Got a pretty good batch of albums today: Hospice by The Antlers Black Gives Way To Blue by Alice In Chains The Lonesome Crowded West by Modest Mouse 20th Century Masters—The Millennium Collection by The Allman Brothers Band Smokey Rolls Down Thunder Canyon by Devendra Banhart
Never even heard of the last one, but it was four bucks so I got it anyway. According to Wikipedia it's "indie folk, psych folk, naturalismo, folk rock," which all sounds pretty cool. Saving it for last listen. :D
I wanted to get ( ) by Sigur Rós as well, but they didn't have it. There was another one that I never heard of there called Mumps, Etc. by Why?, but I didn't get it, didn't have enough cash.
I went to Best Buy with mom on the way home from dinner 'cause she needed something. I went to lurk in the music section as usual, not really intending to buy anything but looking at music anyway. I looked in the bin with CDs at super-low prices to see if I would be happily surprised to find something. I was. I got Black Sabbath's Vol. 4 for four bucks.
Okay, I need to quit the CD buying for a while.

Black Gives Way To Blue by Alice In Chains
THAT ALBUM. so good
Actually forked over some cash for this gem and this awesomeness. Never thought I'd like something of hip-hop and industrial black metal or whatever the hell it's called. Thanks Bandcamp.
I got The Essential Miles Davis and Godspeed You! Black Emperor's 'Allelujah! Don't Bend! Ascend! today.
Bunch of fairly random techno singles. Mostly dub techno.
I got Grizzly Bear's Yellow House and Gnarls Barkley's St. Elsewhere yesterday and forgot to mention them here.
The former is some incredibly chill psychedelic rock (not my favorite Grizzly Bear album, but hey, it's Grizzly Bear), the latter is basically all you need to revisit the last decade in music.
Today, I went to the record store because I had seen Isis's last album, Wavering Radiant there and I decided that I wanted it. As I picked that one out of its spot, I saw a Judas Priest double-album package thing containing British Steel and Screaming for Vengeance at a good price, so I couldn't pass that up.
These shall be my last albums I purchase for a while, I swear it! I will express some semblance of self-control! Wavering Radiant is very good, very emotional post-metal that sounds kinda like what I imagine Explosions in the Sky would sound like if they went metal, and the two Judas Priest albums... well, I guess you could say it's like Black Sabbath on even more cocaine.
I bought Garage Inc.-Metallica yesterday, its decent.
