A Higher Power by Jens Lekman

Well I’m pretty sure all of my music is going to be recorded correctly for a while, considering I’ll only be listening to music in one place, haha… Last Week in Music was pretty accurate though. At number one again is M. Ward, simply because I loved everything he did for the movie The Go-Getters so I’m trying to relive that feeling. After that is Sigur Rós and their new album Með Suð í Eyrum Við Spilum Endalaust (which coincidentally I’m listening to as I write this). I’m loving this new album a lot, it seems a lot happier then all of their previous albums.

Then at number three is Jens Lekman, who Iisten to obsessively, every album, all the time. It’s kind of funny that there was only one song different between the number three and two spot, and three songs between the number two and one spot. At four is Ratatat, who’s new album LP3 is also a slice of amazing. I was playing Nintendo over the weekend and listening to them and they sounded so good together. At number five is Belle and Sebastian, followed by Vetiver and DeVotchKa, who both have amazing new albums as well. Finishing up the list is French Kicks, the Norwegian crooner Sondre Lerche, and The Accidental.
