  1. this post demands second guessing. what about m ward? or NASA? those would be the two that I miss. otherwise, what a lovely little list, I didn't realize how much good stuff was just this year.

    last-minute kvetching - number one except for the lyrics? the lyrics rawk! @kate_dc

  2. thanks kate!

    These are just the albums that I listened to. I am only one man. I have missed the NASA album. I will definitely take a listen. But M Ward is just not someone who gets my juices flowing. Thanks for the feedback and I'll check out NASA ASAP.

    WRT to Metric, perhaps I should clarify... I just think that the lyrics on Wolfgang Amadeus are far far better...

  3. correction. instead of saying albums that I listened to... it should read 'these are albums that i continue to listen to'

  4. Have you checked out Deastro's new album..I think that would be right up your alley with this list. Definitely some good choices though.
