Haha, this would be a PR black eye nowadays.

The Lumineers, their self-titled debut album. For just about the past year, it has pretty much been the standard CD playing in my car. Sometimes I sing to it the entire drive to or from work. And I bought it on a whim at Target, not knowing it would become the album to this past year of my life. And the funny thing is, when I gave it its first run-through, I wrinkled my nose in disdain and disappointment. "This is boring! This sounds nothing like that one song they have playing on the radio!"
It might as well be stuck in my CD player for how often I take it out.
They're running just like you
For you, and I, wooo
So people, people, need some good ol' love

Nirvana - Incesticide
Bjork - Debut Live; Homogenic
Tori Amos - Under the Pink
