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.
