Tex's Summer Short List

The National - Trouble Will Find Me
Why it is awesome - I'm always a bit trepidacious when one of my favorite acts puts out a new album, particularly when their fame is exponentially increasing. The National hasn't let anyone down with their latest release.

Bleeding Rainbow - Yeah Right
Why it is awesome - Nice big 90's college rock sound.

Caveman - "In the City"
Why it is awesome - Just when I thought I was over 80's synth in new music, this track drops. Too catchy.

Toro Y Moi - "Harm in Change"
Why it is awesome - Really fun dancey track, kinda has a Justin Timberlake thing going on.

Why it is awesome - Jenn Wasner from Wye Oak's 90's R & B / Dance project. My officemate Dan and I have been in serious talks to develop synchronized dances to some of these numbers.
