finding out true love is blind part 2
our last bit of lists, perhaps ever. and with these, we're gonna take the rest of the year off. see ya in '05, boys & ghouls.
favorite albums :
1. “shake the sheets” by ted leo & the pharmcists: it's a political album that doesn't beat its beliefs into your head or into the ground. even inspite of the election, leo's lyrics remain optimistic and inspiring.
2. “alphabetical” by phoenix: ever wonder what it would've sounded like if the neptunes made records with the beach boys, then check out this record. it's music to set the mood for you and your mandy moore type.
3. “you’re a woman, i’m a machine” by death from above 1979: so it appears that lead singer/drummer sebastien grainger is slamming kelly osbourne, which is a total bummer because grainger should be slamming mischa barton and rachel bilson at the same time after making this album. the sound is devasting and relentless, yet the lyrics are something out of stevie wonder's books, circa 1973
4. “funeral” by the arcade fire: whatever a better writer than us said about this, is what we meant to say, too.
5. tie: “the milk eyed mender” by joanna newsom & “medulla” by bjork: if you can hang with their voices, then you're stoked beyond belief because the voices are beyond beautiful.
6. “more adventurous” by rilo kiley: rilo kiley finally did it, an album that doesn't wear its self out after a couple of listens.
7. “talkie walkie” by air
