What the cool kids bought this year

Play it: Insound's Top 100 sellers 2005

Insound, THE indie rock online music store, lists their top 100 sellers of the year. Makes for a good listen as well as a good source for an idea of what to get your favorite music geek this Christmas. Top of the list is the self-released, self-titled debut from Clap Your Hands Say Yeah.

Outside of that, Bloc Party has 3, while Wolf Parade, Fiery Furnaces, Dungen, and a few others have two albums in there. Classics like Neutral Milk Hotel's In an Aeroplane over the Sea, Ride's Nowhere and If You're Feeling Sinister from Belle & Sebastian also made the list this year. Must-owns will continue to sell.

P.S. - Still fighting off sickness, so forgive the less vigorous posting lately. On the mend, but still foggy-headed.
