1. Hayden - Us Alone
2. Neko Case - Fox Confessor Brings The Flood
3. Volebeats - Solitude (incomplete album)
4. Real Estate - Days (incomplete album)
Most of these albums took a few listens to grow on me but lately I've been listening to little else. They are all very well written, mostly vocal (Solitude contains a great many instrumentals), somber pop albums. Enjoy!
