Championship Vinyl: Week of 5/15/11 - 5/21/11

Ever since I got this new job I've been buying a ton of cd's via Amazon or Zia Records (or from artist's sites). I get paid every week and after I get my check I head to Zia and throughout the week I just order them off Amazon. I thought I'd start sharing my purchases with this segment. As most of you know, the title is a reference to the High Fidelity film. I thought it was appropriate because I want this segment to embody the same pretentiousness that the record store embodied in High Fidelity. I'll try to post 1 music video from each album I post along with a link to Amazon (or the artists' site) to purchase the album.
