Favorite Records of 2007 (so far…)

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about how great of a year this has been for music. I kind of feel like in 20 years people historians will look back and be amazed at all the greatness. So I decided to write all of my favorites artists who had amazing albums so far in 2007. A list of 21 bands, only halfway through the year, is pretty damn remarkable. If you don’t know what they’ve put out this year, then wiki it, it’s worth the trouble.
Still coming up there’s the new Rilo Kiley, Beirut, Beastie Boys, Smashing Pumpkins, and I’m sure many more that I can’t think of right now. It’s gonna’ be an exciting year.


P.S. The new Modest Mouse is shit, I didn’t forget it, and you can keep your Icky Thump, I don’t want it.
P.P.S. I forgot the new Shins album, which was amazing, definitely top 10 material.
