2009 is shaping up to be a good year for music. We’ve got the Dark Was the Night Compilation, new music coming from Conor Oberst, Ryan Adams being retired rumors seem bullshit, Dylan release in a few days, Phish reunion, Wilco releasing new stuff, Andrew Bird, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. Off the top of my head.
And there’s nothing better than finding new music, right. To that end, a listen to this new compilation of artists on the Merge label is fruitful. You can stream the new album and hear new music from artists like Bright Eyes, Ryan Adams, St. Vinence & The National, Death Cab, Broken Social Scene and other artists that may be new to you, too.
