The updates are coming, the music is here.

I keep feeling bad about not writing here more often, but then I think: guess what? It's been a tough semester.

I've been enjoying the new (not-so-new by blogger standards) Sea Wolf, Weakerthans, Maritime, and Georgie James albums a good deal.

Georgie James: Places
I was a little disappointed by the Georgie James album for basically the same reason I initially had problems with the Broken String. With Places, I'd become so attached to the sound of the EPs that the changes in the songs bothered me a bit. And unlike BA's more successful EP compressing attempt, the studio revamp sounded awfully overdone and just a bit too...straight-edge? I like rough edges to my pop.

Sea Wolf: Leaves in the River
Here's the way I usually get into albums: there'll be a track or two I'll slowly let seep into my music-listening habits. Sometimes it will get to the point where I can't help but buy a whole album; sometimes I'll just settle with a few more tracks from eMusic, iTunes, more sketchy sources. Sea Wolf is a great example of where this method leads to success (see previous posts), and also serves as a case study of why bands should leak tracks before an album's release. Leaves in the River is well on its way to making my list of this year's best releases - my only critique is that the introductions on a number of songs, including "The Rose Captain" and "Neutral Ground" are just a little off, not to mention too long.
