I haven't bought the Idlewild album yet. I hate being poor.

I've only bought three new albums this year. But I love them!

Bright Eyes - I'm Wide Awake, It's Morning
Bright Eyes - Digital Ash In A Digital Urn
Brendan Benson - The Alternative To Love

I'd say British Sea Power - Open Season, but that came in early April.

So I have to say...
01. Doves - Some Cities
02. Louis XIV - The Best Little Secrets Are Kept
03. New Order - Waiting For The Sirens' Call

I don't know if the Louis XIV is actually out though...

The Spoon album is amazing, but technically it's not supposed to be out yet so I don't know if it can be counted as a 1st quarter release.

I also have the new Sleater-Kinney and I think it's their best work yet. Best thing this year for me so far.

In addition to those two:

Beck--Guero
Keren Ann--Nolita

If you haven't heard Keren Ann she's fucking amazing. Israeli born, raised in Paris, multi-instrumentalist. Her first two albums were in French, last one was all in English and this one's about 60% English. Sounds a bit like Mazzy Star combined with Norah Jones but she's better than both of them. Great voice, great songwriter. Go to Amazon.com and read the reviews, or check her website www.kerenann.com

The Beekeeper by Tori Amos is my favorite of this year so far.

I've also enjoyed Push the Button by The Chemical Brothers. And I'm really looking forward to getting the new Stereophonics. I suspect it will be pretty cool.

gah. i've been meaning to respond to this thread, but i can't stop listening to arcade fire, interpol and stars - all from 2004.

i guess honourable mentions for this year would include ones that have already been mentioned:

doves - some cities
hot hot heat - elevator
the decemberists - picaresque
m ward - transistor radio

i just got final fantasy, i'll have to give that a thorough listening. and while i like the new tori, i'm not sure i like it enough to say it's one of my favourites.

i just wish broken social scene would freakin' hurry up and release 'windsurfing nation' already!

Pretty hard to describe. They're indie rock by record label, but they're classic rock and roll to me (I don't mean classic rock in the genre sense). Beatles influences, some detect some Elvis Costello.

The best thing to do is go to Amazon.com and read the reviews people put up, sometimes there's an editor's review as well. Plus there's usually song clips you can listen to. Or you can go to a website like www.pitchforkmedia.com that has a lot of record reviews. The people at Pitchfork are indie rock snobs but they LOVE Spoon.

Nolita was late 2004...

but yes Keren Ann is a wonderful singer.

Good call on the New Order and the Chems.
