    Here's a little bit of list-shaped weekend fun to celebrate physical media on Record Store Day!

    I wasted most of my Saturday afternoon like most music geeks and decided to go all High Fidelity on my CD collection by sorting them in alphabetical order by artist.

    I recently went through the trauma of having to cut down my CD collection due to living in a tiny London flat and not having space for my 1000+ CDs. I had decided that I would only hold on to the ones that I'd classify as my all time favourites and was still left with around 200 CDs. Although I rarely play the CDs (I don't even own a CD player here), I still like the feeling of physically owning an album. It is days like today that make me love owning these pieces of art more than ever.

    • Organise all of your CDs / vinyl into alphabetical artist stacks and place your favourite album at the top of the stack
    • Artists that begin with a number should go in a single numerical stack
    • Artist names prefixed with "A" or "The" should have the prefix disregarded (for example: The Felix Culpa belong in "F", A Wilhelm Scream belong in "W")
    • Take a picture from above to show all of the favourite albums clearly
    • Take a picture from the side at an angle to show the depth of the stacks
    • Type up the list if you can be arsed (if you got this far I'm sure you won't mind doing this)
    Here is my collection!

    • Anathallo - Floating World
    • Brand New - The Devil and God Are Raging Inside Me
    • Caspian - Dust and Disquiet
    • dredg - Catch Without Arms
    • Emanuel and the Fear - Hands
    • Fear Before the March of Flames - The Always Open Mouth
    • Gatsbys American Dream - Volcano
    • The Hotelier - Home, Like Noplace Is There
    • iko - Ludo Says Hi
    • Jimmy Eat World - Bleed American
    • Kendrick Lamar - To Pimp a Butterfly
    • La Dispute - Wildlife
    • Moving Mountains - Moving Mountains
    • The New Frontiers - Mending
    • Ours - Mercy (Dancing for the Death of an Imaginary Enemy)
    • Pink Floyd - Wish You Were Here
    • The Receiving End of Sirens - The Earth Sings Mi Fa Mi
    • Sigur Rós - ( )
    • This Will Destroy You - This Will Destroy You
    • Underøath - Define the Great Line
    • Wilcox - Alcoholocaust
    • yndi halda - Enjoy Eternal Bliss
    • 65daysofstatic - We Were Exploding Anyway

    • Q, X, V and Z are totally missing from my collection! Any bands I could check out to remedy that?
    • K, U and W could also do with a bit of company. The fact that Wilcox (a 2004 garage band from Newport, Wales that only still exist in my collection because I couldn't sell it...) even managed to get in this photo is puzzling.
    • S and T were predictably huge thanks to Sigur Rós, Strung Out and Thrice!
    Happy Record Store Day!
