Other Music of 2008

So what other music have I been buying besides last week's favorite?

You can see a fair amount of variation in there. Some of those are the latest albums from groups I collect. Others are me catching up on stuff I wish I'd found years ago. All that stuff from Thrice is based on a recommendation; it's worth a listen, but it's not something I'd normally buy. (It's actually four mini-albums based on the four classical elements.) The Violent Femmes collection is just something I should have bought years ago. The Moog Cookbook is something I've been searching for; I loved their first album. Godspeed You Black Emperor is probably one of the most interesting groups I've gotten interested in in the past year.
