When I put together my best of list in 2013, I made one very regrettable mistake. I should have made my #3 album of the year - Pretend to Be Brave by Boat, my definitive #1 album of the year. I feel really good about my #1 pick this year, but the only album in my top ten that gives me any pause is this album by Seahaven.
It’s one of those kinda records that has a sonic tapestry that kinda reminded me of Sunny Day Real Estate records in the 90’s. I say that because their records kinda had distinctive sounds and you knew what kinda journey you were going to embark on when you sat through the first couple minutes of the opening track.
The skies are grey this New Years Eve morning and I can’t think of a better album to have on right now.
