"Before Lately" and "We Don't Need" - Cheyenne Marie Mize - folky, roosty, fragile
"Seeds" and "Into Your Lungs (and Around In Your Heart and On Through You)" - Hey Rosetta! -Paul Simon meets Counting Crows - brilliant!
"Set Your Heads On Fire" - The Black Box Revelation -from Belgium, cross the Black Keys with early Rolling Stones

"The Best of Richard and Linda Thompson" - need more be said?
"U22" - U2 - double live album. fantastic!
"Theatre is Evil" - Amanda Palmer and The Grand Theft Orchestra - former Dresden Doll - theatrical alto, Ben Folds. Not for the faint-hearted
"The O'l Razzle Dazzle" - Missy Higgins - lovely. I like it more than i thought I would!
"Port of Morrow" - The Shins -yeah! pop-rock!
"The Noisetrade Collection" - Robert Francis - folky and funky, think Ryan Adams
"Writer's Block" - Peter, Bjorn and John -folky, rocky, low-fi, smooth, breezy, fun

"Strange Communion" - Thea Gilmore - UK folkie, her anti-Christmas album, bleak and cynical.
