Album of the Month: July 2007

July was packed full of amazing releases. With Spoon, Justice, Tegan and Sara, and St. VIncent all releasing quality collections, choosing a winner for the month is much difficult than it should have been. In the end, though, one album stands above them all.
St. Vincent: "Marry Me"
Annie Clark's debut album is absolutely phenomenal from start to finish. Though at times she can sound like many similar artists, it is her superior songwriting skills and the album's relentlessly complex instrumentation that sets St. Vincent apart from her contemporaries. If I were a true music writer, and not just a humble blogger, I'd be throwing out the adjectives right now. However, describing the magic of "Marry Me" is fruitless unless the party you're describing it to has a sample to listen to. Buy this album! I can't make that clear enough! As of right now, this is the most impressive album of 2007 and I don't anticipate any album topping it this year.

Tegan and Sara: "The Con"
