Marty Solomon Gottesman, Razor & Tie Entertainment, New York, NY

1. Ray Lamontagne - Trouble
If Otis Redding and Al Green had grown up in a log cabin in Maine with Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young.... They'd make music together that sounds like Ray Lamontagne.

2. Prince - Musicology
So good to hear from the Sexy MF last year. Listening to this album makes me want to cleanse myself in the waters of Lake Minnetonka all over again.

3. Citizen Cope - The Clarence Greenwood Recordings

4. Cowboy Curtis - Observations | Assumptions (self-released)
Easily the best unsigned indie-rock I heard all year... http://www.cowboycurtis.com/

5. Snow Patrol - Final Straw

6. The Arcade Fire - Funeral

7. Joss Stone - Mind, Body & Soul
Soooo hot.... want to touch the heiny....

8. Ambulance Ltd. - LP

9. Elliot Smith - From A Basement On A Hill
Sadly, sometimes a person's best art is created during his most tragic hours.

10. The Delays - Faded Seaside Glamour
