In My Opinion:

... these four albums are the best of 2010 so far.
... and you should listen to them,
... they will be my albums of the summer.

+ Infinite Arms - Band of Horses. Just came out on Tuesday and I'm madly madly in love with it, especially "Compliments" and "Blue Beard."
+ The Dark Leaves - Matt Pond PA. I. CAN'T. STOP. LISTENING. It's so so good. Especially "Starting" and "Sparrows" and "The Dark Leaves Theme." But especially "Starting."
+ Volume Two - She & Him. Because it's still the happiest album I've heard this year. It's just so lovely.
+ Teen Dream - Beach House. Yes, that is the album cover. It looks solid white, but it actually has a very faint zebra pattern. [*** Edit: the solid white cover has been bothering me all day, so I adjusted the colors so that the zebra print shows up. I know, I'm OCD.] And "Zebra" is my favorite track from the album, but every time I listen to the album a different song catches my attention, like "Used To Be" and "Walk In The Park." I am going to be playing this one a lot this summer.

Do you have a favorite album for 2010 yet?
Do tell.
