  1. I loved the new Allo Darlin' as well - I haven't listened to most of these on your list so I will check them out, thanks! What did you think of the latest Lloyd Cole?

    1. Thanks for stopping by! Hope you find some new music to enjoy. I also recommend the debut from Alvvays. Very tasty. The newest Lloyd Cole was my #8 pick for 2013, so I think it's pretty damn good. Definitely a recommendation!
