Hello gentle readers and Happy Thursday! This week's tracks post is going to be a little bit of a different format than it has been in the past. I enjoy lists, they help keep me productive and on task. Lists are also super informative and help give me ideas. It is my hope that the list I provide you in today's post will inform you of some bands or music stylings you may not have been aware of. May this list also give you ideas on what to download to your next playlist or perhaps purchase at your next visit to the record store. While some lists are ranked, this list is in no particular order. I am far too finicky to establish a set rank or choose only ten favorites. But instead, I give you ten albums that have been popping up on my playlists time and time again this past year along with some more recent summer additions. Each item on the list is provided with a link, so that you may sample the album, Enjoy!
- Kings of Leon: Come Around Sundown
- Death Cab for Cutie: Codes and Keys
- Ben Folds: Way to Normal
- Flogging Molly: Speed of Darkness
- Vampire Weekend: Contra
- Jay Brannan: Goddamned
- Mumford and Sons: Sigh No More
- Bright Eyes: I'm Wide Awake, It's Morning
- Senses Fail: The Fire

So, what song or album have you been listening to a lot of lately?
