Years Best New (for me) Music
So the year has been sweet of course. I have not really been into much new music though. The only new album I've really consistently been listening to is by a French band, go figure. I don't really know what else to say--except to my fellow blog-mates I spent another 50$US for ezarchive space so you better start using that $hit--so I'll just get to the songs.
Bruce Springsteen - Thunder Road
Oh how I have done you wrong Bruce. I bought Born to Run about 6 years ago, listened to it once or twice and forgot about it. Maybe I was too young, maybe I'm still too young.
Broken Social Scene - Looks Just Like The Sun
Another group I slept on. Maybe I should have ignored the hype but I've really grown to love this album. I haven't even had the courage to move on to any of their other EPs or LPs, I'm still too infatuated with this one.
Ando Drom (Hun) - Sza Tele Zsav
Of course there is the obligatory gypsy song but it's so much more, I just don't have the words to do it justice, uhn-cha uhn-cha uhn-cha uhn-cha, or maybe La Luna La Luna La Luna La Luna...
M83 - Kim & Jesse
Yet another artist I initially didn't like, I think I'm starting to notice a pattern. The aforementioned French band, go figure. Reaches the utterly beautiful heights of MBV (while being totally derivative) but with ego taking the place of melancholy.
