Things are Looking Up

4/28 Show
I was starting to worry about what could possibly make my mid-year best of list, as there have only been a limited number of albums that I really enjoy so far this year. Luckily, things seem to be taking a turn for the better. New tracks from Wolf Parade and CSS show promise, and new albums from French Kicks, Santogold, Jamie Lidell, and the Breeders are growing on me. Add to that a new release from perennial favorites the Old 97's, and I'm feeling optimistic again. As for the playlist, the frontloading of live Wilco tracks was intending to get people excited for their visits to Colorado next week.
