This serious is a multi-faceted and complex question on par with "how do we fix America's economic situation" but I will try.
1. "Maybe We Are the Ones Making God Sad and Lonely" Dreamend. When I found out Dreamend was opening for AC on their LLO tour I purchased this album (I hate going to shows if I don't know the band's work unless it's a festival of course). From the ghost story, the lyrics, artwork, feel, everything about this album vibed with my hopeful, meloncholy soul like so few things do. And it introduced me to Graveface Records, that is a huge plus for this album.
1. "Perhaps We Should've Smoked the Salmon First" Toman. Post-rock is my fave genre but so many bands in that scene thinks instrumental means post-rock, it doesn't. Toman has found the spirit of this genre on this release and even though I have it on CD, it doesn't matter. Some music is so perfect it doesn't need anything else to make your soul smile (that said I would LOVE a vinyl copy still ;D). Just an undescribable beauty of an album.
1. "Low Level Owl" Appleseed Cast. One of my top 5 favorite artists, performing one of my top 5 albums of all time on beautiful speckled vinyl, nuf said.
1. "Dimples" The Nighty Nite. Their sound is so fresh and unlike anything I've heard in years, I've played this album so much I'm sure the vinyl will be skipping like a month. I love the creepy artwork everytime I show it to someone it freaks them out, score!!! Seriously the best EP in history!

After receiving my copy of Lonely Twin, I have to say that is my new favorite overall release (sorry Periphery!)
The cover art just emits this emotional radiation on it's own, but when listening to the album along with the art, and the poster as well, it just becomes this tale of sorrow that transcends any album I've heard (the only possible exception being anything by Swans)
