"It Must Be In The Air Here"

Say Hi - The Wishes and the Glitch
Verdict: Love More (<3)

Every once and a while I'll come across an album that it seems like I've been listening to all year, and I'll realize that I've not mentioned it on the blog yet. I wish my blog was as up to date with what I'm listening to right now, but that sadly cannot be the case. I'm going to blast you cool kids with as many of the albums I've just adored recently, some new, some old, all amazing.

The first is this album. Say Hi, formerly Say Hi To Your Mom, has had the potential to write this album for quite a while. It is truly a triumph for all of music. Greatest album ever? Some actually may say yes. I have no idea, honestly, but I do know that my body treats this album like water; it flows in and satiates a certain part of me in ways I didn't even know I needed. It has the same effect that last year's albums Boxer and The Broken String had on me, and that, my friends, is a very good thing. Say Hi is true at the top of their game on this album, but that's not to say they can't wow us with the next one. But enough talk about the next album, because, for now, I just can't seem to get enough of this album:

Say Hi - Northwestern Girls
(one of my absolute favorite songs of the year)
Say Hi - Zero To Love
Say Hi - Magic Beans and Truth Machines
