I’m going to try to keep up with the folks over at Stinkweeds â€“ and hopefully a couple other local retailers â€“ on a regular basis to see what their top-selling albums each week are.
I’d like to point out I was partially responsible for Nos. 2 and 3, both of which I purchased on vinyl last week. In a sign that my consumer habits are changing, I actually had the Wolf Parade CD in hand until I realized I’d get free mp3 downloads with the vinyl and the awesome artwork in a bigger size, to boot. (For more on that topic, visit Bows + Arrows.)
Otherwise, I own only one other record from this list (Evil Urges), though I do have the Silver Jews record on my to-buy list.
