sample sounded great, picked it up. more post-punk albums, please
Green On Red - Gas Food Lodging
Genre: Roots Rock/Alt-Country
These dudes totally laid the foundation for folks like Wilco and Son Volt, and in my opinion released far superior music in the process.
The band came from the paisley underground scene, and it shows from time to time, but otherwise this more or less sounds like The Replacements jamming on some Neil Young and Steve Earle in a bar.
Recommended If You Like: Wilco, Son Volt, The Replacements, Neil Young, Steve Earle, and Uncle Tupelo.
Sample the album (plus the EP that was tacked on to the reissue of this LP) on myspace.
The APB stuff was pretty awesome by the way for people who are interested in APB here are some live videos that are pretty cool.
Also, I'll definitely check into the Green on Red album.
I wish to be a magician of words!
Adrian Borland - Alexandria
Genre: Alternative/Pop Rock
The frontman for top-shelf post-punkers The Sound continued releasing really great music after they disbanded and very few paid attention for some reason.
This is his debut and basically should have been a hit record on par with the most popular work from The Cure, U2, or The Church. The album's great for a good drunk cry too and every song is pure gold.
Recommended If You Like: The Sound, The Cure, U2, The Church, Modern English, and The Chameleons.
Light The Sky
Just listened to part of the first track, definitely picking this up right now.

Murdered by Afterstasis, who said "I Killed this *****, she had it coming. I know how to ****ing spell bananas." -Quinarvy
Don Ellis Orchestra - Electric Bath
Genre: Big Band/Jazz Fusion
I'm not usually a fan of the big band or swing styles of jazz, but this is on a whole other level, in addition to being one of the earliest so-called "third stream" jazz releases and my personal favorite.
Recommended If You Like: Miles Davis, Buddy Rich, Gil Evans, Stan Kenton, Don Cherry, and Maynard Ferguson.
