produced by BI. His Basquiat shirt pales only in comparison to his Air Hockey homage. And then there's also his bubble gun...love the bubble gun....
