the top 44 albums of 2 thousand 7 (32-29)

It seems these posts will be dipping into the new year, and there’s no way around that, I’ll try my honest best to get them out there for those who want some quality tracks or just a few bridges to some good music, thanks for being patient.

32. chris garneau: music for planes

The first time I listened to Chris Garneau, I was struck with the sounds of sharp similarities to that of Sufjan’s work. Sufjan has been my favorite artist for quite some time now, so that definitely caught my attention. As I continued to play Garneau’s music casually, it become more apparent to me that he had a completely different sound, one that was his very own. His hush whispers of haunting lyrics over beautiful piano melodies never failed to amaze me, and I still get shivers listening to this album even after so many months and so many spins. *SONG OF THE ALBUM*: “Relief”.

31. loney, dear: loney, noir

I remember hearing the first song I ever encountered from Loney, Dear, “The City, The Airport”, and when I saw that the Swedish native behind the band, Emil Svanängen, was releasing a brand new disc full of Loney, Dear material, I was more than excited to just have the chance to grab atleast one song similar to my first impression. What I recieved was an album that was built to spill with lush and blissful bright indie pop. *SONG OF THE ALBUM*: “Hard Days”.

-> Loney, Dear- I Am John [mp3]
-> Loney, Dear- Carrying a Stone [mp3]

30. the avett brothers: emotionalism

I was introduced to The Avett Brothers through this introduction (exclaims the band on the album cover), and this gave me the chance to check out some of their earlier work. I can comfortably state that Emotionalism is a definitive statement from this group. One of the more aesthetically poweful folk albums of the year, this piece blooms with emotion (hence the title) while holding on tight to raw folk roots. *SONG OF THE ALBUM*: “Paranoia in Bb Major”.

-> The Avett Brothers- Die Die Die [mp3]

29. interpol: our love to admire

Interpol’s new album didn’t get a lot of love from the end of the year lists this time around, but the fact of the matter for me is that this is still frunking Interpol, and the majority of this disc is a roundup of some mighty gems. The one thing that ticks me off are people that always believe a band’s first album is their best, and gives barely a chance to whatever albums come after that first one. If you give this album a fair chance, it’ll come out making quite the impression on you. *SONG OF THE ALBUM*: “Pace Is the Trick”

-> Interpol- Pace Is the Trick [mp3]
-> Interpol- Rest My Chemistry [mp3]
