Note: I’m not a music major nor a music critic, so I can’t exactly describe why these albums are good or why I like them. 

Obviously I have a ‘type’, and this is what I’ve been listening to a lot over the past 6 months or less.

Two of my favorite bands with new albums that did not disappoint:

Ghost Alive – The Boxer Rebellion

Vide Noir – Lord Huron

Blasts for the past still banging out good tunes:

Somethingness – Our Lady Peace

12 – Sloan

Come Tomorrow – Dave Matthews Band

Wildness – Snow Patrol

Crooked Shadows – Dashboard Confessional

Fun music:

CRAZYTALK – Mat Kearney

A pair of insanely talented musicians:

No Mercy In This Land – Ben Harper

Between Two Shores – Glen Hansard

For the religious types:

Reckless Love – Cory Asbury

Evergreen – Audrey Assad

Whole Heart (Live) – Passion

There Is More – Hillsong Worship

In the continued absence of a Black Album:

Africa – Weezer
