Music 2009 update

I've been buying a lot of new music over the last couple months...some awesome stuff:

Dr. Dog - Classic sound, might be my favorite find of the year.
Dinosaur Jr.'s new album - Wall of badass noise.  Sick guitars.
Future of the Left - Angry and fun.
Thao with the Get Down Stay Down - Upbeat, dancey.
Dead Man's Bones - Grim, backed by a children's choir.
Specials' and Buzzcocks' Best Of albums - Classic sound because they are classics.
Them Crooked Vultures - Dave Grohl, Josh Homme, and John Paul Jones, 'nuff said.
The Dead Weather - Another crazy super band.  Jack White and others...makes me think of the wild west, dunno why.
Modest Mouse's newest (No One's First and You're Next) - Not their best but still damn good.
The Thermals' newest (Now We Can See) - Been loving The Thermals last two albums.  Lyrically in a class of their own.
The Hold Steady - Springsteen-y sound is a good time.

Maybe more later if I think of them.
