Love So We’re About Halfway Through, and These Are the Best So Far

These two records are right now battling for 2007 dominance in my mind:
Dan Deacon’s Spiderman of the Rings (This is the video for “Crystal Cat”)
and Battles’ Mirrored (This is the video for “Atlas”)
These two albums both make me shit my pants, honestly, but JZ, Eric and Megan disagree.
Eric is enamored with LCD Soundsystem’s Sound of Silver and Of Montreal’s Hissing Fauna, Are You the Destroyer?
Here’s “All My Friends” from Sound of Silver.
JZ agrees with me on the Battles, but he luuuuurrrvvveesss the Avett Brother’s Emotionalism.
Here’s the Avetts on Conan O’Brien:
Megan prefers to stay local, shouting out the Whore Moans’ Watch Out for This Thing. She also adores Ted Leo always, so his new one, Living with the Living, makes her list. But she’s also really indecisive and says she loves the new Modest Mouse and the new Arcade Fire, as well.
Here’s the video for “Bomb. Repeat. Bomb” from Ted Leo.
Anyhow, I think mine are the best, but I’m sure you disagree.
