March 20, 2007

Music in 2007 continues to be scary good.

It’s only March 20th, and we now have these amazing albums:

Released Already:
The Shins – Wincing The Night Away
The Good The Bad & The Queen – s/t
Menomena – Friend And Foe
Peter Bjorn & John – Writer’s Block
!!! – Myth Takes

Released Today:
LCD Soundsystem – Sound Of Silver

Coming Soon (I have cool friends who already downloaded them)
Feist – The Reminder (April 24th)
Grinderman – S/t (April 10th)

I need to listen to the Amy Winehouse album some more, but I’d include that.

But, in my opinion the new Air and the new Arcade Fire are disappointments…
