Mine was Steve Wynn's ...tick, tick, tick.


(Twilight Singers, NIN, QOTSA, the Stones, Ryan Adams, Mission of Burma, The Church, Nick Cave, Chris Whitley, Billy Joe Shaver, Frank Black, and :oops: Buckcherry all got a lot of play, also, amongst others.)

I think I've played We All Belong by Dr. Dog more times than any other record this year, and I only got it a month or so ago. :oops:

Kelley Stolz - Below the Branches
Booka Shade - Movements
Beck - The Information

these are all in constant rotation, along with 2005's best, Mazarin's We're Already There.

I still haven't heard this yet... Does Steven Drozd contribute DRUMS to the record, or just keys and stuff?

Levon Helm's "Dirt Farmer"...

Oh, and +1 for Sparklehorse's "Dreamt for Light Years In the Belly of a Mountain"...

I couldn't get enough of Steve Earle's "Live at Montreux 2005" (released 7/2006) - dude's got something to say and a wonderful way of saying it!

That's easy.
Destroyer's Rubies by Destroyer. It sounds like heaven and the songs and words are incredible as well.
