Half way through the year, seems like a good time for this thread...

Strand of Oaks - Hard Love
Hurray For the Riff Raff - The Navigator
Craig Finn - We All Want the Same Things

...A lot I still need to listen to.  Help Me Out!

Bedouine's self titled debut is a real stunner.  Definitely going to be on my top 10

The Lees of Memory put the best album of the year out today.

All other albums should step aside and bow their heads in reverence to its greatness.

Album has 24 tracks and costs $10 digitally.  If you are a fan of rock music, this is a no-brainer.

Kevin Morby - City Music.  Pretty decent but not quite on the level of Singing Saw.

The more I listen to John Moreland Big Bad Luv, the more I think this is the best album of the year!!!

I'll also add the new CRB to my shortlist.

I keep hearing about it and waiting to see it but it still hasn't been released yet -- it's due on Sept. 8.

It leaked the other day. Definitely check out his back catalog. One of my favorite artists of the last decade or so. 

Also

Futurebirds- Portico II (ep)
Turnover- Good Nature

I think WOD can solidly be added to the best of 2017 list...
