2007: musical goodness.

Wow, what a good year for music so far! It seemed as if every band I like put out a new record. There were also a lot of great artists to discover. Here's a list of what I liked about 2007:

The Arcade Fire - Neon Bible
Andrew Bird - Armchair Apocrypha
Beirut - The Flying Club Cup
Deerhoof - Friend Opportunity
Dinosaur Jr. - Beyond
Dr. Dog - We All Belong Together
Feist - The Reminder
Iron and Wine - The Shepard’s Dog
Jens Lekman - Night Falls Over Kortedala
Jose Gonzalez - In Our Nature
Justice - Cross
Kanye West - Graduation
M.I.A - Kala
Of Montreal - Hissing Fauna, Are You the Destroyer?
Radiohead - In Rainbows
The Darjeeling Limited Soundtrack

Have I left anything out? Notice I did not include the new Wilco or Rilo Kiley. Good artists in the past, but this years records just weren't worth highlighting to me.

you're Wilco...boring! "Wilco Light". My top 10 list looks a lot like yours. and hey, do you come up with your own patterns for bags? If so, I'd love to buy one.

thanks for your comment. leave me your email so i can reply to you... or email me -- vanessa at vlephotography dot com.

i make up my own patterns, most of the time, as i go, so i rarely write them down. perhaps i will try to put together a tutorial, since a lot of people ask. let me know what you want to learn to make!
