What’s on Your iPod? 5/19

What new music is on your iPod?

I’ve got two new records I’m digging.

The first is the new Fleet Foxes, “Helplessness Blues.” If you liked the band’s first album, you’ll love this one.

The second is EMA‘s “Past Life Martyred Saints.” I have to admit, I’d never heard of EMA before this album, but around the time of the album release, it seemed I was hearing about her everywhere. Lots of music writers I follow were talking about the record, so I thought I’d give it a shot. It’s not what I usually listen to, that’s for sure, but I’m actually really digging it. It’s moody and dark, with a few glimmery moments here and there. If I were still in high school, this would no doubt be my favorite record.

What about you? What are you listening to?
