Deerhoof, "Department of Corrections"

I don't buy every Deerhoof record, because that would probably be too much Deerhoof. But I do own five of them, because it's all delightful stuff that I enjoy listening to. It's a balance, and I feel pretty good about where I landed.

Whiskeytown, "If He Can't Have You"

This is good. I like this. I should listen to more country.

Descendents, "Good Good Things"

While I know that people mostly love and remember the hyper-caffeinated juvenile stuff, which of course I enjoy as well, I think that I might enjoy when they recorded more serious songs more. Yes, part of that is just the contrast, but they really could do melancholy quite well.

Elf Power, "Will My Feet Still Carry Me Home"

I have FOUR Elf Power records? Man, what was I thinking?

Curren$y & The Alchemist, "Reese's Cup"

I love it when veterans like this get together for a record and are all business. No need to belabor the track, just a solid beat, a super fun piano part, a tight verse, a vocal sample. Done, ship it. Great stuff.
