The Library

Each month, I’m going to start providing you with a list of the best music that was released the previous month.  In general, I’m going to stay off the beaten track (no U2 mp3’s for you, thankfully) although I can’t stay away from the new Death Cab.  I’m efforting to make a cute little mp3 player on the sidebar, which you can use to listen to these songs anytime.  In the meantime, here’s the April mp3’s that have been in high rotation for me.

I was going to go in alphabetical order, but this first one is by far the best of the bunch.  You need to own the entire album, as there isn’t a bad track on it.

Black Box Revelation- Love Is On My Mind

and this too:

East Hundred- Hammerhead

Aidan Moffat & The Best-Of’s- 9,000,000 Bicycle

The Artisans- Jazz Serenade

The Big Pink- Velvet

British Sea Power- A Forest (Cure cover)

Death Cab For Cutie- My Mirror Speaks

Great Lake Swimmers- Everything Is Moving So Fast

Home Video- I Can Make You Feel It

LR Rockets- Cameron Is Connected

Lykke Li- Knocked Up (Live on Carson Daly)
