Release the hounds!
In what’s becoming all too regular, we’re combining last week’s purchases with this week’s. Longer lists look better, right?
- Caitlin Rose - Own Side Now (buy the CD/buy the MP3s)
- The Dodos - No Color (buy the CD/buy the MP3s)
- The Joy Formidable - The Big Roar (buy the CD/buy the MP3s)

I recently got my hands on The Joy Formidable’s 2009 release, A Balloon Called Moaning. This is the opening track off the album and does a great job at setting the tone for the rest of the songs that follow. Consisting of atmospheric, yet slightly fuzzy indie pop, each track on this album is filled with ear-catching hooks that balance the right amount of grit and polish. Other favorites include “Cradle”, “Whirring”, and “The Last Drop.”
