Dig deep but don't dig too deep

Hey hey it's been a good year for music so far. Grandaddy, Flaming Lips, Drive-by Truckers, Belle and Sebastian and Destroyer have all already come through with solid efforts, Graham Coxon released a new album featuring some of his best work since Blur, and if the first 2006 singles to trickle down the wire are any indication, it'll be a great year for singles as well. I've also been able to make it through a lot more full albums this year (I'm calling it the double shot effect). It's never too early to start digging through all these wonderful, fresh mp3s and enjoying the select few that help get me through the day to day griiind.
