As we approach the 3/4 mark of the year, I decided to take a gander at what my Top 10 albums list might look like by year's end.
And it is astonishing who, as of now, is in danger of NOT making the cut. I love all of these albums, but as things stand... they're on the outside, looking in.
In alphabetical order, then, my list of also-rans:
Band of Horses
Cold War Kids
Jenny Lewis with the Watson Twins
Beck, Dylan, the Hold Steady, a few others... I haven't heard their albums yet. Same with some of the more notable omissions from the list above... unless they're already slotted between 1 and 10, of course.
But I can tell you it's gonna be really difficult to break into my Top 10.
Take that, Zimmy!
harvey danger - elvis, i don't love you anymore
radiohead - like spinning plates (live)

ghostland observatory - midnight voyage
beach boys - wouldn't it be nice
