I think the only two I bought were Blunderbuss by Jack White and Carry Me Back by OCMS. Not a big fan of new music.

I bought Blunderbuss and Babel, and I have to say they are two of my favorites of the year, and saw Old Crow and Jack White live this year, those were two absolutely amazing shows. I'll be seeing Mumford in February two days in a row, I've never seen them live and I can. not. wait.
