As we get ready for summer road trips and days at the beach I thought I would give you a few albums that are worth your while.

The Hold Steady, Heaven is Whenever- Craig Finn is back, not that he and his band ever left.  It seems like they have been on tour nonstop since Boys and Girls in America.  The bar room anthems are better than ever, with great piano and guitar. They are out on the road too and are absolutely worth seeing live. 

The National, High Violet- With deep baritone vocals from Matt Berninger The National have cut their own cloth. They should have a spot for anyone who longs for dripping sweaty songs that never really bare themselves completely but tantalize enough to keep you coming back for more.

The New Pornographers, Together- These guys jangle and ramble with melodic sense and power pop chords.  It helps that Neko Case is one of the key vocalists.  Anything she touches turns to gold.  A few listens to the album and you will never think of Canada the same way.

 Thanks for checking in!
