The only physical music purchases I've made this year were at shows.
One was the Gee Whiz 7" from Buck, I bought the album online, but it's probably the closest to my Favorite album to come out this year.

Thurston Moore's Demolished Thoughts.

I bought Fallen House on vinyl again on a whim just to have a copy unopened. Maybe frame it if I get it signed.

I think I'm done with CDs. There will be rare exceptions but I just hate them. Always have.

The new Das Racsit cd and She & Him Christmas album on vinyl were the only new releases I purchased from a store this year, both from Sound Garden in Baltimore.

I also bought a new, sealed copy of the Charlie Brown Christmas soundtrack on vinyl, but that's obviously not a new record.

I bought Tame Impala - Innerspeaker and Shlohmo - Bad Vibes at Fingerprints in Long Beach and they were two of my top favorites of this year that I bought at a store. Its getting harder to find stuff I like at physical stores. Even the "indie"stores dont quite have the selection for what i'm looking for. I did buy a shitload of albums off bandcamp that I really liked and also bought every release that came off of leaving records (mostly cassettes).

None this year and I can't remember the last time I found an album that I wanted in a physical store but it was probably some years ago. I do try though. If I know the album has that type of distribution, I try to get it from the physical store but what usually happens is those artists who do try to get the music distributed in the physical stores like Best Buy/FYE, well it would be listed on the website but not be in the store. Plus the FYE near me closed down a couple years ago. The only other physical stores I know to get music from are Best Buy, Walmart and Target. I tried to buy Cunninlynguists - Oneirology at Best Buy because it's on Best Buy's website but when I went to the store they didn't have it. There hasn't been any other albums that I liked this year that has that level of distribution although I am thinking of getting Common's new album(ha oneirology is about dreams and Common's album has a dream theme). This has been a horrible year for music and I'm just realizing it because I was so busy with other stuff all year. There's only been like 4 albums I liked this year. Most of what I've been listening to are albums from last year and some from years earlier and the mix of loose tracks/singles I liked I usually put together each year.

I can't remember the last year I bought any music in a store, maybe 09? Probably longer than that...

I still but actual CD's for the most part, but I always buy online. Once all the artists I were interested in started selling online, it was just easier that way...if there was a store close that I could buy the music I like in physical copy than I'd probably still do that, but that hasn't been the case for like 10 years new

Fucked Up's "David Comes to Life" is unquestionably my favorite album of 2011. Marco & I played that album ad nauseum on tour this summer, and we've both listened to it pretty much constantly ever since. In fact, I think it's recently just made it to the top of my Favorite Albums of All-Time list, dethroning "Kid A."

Also, Democracy Now! needs to do a piece on "Film the Police." Or, at the very least, play it between segments on the show. Something.

This year I discovered a bunch of older music I really like. Anything I bought was used cd/vinyl or digital from Bandcamp.

The future is the past.

Is this meant to shame people that only buy digital and enjoy lists? Because I feel unduly ashamed. What is the aversion to lists all about? Does this go back to the "look what I listen to!" idea? Is this about Swiss-like neutrality?

For the record, the last new CD I remember buying was Human the Death Dance. One of the reasons for this is that I like to listen to full records before I buy them. I don't feel comfortable spending $15 on something that I only like half of. I also don't like lugging around physical copies of things and cluttering up my place with stacks of plastic. The downside is that I lost some music when my iPod and laptop crapped out and now I'm plum out of luck. Alas.

Also, I supported SFR by going to the Li(fe) / FHSC tour and buying a lovely shirt.

I didn't mean to set off any guilt trip wires. This, in a not so sneaky way, is a field study of sorts. If you read my explanation as to why I'm curious about what albums people bought in physical stores, you'll have a better understanding of the difficult decision a lot of musicians and labels will have to make within the next two years.
