I’ve mentioned books a few times, and did a quick review of a movie, now how about some music? I spend a lot of my work day listening to music, both to block out my coworkers and because I enjoy it. There are a couple of “indie” bands I’ve been listening to a lot lately so I thought I’d throw their names out there.
The more popular of the two is The Shins. They recently released their third album, Wincing the Night Away. This is a decent album, but if you want the really good stuff you should listen to Chutes Too Narrow and Oh, Inverted World. These two are fantastic, I can’t stop listening to them.
The second band is called Band of Horses. Their debut is called Everything All the Time and is quite possibly my favorite album of 2006. They are currently in the studio recording their second full-length.
If you like your music upbeat try out The Shins, if you enjoy a little melancholy go with Band of Horses, but I recommend you find any way possible to check out both of these bands as they’re both fantastic.
