May was a month for revisiting old favorites. Not too many new discoveries this month, but a lot of good songs got played around here nonetheless.

Wow, That’s a Good Song: The Low Anthem, “Charlie Darwin”
By Sarah on May 30, 2010
The Low Anthem’s album Oh My God, Charlie Darwin, came out in 2009 (2008, if you count the album’s self-release), but I’ve only recently discovered it, and now I’m wondering how I managed to miss out on this album for almost a year. This is “Charlie Darwin”, the track which kicks off the whole album, which is sad and gorgeous and haunting.

But anyhow. Here, have a little mix of songs I’ve been loving or rediscovering this past month.
