Last night I was going through some of my blog posts from the past couple months when I came across something from May titled Help– My Top Five Albums of 2009 are Way Too Mellow. A couple things have changed since then which made me realize I should do a follow up post. First off I got some great suggestions on stuff to listen to, both via the blog and email. One album that I couldn’t really mention till know was from the group My First Earthquake. I kind of over-dossed on their new album after listening to it a LOT for five weeks straight. It’s one of those albums that you can turn on at work and have it loop over and over again. The lyrics are really good too, somewhat unusual for a group with such a smooth upbeat sound. Another fun fact that might be of interest is that if you’ve used Google, interacted with work from Cooper or signed up for Aardvark you might have come across members of the bands design work.
Funny how time can change perspective (along with new releases). Here’s my current list—no laughing please. And if there’s been any other new releases that I’ve missed please let me know. I did go through everything that people suggested last time.
