I bought three albums this week.
First, I picked up Here Comes Science by They Might Be Giants. This is a band I've been into since I was in Jr. High, and now I can share the music with my kid. The whole album is great, and it comes with a dvd of really fun music videos for every song. My favorite right now is probably "Electric Car", but Amanda likes "Bloodmobile."
Second, I picked up Wilco by Wilco. They are probably my favorite band.
Finally, I bought a single off of iTunes...something I almost never do. I think I've only done so once or twice before, but this 50% of the proceeds are going to autism research, and it is my favorite Christmas song in years.
