So last year my AOTY ended being Lydia - Illuminate. Randomly threw on All I See from that album a few minutes ago. I honestly forgot how fucking amazing this album is.
I've listened to it consistently 70 times all the way threw. I never skip a track. That is so rare for me. haha
I never get tired of any of the songs. They're just all so amazing.
The Mid AOTY thread got me thinking about this year too. The only album that comes to mind is the new The Dangerous Summer album. Granted sometimes a skip a track here or there. I still love that album. It's just so good. I've listened to it a good 40 plus times.
I'm just really stoked for music this year. I'm really digging the new Emery too. I've never been the biggest fan either. Good shit.
"Don't you ever get lonely.."
EDIT: The good thing is I've also picked up 40 hours a week this month and next. So excited to actually have money for once and some spending cash for Chicago! Man I can't wait.
So lately I've been in this kick on listening to bands that I have already written off.
First it was Manchester Orchestra then it was The Dangerous Summer and now it's Death Cab for Cutie.
Don't ask me why I never took to them, but I'm kinda regretting it and loving it at the same time. It's awesome, awesome music and it's nice to have something new and a little different in the selection. I'm really loving Ben's voice and the melodies he comes up with.
It's really great listening for perfect Spring/Summer nights. I should have listened to my buddy Devan.
