- We Were Here - Joshua Radin
Beautiful acoustic guitar and meaningful lyrics. Good stuff. Special thanks to Sierra for introducing me to his music.
- In Our Bedroom After the War - Stars
Good good stuff. Especially “Personal” (See previous post) and “Barricade.” Also thanks to Sierra.
- EP - Annasay
Really polished sound and catchy songs for a band you’ve never heard of.
- Notes and Rhymes - The Proclaimers
The duo has released possibly their best album ever.
- I and Love and You - The Avett Brothers
Nice folk/country sound with good lyrics and quirks that keep you listening.
- He Poos Clouds - Final Fantasy
Complex violin parts and unique songs written by a total nerd. As before, good stuff.
- Live at Schubas - Zoe Keating
Experimental cello music using a sampler and a lot of talent. Incredible music.
- Music for Egon Shiele - Rachel’s
Modern classical. Extremely image-evoking and powerful to hear.
- Lantern - Clogs
Also modern classical. Maybe a bit “edgier” than Rachel’s, and very deep and intriguing.
I highly recommend them all.
