Prediction: The eight more hipster-oriented units whose current releases are among those happily hyped below may well have a hard time supporting such proudly post-graduate artfuck endeavors through four long years of the ownership society. The three more suburban-oriented and hence Clear Channelready bands (whose records are almost as interesting, though you'd never know it unless you live on Staten Island or in Jersey) may well survive longer, but only if they buy big houses, attend church every Sunday, and invest heavily in the evangelical stock market. None of which is to suggest that any of them should consider risking their day jobs. Though I sure wish they all could.
