'Present Tense' by the Wild Beasts is definitely one of the best albums in 2014, no matter it's only early March as I'm posting this. I'm thrilled by the simple and effortless nature of these songs..... they invite me to listen to them again and again.
Local Natives – Hummingbird: great new album. Columbia, a song about one of the band member's recently deceased mother, is moving. Incredible drumming throughout, reminiscent of Philip Selway (Radiohead).
