This highly anticipated album by the huge Canadian group (seriously - there's a bunch of 'em!) has some of their best work.
1. World Sick
6. Art House Director
Check out my good friend Nick interview two members of BSS after their show at Wanderlust 2009 for his online indie radio show Off Air - Smart Rock Radio:
2. Crash Years
3. Your Hands (Together)
6. My Shepherd
Oh man, AND I get to see them at this year's Sasquatch! Music Festival!
Treats - Mom & Pop Music
I just finally purchased this surprising and shockingly kick-ass album by noise-pop duo Derek E. Miller and Alexis Krauss.
1. Tell 'Em
3. Riot Rhythm
4. Infinity Guitars
That's a good chunk of the album - yeah, they are that good! Loud, clever, and SUPER fun!
Band of Horses
Infinite Arms - Columbia
Sure, this is their third album, but its their first release on a major label. This country rock indie band started in Seattle back in 2004, and most recently opened for Pearl Jam.
5. On My Way Back Home
11. NW Apt.
Some are calling this their best release to date!
The Black Keys
Brothers - Nonesuch
Since they formed in 2001, Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney have released nine amazing blues-rock albums.
1. Everlasting Light
3. Tighten Up
11. The Go Getter
Auerbach also collaborated with several hip hop artists in January on the critically acclaimed project BlakRoc.
This is by far one my favorite albums of all time. It transcends genre and seriously entertains.
Who am I kidding? Listen to the entire album from start to finish!
It also includes great collaborations with artists like Kevin Barnes (of Montreal), Big Boi, and Saul Williams.
As you may recall from my last post, I almost missed the opportunity to see this great band live (at Sasquatch). After listening to this album, I gotta say I would have made a BIG mistake.
1. Dance Yrself Clean
2. Drunk Girls
4. All I Want
