Wincing the Night Away

January 23 PSA: the third Shins album was released today.

Happily, the rest of my top five list of bands also have albums coming out this year - Ted Leo + The Pharmacists (March 20), Modest Mouse (March Something), Spoon (Spring TBA), and New Pornographers (Fall TBA). Toss in new albums by Clap Your Hands Say Yeah (January 30), Bloc Party (February 6), Arcade Fire (March 6), Islands (Summer TBA), Interpol (Fall TBA), and Wolf Parade (Fall TBA), and my Best of 2007 is going to be exceptionally hard to make.

Best of 2006 CDs are being cut tonight or tomorrow. Last chance to let me know if you want a copy.

Also? New albums by Bright Eyes, Magnetic Fields, and Kanye West.

Shut up. I still like Kanye.

And don't forget about the new Britney Spears album coming out in the fall! Woot!

I hear Timbaland, Pharrell Williams, T-Pain, Sean Garrett, and about 157 other big-name producers are all working on it simultaneously - so it *must* be *awesome*!!!!!!! KEWL!!!!111!!!

The sad thing is I'm not even kidding. Check out "Britney Spears' fifth studio album" on Wikipedia...

Please, please, please let Britney decide to do a duet with Paris Hilton.

And then Paris has to hook up with K-Fed.

And then Britney has to do a revenge song.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

ooh oooh oooh can I have a 2006 CD? I've been using to send albums to TOWWAS. I zip 'em up and upload 'em. It's pretty sweet and cuts out that pesky CD-burning/post-office step!
