What You Need To Hear

Some albums that get very little love on this site that need to be heard.
1Listener
Wooden Heart


Spoken word poetry mixed with indie influences to create one of the best albums of 2010. Dan Smith pairs his unbelievable writing talent with his charming southern twang to produce a unique sound that only he could pull off.
2Stag Hare
Sandpaintings


Beautiful ambient that produces a tangible and relaxing environment for the listeners to immerse themselves in. Godspeed You! Black Emperor for hippies, if you will.
3The Civil Wars
Barton Hollow


An album that caught me off guard with its unique genre-bending style, mixing folk, country, and a bit of indie to create an album full of surprises.
4Nana Grizol
Ruth


A fantastic indie gem that features one of the best tracks of 2010, "Cynicism". A must-listen for any fans of Neutral Milk Hotel who may recognize the familiar horns.
5Wild Sweet Orange
We Have Cause To Be Uneasy


A shockingly great album that I stumbled upon by accident one day and found myself in love with. If the opening track doesn't hook you in, then nothing will.

The Positives


Another example of how Kenny Vasoli is best away from The Starting Line. The first lines of 'Untitled' will have you pumped as fuck, I assure you.

Return to Struggleville


Another Listener album that deserves your attention. This has a more hip-hop based sound to it and utilizes several different clever methods of creating music. A definite buy for any fans of Dan Smith.
8Ben Konstantinovic
Rain Before the Storm


One of the most relaxing albums you'll hear, 'Rain Before the Storm' tells a story through instrumentals with each song as Ben uses his own method of "lap-tapping" to orchestrate a fantastic atmosphere.
9 I Can Make A Mess Like Nobody's Business
The World We Know


Ace Enders' side-project is one of my most cherished discoveries of the past year. His passion is so prominent in his work that he doesn't need a sparkling production to give his music a head-turning effect.
10The Morning Benders
Talking Through Tin Cans


Another little indie gem that poked its head up this summer to give me quite the surprise. It's both catchy and affecting in its music and writing, making for another great personal listen.

There's not much else to say about Kenny Vasoli except for that his voice is fucking magical.
