Big winners this month: Of Monsters And Men, Green River Ordinance, Tyler Stenson, Amber Run. OMM to such a degree that, since we also moved into a new town this month, I’ll probably associate their new album with the new town for a long time.
Anyhow, until next time. Go listen to some good music.


  1. In iTunes, this is actually called “We Sink [explicit]” because it’s explicit, something I need to know for when I hook my phone up to the sound system at work, and because iTunes won’t let you add the little red ‘E’ to stuff manually. 
  2. Original song by Young the Giant. 
  3. Every time I type this name, it comes out as ‘ORdinance’ for some reason. 
  4. Original song by Tracy Chapman. 
  5. Using the Birdie cover of the song by Bon Iver.
