The Flaming Lips - The Soft Bulletin 5.1
Pavement - Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain
Radiohead - Airbag [EP]
Queens of the Stone Age - Era Vulgaris


Glad to finally get ahold of Airbag, it was really hard to find domestically for as long as I can remember but they did a massive reprinting this spring so you can now pick it up at Best Buy B&M for $8.

Picked up the new QOTSA at Best Buy too since it was the cheapest there and the Best Buy version has an exclusive download inside. The bonus track is a cover of White Wedding (yes, the Bill Idol song) that I actually really liked. Bad news is it's a 160kbps DRMed .WMA file. It was really simple to strip the DRM and convert it to MP3 though, worth the hassle IMO. Ended up tacking it onto the album as the 12th(or 13th?) track.

To strip the DRM download the song and open it with Windows Media Player. You'll then have to activate the license through WMP and once you do that you can exit. Download fairuse4wm* and that'll strip the DRM from the file. After that you can convert it to MP3 freely. I used dbPoweramp since I already had it and because it's so versatile. I also choose VBR/ABR 192kpbs and it sounded fine even after all the steps.
