|Favorite Discoveries Of 2007|
Albums that didn't come out in 2007, but I just got and loved.
I don't know what took me so long to get into Elliott, but his music is brilliant and XO is the pinnacle of his music that I have thus far.
|2||Trilok Gurtu and the Frikyiwa Family|
Trilok Gurtu is a godly percussionist, and his collaboration with the Frikyiwa Family's music makes for one amazing album.
As I've really gotten into Eastern music lately, this album really helped me transition from Western to Eastern music.
|4|| ||Arvo Part|
Hard to listen to because its so minimalistic, but it really accompanies a lonely mood better than anything else.
Speak for Yourself
This woman has a great voice and a mind for pop music like none of her contemporaries.
|6||The Red Paintings|
After endless searching, I finally got a hold of this and it's really awesome music. The cover of Mad World is one of the best.
|7|| ||Nitin Sawhney|
Such an emotional, poignant album with incredible variety. Review coming soon for details.
Live! In Tune and On Time
Apparently Shadow has a great live show as well.
This is one of the few metalcore albums I actually like.
It's amazing that Ani could create even one enjoyable album with the rate at which she puts this stuff out, but this is low-key, subdued, and pretty cool stuff.
