Top 5 Albums of Right-Now-At-This-Very-Moment

Wilco, Sky Blue Sky
Jeff Tweedy and company set out to make a beautiful record, and they've done just that.
Hi-lites: "Either Way", "What Light"

Blonde Redhead, 23
This one's been spinning in mC offices for awhile now, but we just can't get enough. Luscious tunes that are simultaneously crisp and sonic, analgesic and alarming.
Hi-lites: "Spring And By Summer Fall", "Heroine"

The New Pornographers, Challengers Somehow recalling the bittersweet symphonies of Pet Sounds, the latest release from Neko and the boys slows the anthems down a bit for a more mature sound that still keeps the fists pumping.
Hi-Lites: "My Rights Versus Yours", "Unguided"

The National, Boxer
The songwriting brilliance and developed melodies from these Brooklynites manifest themselves on their newest release. The National sit right next to The Arcade Fire, making believers out of us all that Music is a religion.
Hi-Lites: "Apartment Story", "Guest Room"

Spoon, Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga
The world would be a better place if everyone from Texas were as cool as these guys. The most recent release from Spoon is some of the best chill-out rock ever made.
Hi-Lites: "The Ghost of You Lingers", "Don't Make Me a Target"
