This is what's been rocking my speakers this year:

Old friends:
Tom Waits (especially Rain Dogs and Alice)
White Stripes (especially White Blood Cells, Elephant, and their newest, Icky Thump, ROCKS)
Nick Drake (especially Pink Moon)
Modest Mouse (sorry, Matt)

Old standbys:
Shut Up, I Am Dreaming by Sunset Rubdown
You Forgot it In People by Broken Social Scene
Return To The Sea by The Islands

New friends that are becoming old friends (and released new material this year):
Do Make Say Think
Andrew Bird
The Arcade Fire

Growers (these are the ones that grow on you, the more you listen to it)
Jens Lekman
Roots and Crowns by Califone

Not For Everyone, but Growers All The Same:
Person Pitch by Panda Bear - gave it another listen when my favourite music website named them best of 2007; growing on me.
Fur and Gold by Bat For Lashes
Ys by Joanna Newsom
From Here We Go To Sublime The Fields
