Good list. I especially love the Arcade Fire album. Don’t forget these other albums though (also available at the library): Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings’ “100 Days, 100 Nights” and Animal Collective’s “Strawberry Jam”. Radiohead’s latest album, “In Rainbows”, is excellent and so far only available as a download from their website or iTunes. And a British band called Band of Bees has released a really catchy album called “Octopus” (not yet available at the library).
