Five-dollar albums from Smith Westerns, Decemberists, Scissor Sisters and tons of other acts coming to town next year

In the past month, I have bought about ten mp3 albums and haven’t paid a cent over $5 for a single one of them. That’s because I follow Amazon Mp3 on Twitter, which alerts me every time the site is offering a discount on some album. 
Right now, they’re offering 1,000 albums for $5, and a lot of them are really great albums, some from bands on soon to be en route to the area: the Smith Westerns debut, the latest Scissor Sisters, Decemberists’ Hazards of Love. Big ol’ list after the jump.
