Another month where I only bought two albums!! Kudos to me on not spending money but dang I’m sure there’s lots of awesome stuff out there I missed this year!!
Absolutely Love & Adore:
Pete Yorn “Back & Fourth” – Wow, I am just completely gaga for this album. Completely. Definitely my most-listened tunes for the second half of the year. It’s the usual melancholy swell of emotion from Yorn, soft and gentle and sad and rambling on. Which just makes it even odder that his concerts are so “all at the same volume level, arena anthem rock” sounding. Faves include “Dont’ Wanna Cry” and “Social Development Dance” but honestly I love this entire album front to back.
Favorite Singles (not on any of the above albums):
- “Swim Until You Can’t See Land” Frightened Rabbit – really the only thing I regret about canceling my trip to Monolith is not getting to see these guys.
- “H.O.T.T. (Half of the Time)” Wheat
Other Albums I Liked:
- Dent May & His Magnificent Ukelele “The Good Feeling Music of Dent May and His Magnificent Ukelele” – Totally goofy. Kinda reminds me of Matt Costa. Unusual instrumentation, styles all over the map.
