Try as I might, I could not choose between these two albums.  They're both great, unique, and addicting albums.

Fun. - Some Nights

Delta Rae - Carry The Fire


Passion Pit - Gossamer

So good.


Taylor Swift - Red

Another great album from Taylor Swift, not quite as strong as Speak Now but still more wonderful music from her.


Ellie Goulding - Halcyon

She went from someone I'd never heard of to taking over my ipod.


Freelance Whales - Diluvia

SUCH a great album.  Do yourself a favor and get their stuff.  You'll love it.  And I apologize for calling them Freestyle Whales on the podcast.


Jay Brannan - Rob Me Blind.

If he isn't one of the best singer/songwriters out there right now then I don't know what I am talking about.


Macklemore & Ryan Lewis - The Heist

I bought this album to show support for a hip-hop artist brave enough to put out a song like Same Love and then come out and defend the teacher who was suspended for playing it in class.  I didn't expect to have one of the best albums of the year on my hands, and one of my favorite hip hop albums ever.


Shiny Toy Guns - III

Another album that came out of nowhere.  A welcome return and a brilliant comeback release.


Frank Ocean - Channel Orange

This guy is on pretty much every top ten list and deserves it.  This might be the most important hip/hop release in years not just from his personal life but because it's just that damn good.


Flobots - The Circle in the Square

I've been listening to and talking about this album since it's release months ago.  The first time I heard it turned into fifth time I heard it because I could not turn it off.  Lyrically brilliant, musically stellar, important, entertaining, smart, unique.  Top of their game.  Do yourself a favor and buy this.
