To avoid becoming arrogant with the music on my iPod, and to keep my music taste moving, I'm going to start making 'must listen to' lists ... Starting now, with albums. Some of these I've already listened to and want to properly get into. Others I have yet to enjoy.
ALBUM / BAND
Teen Dream / Beach House
Contra / Vampire Weekend
High Violet / The National
Congratulations / MGMT
Transference / Spoon
Hadestown / Anais Mitchell
Broken Bells / Broken Bells
This Is Happening / LCD Soundsystem
Plastic Beach / Gorillaz
Relayted / Gayngs
Forgiveness Rock Record / Broken Social Scene
There Is Love In You / Four Tet
That'll do for now. Also, I'm in Portugal, and the skin on my shoulders is peeling, and the sun is shining like a beast -- YAY SUMMER! Also, I got shortlisted for a poetry competition. It's called the 'National Poetry Anthology', which sounds grand, but I'm not convinced they know shit about poetry ... Anyway, fingers crossed, perhaps I'll be one of the winners!
