Honorable mention to John Maus, White Denim, Toro y Moi, ScHoolboy Q. I also hope Cloud Seeding makes more songs with Marissa Nadler, as their two song release ‘Ink Jar’ was fantastic.

I’d also like to mention my love for everything that Dust to Digital brings to light. They recently released a 4 cd set of John Fahey and it’s amazing. You can listen to the first disc here: http://soundcloud.com/dusttodigital/sets/john-fahey-your-past-comes-1/
