Honorable Mention: Life Is Elsewhere- Little Comets

Image

My guilty pleasure album of the year has to be Life is Elsewhere, mostly because it really is not a very complicated or original sounding album. But there is just something about it that gets me every time I give it a listen. Its like it burns a little fire inside me every time I hear the jumpy chords and raucous guitar that fluctuates in intensity throughout the album. There is a lot of emotion in the vocals and having the constant help of the great instrumentation of the album makes it all the more jubilant. I am constantly reminded of Vampire Weekend but without the Graceland influences. So I guess its like Vampire Weekend without the world influences: basically the fun and innocence is what is consistent. A must listen for anyone that would like to get into a good mood, or remain in one, because not a single track on the album does not just take someone out of the dumps.
