  • Pavement. That was/is a fast-moving obsession. One day, one of the few tracks of theirs I owned came up on shuffle, and I immediately was moved to go out and buy their two greatest albums, CRCR and S&E. A couple months later, I jumped on the chance to see SM & Jicks at First Ave., Minneapolis. Still the best $15 I've spent in 2008!
  • Guided By Voices. Thank you, John Sellers, for writing an obsessive music memoir that got me hooked on all things Pollard. I don't know how I got by without Alien Lanes and Bee Thousand before this!
  • Pixies. Hello! Don't even know where to begin with this, except they've been blasting from my car windows for the last couple months. It's glorious. Nothing better than getting out of class after a long day and putting on "Debaser" at full volume. (This has also sparked an ivestigation into the Breeders)
  • Wolf Parade, Sunset Rubdown, actually all things Spencer Krug. All I have to say is "I'll Believe in Anything" and "Shut Up I Am Dreaming Of Places Where Lovers Have Wings" are possibly two of my favorite songs of all time.
