Music of 2007
I do love the lists. This is my top 10 Cd’s for 2007 with a few note worthy at the end. It’s tough to stick to 10.
Shout Out Louds, Our Ill Wills Love them. Couldn’t get enough of this. Swedish Indie-pop with interesting instrumentals.
New Pornographers, Challengers To me, their best CD yet. Brilliant songwriting.
Arcade Fire, Neon Bible Probably best album of the year. Incredible instrumentals, innovative, unique and hands down the best live concert of the year.
The Shins, Wincing the Night Away I’ve been a fan for awhile, this CD is fun and upbeat. Catchy songs.
Bishop Allen, The Broken String Brooklyn Indie. Good songs, good music.
Bright Eyes, Cassadaga Been listening to Oberst for years. Like the music, like the sound, like the lyrics.
Ok…and the note worthy which I listened to plenty.
Radiohead, In Rainbows Radiohead is not only different and brilliant. Putting their music out on the web for the taking at whatever price you want to pay puts them way ahead of the pack.
Kate Nash Been listening to four singles that I downloaded. Another clever pop rocker from Britain
Patrick Wolf, The Magic Position Young, musical and talented.
Arctic Monkeys, Favourite Worst Nightmare. They have taken rock to a different level.
Kings of Leon, Because of the Times. They just rock
Vampire Weekend, Vampire Weekend Cd to come out in early 2008 but you can hear the singles. This is getting lots of play in the house. Love them
Little Jackie. Not even sure where to link. Coming out on a new label. Love. Could end up being a favorite for 2008.
Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings, 100 Days and 100 Nights. Couldn’t help but throw in a little R & B. My friend told me about this. Good listening.
So, in the end there are 20 artists absolutely worth listening to which rocked my world in 2007. A huge nod to Jessica for turning me on to Vampire Weekend, Voxtrot and supposedly The Shout Out Louds although I am not sure about that one.
