Talking Heads - More Songs About Buildings and Food

A friend recently introduced me to this, as I was only familiar with the most popular Talking Heads (namely Fear of Music and Remain in Light.) I love it. An exciting pop record.

Nick Drake - Five Leaves Left

Makes my heart ache.

Sufjan Stevens - Illinois

I've preemptively considered this record a classic, because I know it will become just that. Sufjan Stevens is a singular voice of light in the darkness.

Ryan Adams - Heartbreaker

Duh.

Dirty Projectors - Bitte Orca

A record I hated when I first heard it. Now I own it on vinyl and it's one of my favorites! Proof that the best records are growers. Patience and time are necessary.
