This is The Dig’s second album and if I would have blogged more in 2010, their debut would have received a recommend as well. The album is flawlessly produced and every song has some interesting texture to it, I love that. But I don’t love it if the songwriting is not there to back it up, and The Dig does not disappoint in that category either. I’m going to say that they’re like a mellower Yeah Yeah Yeahs, with a male vocalist. See if I’m right.
PS congratulations to me, as of the end of June we are halfway through the year and I have so far kept my New Years Resolution of posting a recommended album every week – you can count ’em, there are 26 recommendations posted!
