Hugh at Unfinished turned me on to DKD a while ago. He's got the back-porch vocal curl of early Will Oldham, but with a bit more production and forays into more straightforward indie rock.

Dolorean - You Can't Win (Yep Rock) (buy it)
Stream the whole album here. A favorite of Laura Gibson's, I've yet to give Dolorean a full hearing but might pick this up.
MP3: Dolorean - Heather Remind Me How This Ends
MP3:Dolorean - Beachcomber Blues
Nico - All Tomorrow's Parties (2-CD live) (Cherry Red) (buy it)
A double-disc import of two full Nico shows from the early 80s, it's a steal at $13. Wes Anderson fans will miss both "These Days" and "Fairest of the Seasons", but VU devotees get two versions each of "Femme Fatale" and "All Tomorrow's Parties". Also included is her epically morose cover of "The End".
Elvis Perkins - Ash Wednesday (XL Recordings) (buy it)
All Music sez: "Son of actor Anthony Perkins, who died of AIDS-related pneumonia in 1992, and photographer Berry Berenson, who was killed in the September 11 attacks, Elvis Perkins has plenty of material about which to write, and plenty, if he wanted, to make his debut, Ash Wednesday, a bleak affair. But while the album is certainly not uplifting, filling its 11 songs with their fair share of heartache and loneliness, Perkins avoids reveling in depression and instead follows the route that other singer/songwriters like Leonard Cohen, Nick Drake, and Bob Dylan have put down before him, telling detail-driven stories of people and life ("...your cameras caught me crying as I left your gates/...your maintenance men, they caught our last embrace") rather than painful confessions."
MP3: Elvis Perkins - While You Were Sleeping
Saturday Looks Good to Me - Money in the Afterlife 7" (Ernest Jennings) (buy it)
A 1000-copy limited 45 with two songs from the upcoming SLGTM full-lenth due in the fall. These tracks are not from this 7", but will give you an idea of the wonder that is SLGTM.
MP3: Saturday Looks Good to Me - Lift Me Up
MP3: Saturday Looks Good to Me - Underwater Heartbeat
Richard Swift - Dressed Up for the Letdown (Secretly Canadian) (buy it)
M Ward - To Go Home EP (Merge) (buy it)
