Last Week in Music was a good week, some new faces on there which makes everything so much more exciting. Starting off the list is Vetiver, who’s new album Thing of the Past just came out today. Lead singer of Vetiver Andy Cabic has chosen 12 of his favorite songs and has created an extremely touching cover album which go all over the place musically, but are all extremely beautiful. I highly recommend this album.

Next up was The Magnetic Fields, who are excellent to listen to no matter what. I tried to listen to all of 69 Love Songs (as well as Holiday and I) but I certainly didn’t make it. Then there was DeVotchKa, who’s newest album, A Mad & Faithful Telling, came out over 2 months ago, but I’m just now getting around to listening to it. I actually like it a lot, I’m pretty sure I like it more than their other albums. I also did a lot more listening to DCFC, mostly Narrow Stairs and The Photo Album.

Grand Archives came in at number 5, and I’ve officially added them to my list of albums to listen to this summer, which I think I’ll share with you guys in early June. I also listened to a lot of Cut Copy in preparation of seeing them live last week. Daft Punk made it onto the last somehow, I’m not really sure how, followed by Stars, Beach House (who I had a sudden urge to listen to) and finishing off with Fleet Foxes.
