Good news everyone! One of my favorite bands, Stars, has a brand new album dropping September 4th entitled The North. These guys have been around for a while and they release a new album every couple of years. The North will be Stars’ sixth studio album. I gotta say I am freaking excited.
This post is really a bold prediction. Summer has barely started and already a number of staff writers, here at On The Couch, have voiced an opinion that Best Coast‘s latest and greatest album, The Only Place, is crowned album of the summer!
Album of the summer is traditionally an album that embodies the summer of a particular year. I can remember back to the summer of 2005, Motion City Soundtrack‘s second album was forever jammed into my car’s stereo. 2004 was The Killers’ iconic Hot Fuss. The album has to be great enough so that when you hear it or think about it your mind immediately wonders back in time to a happier place.
