25 Albums (since 2000) you should own

Greetings music lovers,

 Today’s blog is a monthly continuation of 25 albums you should own and has the following parameters:

  • Album must have been recorded/released in or after to 2000
  • No duplication of artist
  • No live albums or greatest hits (kind of an all encompassing copout to include either)
  • Listing of my favorite track from said album (This is not so much a parameter but a mere bonus for your reading pleasure)

    I love that Bob Iver CD!! I need to get my blog up and running again and do this!! It would take a long while to formulate, but off the top of my head I might have Damien Jurado’s “And Now That I’m in Your Shadow”, “Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix” by Phoenix, Kathleen Edwards’ “Failer”, My Morning Jacket’s “It Still Moves, “The Private Press” by DJ Shadow, The Decemberists “The Crane Wife”, Destroyer’s “This Night” and a ton of other stuff…I don’t know if I could do it!! I left off Ted Leo, Arcade Fire, Ryan Adams, The New Pornographers, Spoon…

    Great list!!!

      I knew what you meant. are you a DBT fan? If so, check ou the new album. Really good. A little Patterson Hood heavy but really solid. Also, check out Slaid Cleaves. He is pure genius.
