3. "Boxer" The National
4. "The Stage Names" Okkervil River
5. "The Shepherd's Dog" Iron and Wine
6. "Neon Bible" Arcade Fire
7. "Pride" Phosphorescent
8. "Our Love to Admire" Interpol
9. "Our Ill Wills" Shout Out Louds
10. "Wincing the Night Away" The Shins

Songs (js)
1. "Drums of Glass" Monomen
2. "Fans" Kings of Leon
3. "Green Gloves" The National

Good list. I went and re-listened to that Shins album, and liked it better the second time around.
For anyone interested, the new Saul Williams record is pretty good. I got it last night after hearing about it from Sound Opinions podcast.

Worth supporting, I think. $5 isn't too much to ask for spoken word over industrial beats.
