Honourable mention to Cat Power 'The Greatest' and Giant Drag 'Hearts and Unicorns' but these kick recent ass.
Islands 'Return to the Sea'
Neko Case 'Fox Confessor Brings the Flood'
The Meligrove Band 'Planets Conspire'
Also we have THE JOEL PLASKETT EMERGENCY May 5th Dicks on Dicks. I have tickets for Yads, Dan and Ed, so if you are not them you better get your ticket.
