I found this very hard to do. What I ended up with is more a list of 7 albums I have been listening to a lot lately. It's impossible for me to nail down my 7 favorites, even by genre. I think it changes every second. I do like all of these a great deal.
Sparklehorse "It's A Wonderful Life" I was torn between this and "Dreamt For Light Years In The Belly Of A Mountain". I never knew him but I sure do miss him.....
Port O'Brien "Threadbare". A great young band you likely never heard of. Cool story to these guys too. Part time recording artists but most of the year one works on a fishing boat in Alaska and the other a cannery. Music has a real sea/fishing life/Alaska kinda tone...whatever that is!
oOoOO EP This one may not be for many on this forum. Drag or Witchouse style groove. I love it, Clams Casino being another cool one in this genre.
Alexi Murdoch "Towards The Sun". Both of his albums have been go to records for me since I first heard them. Brilliant.
Calexico "Feast Of Wire". Nuff said!
Tobin Sprout "Carnival Boy". The forgotten piece of the original Guided By Voices.
Magnolia Electric Co. "Fading Trails". Recorded under this name and also Songs: Ohia and some under Jason Molina.
That was rough but there you have it! Hope someone finds one they enjoy in there. I'm following this thread in search of some learns from you guys.
Damn. I knew this would happen! I wish we could edit our posts....
I would rather replace the Magnolia Elct Co with this....
Jonathan Mieburg "Buteo Buteo". I have probably bee listening to his work the most lately. The stuff he did under his name and also the Shearwater records. Very unique but I'd call it chamber pop with some similarities to Antony or Talk Talk.
A note to Richard_stacy:

I have edited plenty of posts of mine. I am a bad, bad typist, and my spelling look horrible, so i often jump back in and fix the errors...
Also, being logged in to the main log in, you do not have to enter your info for each post, it is already set, just hit "submit as is". Cool.
I'm fortunate? to have what many say is the original version of this album, the RCA Red Seal.
RCA Red Seal LSC-2341, Boston Symphony Orchestra, Charles Munch Cond.
Classic Records Re-Issue, 45rpm Series, one-sided Pressing, 4 album set.
JVC XRCD2 Re-Master, JMCXR-0002.
Deutsche Grammophon, 419 617-2, Berlin Philharmonic, James Levine Cond.
Seraphim Classics, CDR 7243 5 73430 22, National Orchestra of France.
The RCA is in MINT condition, and sounds the best considering it's age. The Classic Records did a great job when they re-mastered this LP, Great sound.
The JVC is a great CD. The other 2 CD's I do not listen to since I got the JVC.
I have never had the opportunity to hear it preformed live. If my performing arts center ever does it I will be sure to go.
