I've decided to get rid of the monthly listening post and instead post when I have a handful of new releases. This batch features new material from a strong lineup of artists, especially the highly anticipated albums from My Morning Jacket and The Hold Steady. My take: Evil Urges is better than some of the critical reviews written about it while Stay Positive is solid but not close to the Hold Steady's last two albums.
The Hold Steady - Stay Positive
My Morning Jacket - Evil Urges
Dr. Dog - Fate
The Avett Brothers - The Second Gleam
Amos Lee - Last Days at the Lodge
Fleet Foxes - S/T
