Since it seems most of us are on a similar musical wavelength-- any recommendations?

Even though Flav would say not to believe the hype, that Arcade Fire cd is pretty good.

There were a couple of really great local releases this year that will not get any kinda national press, but need to be heard.

Harlan T. Bobo - Too Much Love
This is hands down the best record to come out of Memphis in several years. Produced by Tim Proudhomme of the band Fuck and with members of the Reigning Sound & Viva La' American Deathray. An album about complete obssesion and a failing relationship. Harlan was hand making all the covers. No two were the same. After making and selling over 600 hand made sleeves, he was still having a hard time keeping up with demand so he just started selling them with one cover. We've had a terrible time keeping this thing is stock at Shangri-La becuase everytime we play it, whoever is in the store buys a copy. A masterpiece I tell ya! As far as a sound comparison, I'd say it's kinda folky Tom Waits meets early Beck.

Andy Groom's Living Room - Gratefull to Burn
The album that Syd Barrett & Wilco would make together. Great psychedelic alt-folk.

Don't take this as a shameless plug, but if your into giving either of these a try. You can order them from Shangri-La Records at :
http://www.shangri.com/Store.html

Other great releases of 2004 you might not have heard:
Albert Ayler - Holy Ghost 9 CD box set - God bless the fine people at Revenant who have outdone themselves yet again.
Rogue Wave - OUt Of The Shadows - great power pop
Iron & Wine - Our Endless Numbered Days - Sam Beam left his four track in his bedroom and joined up with producer Brian Deck (RRM/former Califonian)
Andrew Bird - Fingerlings 2 - Live & Mostly solo Bird material, I dig seeing this guy live when he is playing without his band.

go ahead and rag on me for this, but i am VERY excited about the upcoming NIN album. i can only listen to so much massage-esque new age happy place music before i start to go batshit nuts.

i can't relate much to NIN in a lyrical sense anymore, but i still dig his musical stylings. and his ass.

in contrast, i second mike's Iron and Wine recommendation.

I just finished listening to the Harlan T Bobo cd I ordered from the good people at Shangri-La. It's everything Mike said it was (and then some). You should order it...

I just picked up The Rolling Stones "Sticky Fingers" last night, and I have been listening to a lot of Hendrix's "Axis: Bold as Love" as well. Must be some sort of classic rock vein in my music mind.

The CD is still available and is now a proper release (it's shrinkwrapped and no longer a CDR). He also has a christmas CD that is still a hand made type thing.

it's almost a year old, but i recently discovered Those Poor Bastards, they have a full length and a cd, both are excellent southern gothic sounding discs. laugh if you will, but i am enjoying the living shit out of Hank III's Straight to Hell, also.

In no particular order...

Uncle Tupelo - March 16-20, 1992
12 Rods - Live @ The Turf Club 2001
Girl Talk - Night Ripper

I can safely say I've listened to those on a near daily basis for the past month or so... In addition to Roots and Crowns, of course.

I am still stuck on that 12 Rods bootleg... Also been digging Chin Up Chin Up's "This Harness Can't Ride Anything", and Isis's "Oceanic". I went into a bit of a 90's nostalgia/renaissance with Faith No More as well...
