One of my favorite releases so far this year, music wise, has been the White Rabbits CD 'Milk Famous.' I'd rate Now Now's 'Threads' CD pretty highly too. There's a song from each in the following playlist, along with a pair from Givers. I'm kind of late on that one I suppose, since it's from 2011, but I'm really enjoying it. Their album 'In Light' was a recent find at the library.
If you live in Portland and want to support the library, here's a survey they're conducting about funding and usage. I'll warn you in advance though, it's really poorly written. Still, it's always good to support the library.
