Die! Die! Die!
Radio Dept - Pet Grief
Copy - Mobius Beard
are my two favourites.
I also like the Nathan Fake and Howling Bells albums.
I've bought loads more than five but generally they're old.
this isn't really fair since half of these aren't out yet, but thanks to those that gave me/sent me the promo
midlake- vans of the trial occupanther
junior boys- so this is goodbye
grizzly bear- yellow house
hot chip- the warning
beirut- gulag orkestrar
of course these could all easily change
Beirut - Gulag Orkestrar
Burial - S/T
Final Fantasy - He Poos Clouds
The Knife - Silent Shout
John Maus - Songs
Liars - Drums Not Dead
Casiotone For the Painfully Alone - Etiquetter
Charalambides - A Vintage Burden
Sunset Rubdown - Shut Up I'm Dreaming
That's a few more than five, and there's still ESG, Grizzly Bear, Will Oldham and the inevitable Mount Eerie to come.

The Thursday album is probably the best so far.
Lots more I want to get though. I have the new Xiu Xiu but haven't really listened to it properly yet. Been meaning to get the new Built To Spill for ages, as well as the Beirut album, the Band of Horses one, the new AFI...
what type of music is he/she/them?
haven't heard his solo stuff though
danielson and casiotone for the painfully alone.
all american apart from muse!
lots of people mentioning them.
Also the new Mountain Goats album in August, which is ineveitably going to be amazing.
is Spencer Krug's (of Frog Eyes and Wolf Parade fame) band. The new album is joyous keyboard driven indie-pop.
I may have to check that out, cheers.
And Sika Redem
The Radio Dept.
Plus Islands and volcano! and Wizardzz and hot chip and some others... there's been a lot of stuff i've loved this year.
erm, that would be in my top 5
i keep thinking of more now.
i hate lists.
I have the EP before it and it is GOOD.
Anyway, five albums. These are good. The best so far? Maybe not...
Midlake 'Trials of...'
Todd 'Comes To Your House'
Flaming Lips 'At War With...'
Cortny Tidwell 'Don't Let Stars...'
Oh GOSH though there are loads of great records out already, LOADS. Belle and Sebastian, An Albatross, Russian Circles, Liars, Islands...
the gregor samsa album.
It's much better than the EP.
Amazing band live too !
Can't think of anything else. Srsly.

and er, either the jesu EP, Sufjan record, BTBAM covers album, Sika Redem or Fickle Public in 5th place. But i also need to give the new Xiu Xiu, pAperchAse and Cursive more listens so that list was utterly pointless
