Non 2006 Music

Heres my big ones:
Ted Leo / Pharmacists
I simply have not been able to get enough of these artists this year. Ted Leo and Ryan Adams are the really big ones, in that I had never heard a lick of their music until this year. I've also yet to hear anything that would deter me from thinking they're both absolutely fucking brilliant. In Gillian's case, I'd heard of her for a while and had even causally listened to her and enjoyed before. However, 2006 marked the first time I gave any of her records a fair and focused listen, and she too is one of my absolute favorites. And as for the Strokes, I had heard them before but they never really did anything for me until this spring. Anyhow, they are not brilliant but they do kick ass.

two recent albums that i had simply never given a chance before finding them in used bins earlier this year: supergrass - in it for the money & the jayhawks - hollywood town hall. everyone always talked about that one being supergrass' apex and i love i should coco, so i always thought people were crazy, but, yeah, it's really good. i still don't prefer it over i should coco, but i dig it a lot. and that jayhawks album is also really good, surprised i hadn't heard it in its entirety before purchasing it.
and then there're a lot of classics that i finally got around to this year. i'm still listening to some like astral weeks and loaded for what, i guess, is why they're considered such great albums, but i do like both. and then there're others that totally blew me away for various reasons, mostly being that i'd just really never heard anyone else talk them up. examples: paul kelly - stealing in the name of the lord, the impressions - this is my country, willie colon - cosa nuestra. and then there're the classics that everyone loves and i was like, "why haven't i owned this before?" examples: x - wild gift, psychedelic furs - talk talk talk, the replacements - let it be, and lô borges. it's been a good year.
