TV on the Radio- Dear Science- I was a fan, but ambivalent about this album, but saw them at the Brooklyn Masonic Hall and was blown away and haven't stopped listening to Dear Science ever since!
Gnarls Barkley- The Odd Couple- this record delivered on the promise of St. Elsewhere. The" Going On " video can only show you the way the rest is up to you.
J*Davey- The Land of the Lost: This is a pleasure that continues to unfold layer after layer…
Kenna- Make Sure They see My Face: Kenna's record stayed on repeat for months…
Subtle (Oakland Ca) these guys are awesome and their TV on the Radio affiliation has to be why Tunde started rapping! Check this out!
