1 Pharaoh Sanders - Black Unity (Impulse)
2 White Magic - Dark Stars (Drag City)
3 Tenniscoats - Totemo Aimasho (Room40)
4 Youssou N'Dour - Rokku Mi Rokka (Give And Take) (Nonesuch)
5 A Mountain Of One - Collected Works (10 Worlds)
6 Radiohead - In Rainbows (Waste Products Inc)
7 Beirut - The Flying Club Cup (4AD)
8 Black Mountain - In The Future (Jagjaguwar)

I think it might be working this time. . .
