  1. i echo fleet foxes, future of forestry, ian mcintosh, the myriad and sigur ros strongly although all of those are great (haven’t heard hammock, johnny parks, or derek webb).

    i would add the following:

    anathallo — canopy glow
    gabriel wilson — lovely is death (you know that one though)
    the listening — transmission 1 ep (you know that one too)
    stars — in our bedroom after the war (not sure when that came out)
    stars — sad robots

    good list bro.

  2. I love gabriel wilson, the listening, and stars as well. I just haven’t had them in rotation as long.
