welp, it’s time, friends, for another two in review.
i’m not sure if it’s bee a great two months of music, but it’s been good. there’s not been any major standout albums, but there’s definitely a few that have been solid showings and will likely find spots on my end-of-year lists. the big storyline on this two in review is that it’s the first in a long time to feature no hip hop. given the fact that the last one had several hip hop tracks, it makes this even more surprising. regardless, it’s a fun mix that i think you’ll enjoy.
without further ado, here’s the lineup for the may/june edition:
1. nate ruess: great big storm [from grand romantic]
2. david bazan: island ocean [from bazan monthly volume 2]
3. fleming & john: springtime [from TBA]
