We gave the Times our top twenty, but they only had space for ten, and since publication, we've had a few requests for "The Christmas List." So without further ado ... for your downloading or buying pleasure ... just in time for the holiday parties ... enjoy a merry little Easy Street Christmas!

Death Cab For Cutie - Something About Airplanes [Vinyl] Death Cab For Cutie - Something About Airplanes [Vinyl]
New Vinyl: $19.99
The first instrument you notice upon listening to Something About Airplanes is the cello on "Bend to Squares." It fades out, soon enough replaced by the familiar electric guitar, but it sets this album's offbeat mood. Experimentation and pop hooks strike a perfect balance on this debut from the Bellingham, Washington-based Death Cab for Cutie.
Death Cab For Cutie - We Have the Facts and We're Voting Yes [Vinyl] Death Cab For Cutie - We Have the Facts and We're Voting Yes [Vinyl]
New Vinyl: $19.99
On their debut album, 1999's Something About Airplanes, Death Cab for Cutie proved there's a reason why Northwest music critics continue to sing their praises. The foursome combined the emo sounds of Modest Mouse and 764-Hero with an inventive, and often sly, sentimentality. It worked wonders, but still sounded a little too lo-fi. Luckily, on We Have the Facts and We're Voting Yes the group has figured out all the production nuances that flawed that auspicious debut.
Death Cab For Cutie - The Photo Album [Vinyl] Death Cab For Cutie - The Photo Album [Vinyl]
New Vinyl: $19.99
Death Cab for Cutie turn difficult personal issues into literary rock songs while straddling the narrow line between blissful pop and driving indie rock. The Northwest act's songs soar high like Built to Spill's or Beulah's, and almost every track on The Photo Album is as musically bouncy and upbeat as the best of those bands.

The Trip [Movie] - The Trip To Italy The Trip [Movie] - The Trip To Italy
New Blu-Ray: $29.98
Michael Winterbottom's largely improvised film The Trip took comedians Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon or semifictionalized versions thereof on a restaurant tour around northern England. In this witty and incisive follow-up, Winterbottom reunites the pair for a new culinary road trip, retracing the steps of the Romantic poets grand tour of Italy and indulging in some sparkling banter and impersonation-offs. Once again Coogan and Brydon enjoy mouthwatering meals in gorgeous settings from Liguria to Capri while riffing on subjects as varied as Batman's vocal register, the artistic merits of Jagged Little Pill, and, of course, the virtue of sequels. Equally hilarious and insightful, THE TRIP TO ITALY effortlessly melds the crackling chemistry between Coogan and Brydon to create a brilliantly comic rumination on the nuances of friendship and the juggling of family and career.
