Best of 07 pt. 4-Your Mom

And we are back on the best of 07 road after only a minor detour through 06-ville. This is the award that goes out to all the big Indie acts out there that were able not to disappoint us this year, more specifically 3 fine gentlemen whom only need an acoustic guitar and a sweet vulnerable voice to woo us over.

The Best "Oh My God My Mom Even Likes This Song (alternatively Best Acoustic Album) of the Year are:

Jose Gonzales - In Our Nature

One of two Swedes in this category, this fine gentleman won our hearts over with his soft voice making us feel alright that there is no god... Inspired in part by Richard Dawkins "God Delusion" this album explores the depths of the human condition.

Jose Gonzales - Killing for Love

Jens Lekman - Night Falls Over Kortedala

The second Swede up for this award he is a great deal happier than his countryman Jose, and he even has a Swedish sounding name, not that there is anything wrong with Jose. After promising never to make another proper album he went ahead and made another proper album.

Jens Lekman - Friday Night at the Drive-In Bingo

Iron and Wine - The Shepherd's Dog

The lone Yank on this list Sam Beam's third full length release seems him rocking out, or as close to it as Iron and Wine can get. You have already heard enough about this politically inspired album so no use in saying more...

Iron & WIne - Flightless Bird, American Mouth

thanks for staying,
