Some of the Best Albums of This Century's First Decade
Twenty hours after my last entry, and again (or still?) sitting in the same library, I am doing some reading and listening to Wir Sind Helden.
The more I listen to it, this German band’s second disc, entitled Von Hier An Blind (From Hereon Blind), gives me instant bliss. In terms of my journeys of musical discovery over the last few years, they have been a move away from monocultured indie stuff to something different. Admitted, Wir Sind Helden are poppy and catchy, but their style has that certain lightness which makes you play an album over and over. Without ever seeming to get enough of it.
