I'm pretty sure that Contra would also like to have a word with Alex.

Seems like they left the door open for a Taylor Swift collab, though.

Not as immediately poppy as Beautiful Life, but still great. Hoping jj gets another full-length out soon. They've been one of the fre bands of the past few years that haven't had a real miss for me.

This sounds a lot like Rostam's Discovery project of a few years ago...meaning that I like it quite a bit.

Meh. I really preferred their stuff from Beets Me. I was hoping for something more similar to "Killer Tofu" or "Shout Your Lungs Out."

Going to toss this out: Hurts Like Heaven and Charlie Brown are two of the best things that Coldplay has ever done.

Waiting for Kirsten is basically everything you want from a Jens song--beautifully orchestrated, a great melody, and a truly hilarious story. I don't always laugh out loud when listening to a song, but when I do, it's usually by Jens Lekman.
