Unlike last week this is a good week for music. First, however, I want to point out an error. There was another album last week which should have been included: Torches, by Foster the People. Everyone loves Pumped Up Kicks, and why wouldn’t you, it’s a great tune. But this album has more to offer than that. I highly recommend it.
Now, on to this week. It’s an eclectic week for sure. From perennial favorites to rockers turned ukulele players, here’s what I’m listening to this week:
Death Cab For Cutie – Codes and Keys
Rock that is smarter than you, about things you probably understand well. No surprises here, just another great album from the guys from Bellingham.
Eddie Vedder – Ukulele Songs
A great album of mumbles and a tiny four string guitar. Who knew that this would work?
Flogging Molly – Speed of Darkness
Again, what you might expect. Loud, fast and mostly to do with drinking and fighting.
My Morning Jacket – Circuital
These guys kind of feel like this generations Pink Floyd. That continues on this album. It’s kind of epic.
