What I'm Listening to This Week - December 12

There's always a plethora of really good, new music that comes out right around the holidays, and this year is no exception.  I've got Ryan Adams' self titled record on repeat this week.  He can do no wrong, and I'm loving the killer collection of tracks with a very old school electric guitar sound. "Kimberly" and "Shadows" are amazing. Also awesome is Bears Den "Islands."  Cheerful and profound, the London-based trio has taken cues from the likes of folk-rockers Mumford and Sons and The Avett Brothers yet have created something all their own.  Check out "Above the Clouds of Pompeil" and "Love We Stole." Hippo Campus nails it with "Bashful Creatures," on which the young band makes me feel all summery in the middle of winter.  This is a great one to just groove to.  Last this week, Brooklyn transplants to Nashville, Wild Cub's debut record "Youth" has been one of my favorite albums of the year. "Thunder Clutter," "Drive," "Streetlights," and "Windows" are all amazing songs. If you don't know these guys yet, be sure to give them a listen!
