|here are my favorite albums from the first half of 2010 (there are only 4, but that's a lot of new music for me!) they aren't really in order (except that beach house - teen dream is obviously number 1!!) get a coffee & go straight to your local independently owned record store and buy these 4 albums immediately. (yes, you will need to leave your computer for this) you will have an incredible week if you do this simple task...
The Drums - The Drums (stand out track "Let's Go Surfing")
Vampire Weekend - Contra (stand out track "Taxi Cab")
Phosphorescent - Here's To Taking It Easy (stand out track "Mermaid Parade")
Beach House - Teen Dream (stand out tracks 1-12)
