End of eMusic Month and updates in general; WILCO ON SNL

Tons of great stuff out there on eMusic (most on iTunes too) this month. If you haven't downloaded all of your credits, here are some ideas.

Los Campesinos - Hold On Now, Youngster (ADVANCE - ALBUM AVAILABLE!!)
Bon Iver - For Emma, Forever Ago (a classic)
Mountain Goats - Heretic Pride (strange voice but awesome album)
Beach House - Devotion (the latest P4k buzz band, haven't really checked it out)
Cat Power - Jukebox (finally got it, I really like it)
Atlas Sound - Let the Blind Lead... (P4k buzz band, samples did not impress me)
Andy Palacio - Watina (Blythe endorsed afro-pop)
Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova - The Swell Season (see what the Once buzz is all about; won Oscar for Best Original Song)
Jason Collett - Here's to Being Here (loved Idols in Exile, have not checked this out)
British Sea Power - Do You Like Rock Music? (some buzz around this album, have not really checked it out).

Also, Don't Forget WILCO is playing on Saturday Night Live this weekend. Set your Tivo's.

I would add to that list the following, all of which I got from eMusic (and likely will be reporting on soon):

The Raveonettes - Lust Lust Lust (on par with their first album--heavy distortion if you can handle it)
Headlights - Some Racing, Some Stopping (dreamy indie pop)
Tulsa - I Was Submerged (favorite on KEXP - pick up "Shaker" if you have a credit left)

Colour Revolt released their album on eMusic last week.
