'07's Music to Love More Than Music: Love, pt. 7

Lifesavas - Gutterfly
Man this is one sick freaking hip hop album. I hate that I have very little to say about hip hop albums other than phat funky beats and and fire hot rhymes being spit by smooth and or rough vocals ... but these cats know what their doing.
Lifesavas - Gutterfly

Simone White - I Am The Man
Simone White - I Didn't Have A Summer Romance
Simone White - The Beep Beep Song
Simone White - The American War

Monkey Swallows the Universe - The Casket Letters
Cute alt country abound with themes of loneliness and love.
Monkey Swallows the Universe - Bloodline

Say Anything - In Defense of the Genre
Pop Punk triumph (though I think JJ might disagree with the Pop Punk part). One of the most intelligent lyricists in music, not just Pop Punk. The vocals always seem to stick out a lot with this band, which puts me off a little, but everything other than that is pretty amazing.
Say Anything - No Soul

Yoko Ono - Yes, I'm a Witch
What could possibly be better than some of the weirder bands out there covering one of the weirder musicians.
Blood Brothers - Yes I'm a Witch (Yoko Ono Cover)

Panda Bear - Person Pitch
Music at it's best it seems...
Panda Bear - Search For Delicious

Peter Bjorn & John - Writer's Block
There's a lot of talk about these guys, and, simply, that's because they've composed a really well thought out album with many diverse sounds but enough of the familiar sounds. It's just a really smart album.
Peter Bjorn & John - Lets Call It Off

Porlolo - Storm and Season
Creepy at times, but always sweet sounding, This alt country folk sound th atPorlolo has cooked up is sure to catch the ears of a few people out there ... once they get a wider release.
Porlolo - Saw Your Head

Rasputina - Oh Perilous World
Gosh these cats are crazy. The kings and queens of Turn-of-the-Century-Londontown Street-Urchin Metal. It's awkward on so many levels, but that's why I love it ... that and these cats know how to play their instruments well.
Rasputina - 1816, The Year Without a Summer
Rasputina - In Old Yellowcake

Saul Williams - The Inevitable Rise and Liberation of NiggyTardust!
Again with the "I have very little to say about how awesome hip hop albums are" thing. This album is just crazy amazing. I guess all I have to say is "Nothing!" (inside joke, listen to the song and you'll get it)
Saul Williams - NiggyTardust

Shitdisco - Kingdom of Dear
Funk-infused Dance Punk with as much ego as the Electric Six and the Hives.
Shitdisco - I Know Kung Fu
