Start to Finish

Here are a few albums that I've purchased recently that are perfection from start to finish...

1. Be OK by Ingrid Michaelson
This album has got it all. Original compositions, acoustic performances, covers, and live performances. She is brilliant!

2. Lenka by Lenka
A while back iTunes gave away one of her singles and I was immediately hooked. And her full length album didn't disappoint. At all. Every song a keeper. Plus isn't the album art gorgeous?

3. Gossip In the Grain by Ray La Montagne
I've sung his praises before, so I wasn't surprised when I loved his album from beginning to end. His voice has all the warmth and richness that I love to listen to, especially in the fall. Really great Autumn music.

4. The Hotel Cafe Presents Winter Songs by Various Artists
I realize it's still only October, but this is the time of year that new Christmas albums start hitting store shelves. This album is 100% awesomeness. Check out just some of the artists on the album...
  • Sara Bareilles
  • Ingrid Michaelson
  • Brandi Carlile
  • Lenka
  • KT Tunstall
  • Fiona Apple
  • Holly Conlan
  • Meiko
  • Colbie Caillat
  • Priscilla Ahn
Impressive, eh? My favorite song is the first track, "Winter Songs", a duet by Sara Bareilles and Ingrid Michaelson. So beautiful.

Have you found some great music you would like to tell me about?
Please share!
