I just received two CDs from Europe.

Elbow - Cost of Thousands
The Coral - Magic and Medicine

Now I cook food and listen. Wheeeee!!!!!1!

Update: The new Coral album is amazing. Much more mature but still retaining the fun attitude of the first record. Initial review: Album of the year. For real.

Again: On second thought, album of the year might be a bit much, but there are some stellar songs. I'll change my tune again tomorrow. This could end up being the longest post of all time.
