More Music

I really am procrastinating now. Having posted New Pornographers, I realized I'd feel really bad if I didn't say anything about the two best albums of 2005 so far. So here they are...

Bloc Party - Silent Alarm

What can be said? Each song is brillaint. Wait, strike that, all of the songs save for one is brillaint. The one song that isn't up to par is "Banquet," which ironically is their best-known song thanks to KROQ and "The OC." Um...they're British, in some ways are like Franz Ferdinand, and you should check them out.

Best Songs - "Helicopter," "Blue Light," "This Modern Love," and "So Here We Are"

Sufjan Stevens - Illinois

Simply beautiful, epic, and haunting. Stevens not only captures the state's history, but he figures out a way to depict the most precious life situations with a few words or notes. With 21 tracks, it's a long album, and yet it never feels its length.

Best Songs - "Come On! Feel the Illinoise," "Chicago," "The Man of Metropolis Steals Our Hearts," and "The Predatory Wasp of the Palisades Is Out to Get Us!"
