Today saw the major label debut of The Decemberists for the indie-loving world and highly-anticipated sophomore outings from Jet and The Killers. Oh, and that Beck guy put out a new album too.
I've had the chance to sit down and listen to The Crane Wife (Decemberists) and Shine On (Jet) so far. I don't really have an interest in The Killer's new album...sorry kids, I just don't think their guarantees of it being the "greatest album ever" will meet my expectations, especially since I never got into them in the first place. I guess it's my inner "indie snob" coming through...
Beck is coming soon, I've heard good things but we'll have to wait until I digest the first two. Anyways, here's a few of my favorites from the previously mentioned albums:
Jet - Shine On
[mp3] Hey Kids
[mp3] Stand Up
The Decemberists - The Crane Wife
[mp3] The Crane Wife 3
[mp3] Yankee Bayonet (I Will Be Home Then)
