I’m pretty proud that the list of my favourite albums released in May features artists from five different countries: the US, Ireland, the UK, Australia, and Texas ;-D
My monthly lists will always be in alphabetical order, but I do call out my favorite album of the month. I hope you’ll sample all of the albums on my lists, but if you only have the time or money to check out one, go for the Top Biscuit.
For May, Once I Was An Eagle by Laura Marling takes the biscuit! Wow, what an amazing piece of work. From start to finish, the entire album is absolute folk music brilliance. The videos released thus far are also extraordinarily biscuit worthy, featuring dramatic representations of Laura’s amazing songs through stunning contemporary dance.
As usual, click on each cover or title to sample or buy via iTunes, or look ‘em up on your favorite music service. A link to previous “best of” lists appears at the bottom of this post.
