Best of August
Sorry this is a few days late, I've been extremely busy watching college football's opening weekend, preparing for my fantasy football drafts (yeah, more than one), and praying that my Detroit Tigers don't collapse over the last month of the season. But, there was some great music this month as well, so here it is: the shortlist of my favorite stuff of August.
- Joanna Newsom's Ys
- White Denim Wet Sand mp3
- Jracula Carpopolis mp3
- Deer Tick Diamond Rings 2006 mp3
- Grizzly Bear Knife mp3
- The Polyphonic Spree Sonic Bloom mp3
Also recommended from August:
Pitchfork's The 200 Greatest Songs of the 1960s, the Pet Sounds reissue, the Ethiopiques comps, the "Cowbell" remix, Sound Team's new b-side, Austin LaRoche's Hipster Test, Justin Timberlake's new record, and the Texas Kashmere Stage Band.
