I enjoy forcing my musical tastes on people just as much as the next girl. Ever have that twitching feeling when you're in someone else's car, and they're listening to screeching lemurs or Tom Waits?
A brand new list of my favorite artists and albums? Just what the internet needs from me and a fantastic way to kick off a shiny new blog. Here goes:
1. Mew- Half The World Is Watching Me (2007)
I couldn't possibly ever get tired of Mew. If you need something diverse but not overwhelming or inaccessible, try it.
2. The Shins- Wincing the Night Away (2007)
3. Sufjan Stevens- Come On Feel The Illinoise! (2005)
4. Ra Ra Riot- The Rhumb Line (2008)
5. The Tallest Man On Earth- Shallow Graves (2008)
6. Neutral Milk Hotel- In The Aeroplane Over The Sea (1998)
7. Silversun Pickups- Swoon (2009)
8. Elliott Smith- Either/Or (1997)
9. Aesop Rock- Labor Days (2001)
10. The Format- Interventions and Lullabies (2003)
