I recommend the sequel

I've been very high on this album for months and if I redid my top albums from '07 this would be in the top 5. If you haven't already check out The Besnard Lakes. The album is called The Besnard Lakes Are The Dark Horse which is both clever and pretentious. Anyways, they are another band on the label jagjaguwar which has been putting out gold lately. They are definitely worth a listen.

I recommend

The first quarter of this year has spawned one masterpiece, one near masterpiece and a few other very good records. I will start with by top 2 and then the rest are in no particular order:

1. Bon Iver - For Emma, Forever Ago
2. Throw Me The Statue - Moonbeams

Black Mountain - In The Future
Ladyhawk - Shots
Colin Meloy - Colin Meloy Sings Live!
This Will Destroy You - S/T
Nine Inch Nails - Ghost I-IV
Hot Chip - Made In The Dark
Nada Surf - Lucky
Chris Walla - Field Manual
