New York's own Sunflower Bean has released their second album. TwentyTwo in Blue, and it is magnificent. I've always been a sucker for wispy pop and this record really delivers in that department. Here is my favorite track...

The Fratellis: Sugar Town (Track of the Week)

The fifth album from Glasgow's fab band The Fratellis dropped last week on my birthday and I have been loving the crap out of it for the last week. In Your Own Sweet Time sees new musical avenues traveled by the trio including this new corker of a track, "Sugartown."

I can't wait to see them at First Avenue in May!

The Triumph of The Decemberists: I'll Be Your Girl

The city of Portland, Oregon has given the world many fine bands. One of them is The Decemberists who just released their eighth album, I'll Be Your Girl. It is a most triumphant record filled with soaring and anthemic pieces of music ("Once in My Life", "Tripping Along") that one would expect to hear as show closers at giant festival concerts.

But it also has introspective moments like my favorite track, "Cutting Stone."

This is a great record to kick off the Spring. Check it out!
