My favorite music releases this year (so far)

Adele- 21
–soulful, heartfelt, strong

Death Cab for Cutie- Codes and Keys
–adore this melodic indie band

Nick Jaina- The Beanstalks that have Brought Us Here Have Gone
–impressive range of moods, vocals and compositions. talented women with distinctive voices

The Decemberists- The King is Dead

PJ Harvey- Let England Shake
–songs about England’s history told in a manner only PJ Harvey can do. such an amazing album.

Cake- Showroom of Compassion
–quirky, infectious, great to work-out to

If By Yes- Salt on Sea Glass

The Strokes- Angles

Elbow- Build a Rocket Boys
–so understated that its simplicity is its charm

Rachel Platten- Be Here
–underlying cerebral, often serious-minded messages amidst catchy chords and dulcet vocals.

The Coathangers- Larcey & Old Lace
–The Coathangers growl, grind and sneer through its power rock songs.

The Living Sisters- Love to Live
–This lush aural tapestry with sweet voices harmonizing will make you put the album on repeat.

Juliana Hatfield- There’s Always Another Girl
–I’ve always liked Hatfield’s moody songs as I can easily relate to the topics Hatfield frequently sings about.

MUSIC REVIEW: She and Him, Vol. 2

She and Him: Vol. 2 is such a throwback to the doo-wop 50s and 60s—it reminds me of the Brill Building days and the film Grace of My Heart.

Zooey Deschanel, indie film darling/ singer and newlywed to Death Cab for Cutie’s Ben Gibbard, sings lusciously and boldly on this one. The entire volume is sunny, bubbly and filled with sunshine and happiness. It doesn’t matter what Zooey sings. M. Ward contributes funky riffs and charged percussion to exude even more pop and pizazz.

Vol. 1 is introspective and soft, while Vol. 2 is its complete opposite. That is what makes the collaboration called She and Him so fantastic– the ability to experiment and exhibit so many different styles.

BUY Volume Two
