3. Blood Red Shoes - I Wish I Was Someone Better (V2)
4. VietNam - VietNam (Kemado)
5. Two Friends - Two Friends (Motown)
6. Nick Cave & Warren Ellis - Music From The Motion Picture The Assassination Of Jesse James By The Coward Robert Ford (Mute)
7. Sightings - Through The Panama (Load)
9. Vampire Weekend - Mansard Roof (Abeano)
10. Abdel Hadi Halo & The El Gusto Orchestra Of Algiers - S/T (Honest Jon's)
11. Neil Young - Chrome Dreams II (Reprise)
12. Vernon Elliott - Ivor The Engine & Pogle's Wood (Trunk)
13. John Fahey - Fare Forward Voyager (Soldier's Choice) (Vanguard)
