This week is not quite as epic as weeks past, but I was eagerly anticipating at least one of these releases!
Adele - 21
So, maybe Adele isn't the most creative when it comes to naming her albums, both being named for the age she was when she was writing the songs. No mind, though, her voice is amazing and the songs are even better on this release. I was already loving the lead single, "Rolling in the Deep," but the rest of the songs live up perfectly!
"Rolling in the Deep"
Toro Y Moi - Underneath the Pine
This was Pitchfork's and Urban Outfitters' highly hyped favorite child. I don't think he's living up to the hype as well as some other recently hyped artists, it's still a good listen.
Both albums are available for online streaming; Adele's over at NPR and Toro Y Moi's on Urban Outfitters' website.
