This has long been one of my favorite posts to write every week. I’m a former record store employee so I have a strange nostalgia for the excitement that Tuesday used to bring. I suppose it’s not so exciting anymore in this day of online leaks and advance streaming, but I still tend to hold out and listen to the ones I really want to hear for the first time via the disc and not the computer. Once I found myself skipping this post with out much of an urge to get online and fix that mistake immediately, I realized that maybe we were heading down the path to blogclosure. So, with a fairly heavy keyboard heart, I give you one more round of New Music Tuesday.
Hit the jump and we’ll talk about the day one more time… (more…)

We’re about a quarter some stretch of the way through 2009. And because I am a blogger and enjoy both creating arbitrary segments of time for my own writing purposes and the compilation of shamelessly subjective lists, I have (yet another) one of the latter for one of the former.
