My favorite albums of 2006

These three albums found their way to my ears and stayed...


Trespassers William "Having"
Really pretty atmospheric songs from this Seattle-via-California band... like Mazzy Star and the Sundays... with some of the spacy minimalism of Slowdive's "Pygmalion"... the kind of songs that don't fit on mix tapes because they're not concise four minutes popsongs... drawn out compositions, beautiful vocals, lots of reverb...



The Radio Dept "Pet Grief"
Fuzzy shoegaze guitars from Sweden... new wave retro-synths like the Postal Service... sensitivity and pop sense of Trembling Blue Stars....



Rose Melberg "Cast Away The Clouds"
The perfect singer/songwriter for my life... I've loved everything she has written and everything she will.... 100% devoted to Rose...
