Anything by Tammany Hall NYC. They're not well know, but they are amazing. I picked up on them by watching Scrubs. Lots of great music on that show.

Who buys CDs anymore when you can download the album and throw it on your iPod or a CDR in less than an hour?

I haven't bought a CD in I think 5 years......except for bands where I collect their material like Rush, IQ, Genesis, Pink Floyd and Dream Theater.

I generally buy most of my stuff on iTunes. Occasionally I will buy a CD if I'm at Best Buy and see something the floats my boat. Takes five minutes to rip it into iTunes and throw it on the iPod.

Next step is buying movies on iTunes. I've bought TV shows and output them to the TV via the dock with S-video. They're DVD quality. Rumors are that iTunes may begin doing HD movies in the future with the ability to stream them from your computer to your TV. Apparently Apple is considering having a subscription service available for this. Imagine paying $15-20 a month to watch as many HD movies as you want with Dolby Digital, etc.

Modest Mouse, The Shins, Wilco, & The White Stripes all get the passing grade from me this year so far.
