A slight diversion from my usual lists at this time of the week, but I have been going through my album collection at the moment, in order to put music on my new iPhone. (I was very lucky for my birthday and received the iPhone from the hubby and kids, which I just love 🙂 .)
So I thought I would share some of my favourite albums at the moment with the hope that you might leave me some suggestions for new music to add to the collection. I have quite eclectic taste liking everything from country to techno, so if you have something on repeat play on your iPod I would love to hear about it.
In no particular order here are my 10 favourites at the moment:
1. Antony and The Johnsons – The Crying Light
Very calming for me and was the album playing when I gave birth to our baby boy in January.
2. Girl Talk – Feed The Animals
A raucous mash up of old and new tunes. Really wanted to see Girl Talk when they were out in early Feb for the St Jerome’s Festival, but I had just had a baby so couldn’t quite make it. The festival access went pear shaped anyway, so probably lucky that I didn’t buy a ticket.
3. Eilen Jewell – Letters From Sinners And Strangers
Folk style album with a country twang.
4. Bon Iver – For Emma, Forever Ago
Beautiful lyrics, gentle guitar based tunes.
5. Kasey Chambers and Shane Nicholson – Rattlin’ Bones
Australian couple make their first album together. Roots, country flavour.
6. M Ward – Hold Time
More folky tunes. He does a very cool cover of Rave On.
7. Lykke Li – Youth Novels
Young Swedish lass sings some beautiful pop. My favourite track is Dance, Dance, Dance.
8. Bloc Party – A Week End In The City
This is their 2007 release. I do have their latest release Intimacy, but it just didn’t click with me as much as Weekend In The City. Flux and Where is home? stand outs for me.
9. MGMT – Oracular Spectacular
Bit of synth/elctro pop stuff. Fave tunes are Time To Pretend and Kids.
10. The Wombats – A Guide to Love, Loss & Desperation
Indie pop, rock. The lyrics are also quite hilarious in parts.
So tell me what else should I be listening to???
