What I’m listening to these days:
Sufjan Stevens – Illinois
A brilliant record, but the John Wayne Gacy song is creepy.
Youth Group – Skeleton Jar
A good record in the generic indie pop vein.
The National – Alligator
A somewhat disappointing record in the generic indie pop vein.
The New Pornographers – Twin Cinema
Too new to review.
Chad VanGaalen – Infiniheart
He’s Canadian, but not part of the scene.
Sam Champion – Slow Rewind
A short, decent, pop record.
