Todd Snider, Live at Grimey's
These seven songs are brilliantly written and endearingly performed live by Mr. Snider. This guy makes all songwriters jealous.

Mac Dre, Don't Hate the Player, Hate the Game (Vol. 2)
Sweet remixes from the Bay Area's fallen court jester. It's hosted by DJ "Dragonstyle" Rick Lee, and is packed with the "smooth and fun party lyrics" that Mac Dre was known for.

Pantera, Vulgar Display of Power
These dudes were pissed.

Insane Clown Posse, The Great Milenko
Say what you will, fuckers. This album is the Human Centipede of music, terrifying and hilarious.

Johnny Flynn and the Sussex Wit, A Larum
Ben found this record at Amoeba a few years ago and we fell in love with it. It's very elegant. It's also the most English thing ever recorded.
