Diversions :: Port O’Brien on Albums of the Decade

(Diversions, a recurring feature on Aquarium Drunkard, catches up with our favorite artists as they wax on subjects other than recording and performing.)

As the decade begins to wrap itself up, today's Diversions catches up with Port O'Brien's Van Pierszalowski as he runs down some of his favorite albums of the past ten years. The bay-area band released their sophomore album, Threadbare, on the TBD imprint earlier this month and can soon be found touring Europe beginning in November though mid-December. Do see this band live.


Modest   Mouse :: The Moon And Antartica - This record came out when I was just getting into music other than Green Day and Rancid.   A friend of mine gave me a Fugazi CD and   The Lonesome Crowded West when I just started high school, and I immediately was obsessed with MM.   When this record came out, it was the record of my life for a long, long time, and still is in a lot of ways.

Lil Wayne :: Tha Carter III - This is my favorite record of the last couple years, by far.   Its one of the most emotionally driven records in a long time.   Weezy is the best thing to happen to music since Kurt Cobain.

Little Wings :: Magic Wand - From Lil' Wayne to Little Wings.   Two records that are equally amazing, but couldn't me more different.   This is the best record to come from that whole "freak folk" or whatever kind of thing....   Every song is so different melodically, lyrically, and the album flows like no other.
