Strand of Oaks - Hard Love
Hurray For the Riff Raff - The Navigator

Bedouine's self titled debut is a real stunner.  Definitely going to be on my top 10

The Lees of Memory put the best album of the year out today.

All other albums should step aside and bow their heads in reverence to its greatness.

Album has 24 tracks and costs $10 digitally.  If you are a fan of rock music, this is a no-brainer.

Kevin Morby - City Music.  Pretty decent but not quite on the level of Singing Saw.

The more I listen to John Moreland Big Bad Luv, the more I think this is the best album of the year!!!

I'll also add the new CRB to my shortlist.

I keep hearing about it and waiting to see it but it still hasn't been released yet -- it's due on Sept. 8.
