Capitol Years by The Kingston Trio. I've only the vaguest idea of what this box set sounds like but Erg seamed pretty passionate about it so why not. [Amazon]

Death From Above 1979 Sweater. The band? Again, not really my thing. I'd definitely rock this sweater, though. [Killthe8]

Sonos Play 5. The Sonos Play 5 is a wireless speaker that connects to your home internet network and can play any song off of your hard drive, or from any of the streaming services. Plus, you can control it remotely with a phone app. Expensive at about $400, but sounds cool. [Amazon]

Purple Snow by Various Artists. A number of you recommended anything by this Numero Group label, and with this collection you can see why. Purple Snow documents some of the pre- and nascent-Prince-era Minneapolis Sound. In addition, physical copies come with a 144-page book going into the backstory of the album's contributors. [Numero Group]

Gift a one year Daytrotter membership for $32. Daytrotter is the internet service that makes available a huge number of live recordings from a huge number of artists. Sort of like a live, indie-focused Spotify. Membership also allows you to download any track on mp3. [Daytrotter]
