Things people need to listen to...Episode 4

October 15, 2007

Yay for not-so-regular updates! And considering I haven't had a job in 6 weeks, I probably should have done more than one of these in that time, but too bad!

Here we are anyways, most of these are, hopefully, new to anyone reading this. Some should be known to a few of you. And I'm pretty sure at least one or two are known to all, but I'm just obsessing over their new albums, so I feel the need to mention them here.
