Hail Selassie! Don't miss this early LITA jam.

This is probably my favorite record of all time. It features the unbelievably talented Wrecking Crew, backing Jim Sullivan, and the album is shrouded in mysterious disappearance that, to this day, remains unsolved. I'm certain that this album was used to signal aliens to come take Jim Sullivan back to his home planet.

Stripped down and earnest gem of a record. Listen to “Miracles” if you want to smile.

How can you top Volume One?! The Perfect soundtrack to laying on a cold floor while staring at the ceiling.

Rad comp of contemporary artists and bands covering their favorite songs. Kevin Morby's version of the Germ's "Caught In My Eye" rules!

This is a cool record! It sounds very spontaneous, but also grandiose and ambitious. It's tonally disparate but also somehow cohesive. Personal, but political. Somewhere in between Oar and Blows Against the Empire, with some After the Gold Rush-style arrangement and a little Sweetheart of the Rodeo too. Less about the Abyss itself than about how bewildering it can be to stare into it.

Being obsessed with a power-pop album is out of character for me, but this album rules. It's just good, any way you swing it. I think I've listened to "Miami" 27 times.
