Jean-Christophe (of the Hiddentracks) says:
Why? - Alopecia
The Do - A Mouthful
Juno - Soundtrack from the motion picture (and a great movie, too) (trailer)
I'd like to mention two other records and one great song I've heard this year.
The Walkmen - You and me
Good songs, amazing voice, clever production.
The Chemical Brothers - We Are The Night
Just bought the LP - listening to it right now, actually. Fantastic stuff, as usual.
And THAT song: Sugar Man by Sixto Rodriguez. A symptom of its time (production means a lot here), but still a good song. I wonder what instrument they're using. I'd go for Ondes Marthenot.
