Bad things about this month: basically everything else.
I did some random catching up with 2008 recently and have been enjoying a few things that I missed, most notably Blitzen Trapper and Bishop Allen. Unfortunately their albums as a whole are pretty inconsistent (and even annoying at times), but damn these are some good singles. Although the new Muse album is pretty embarrassing overall, Uprising is a catchy and fun track in spite of its terribleness so I was compelled to include it. There's some electro-pop-ish stuff on here, a bit of hip hop, and the usual assortment of indie and/or rock. I enjoy the unintentional thematic progression of tracks 13-15, and the closing song which is taken from a live session shows a promising future for the Rural Alberta Advantage. Not that I had any doubt.
There was a lot of overflow this month so next month should also be good.
