ALBUMS THAT WERE V IMPORTANT TO MY ADOLESCENCE

  1. Rilo Kiley - More Adventurous
    Jenny Lewis was/is my idol. The line "with every broken heart, we should become more adventurous" got me through my first breakup.
  2. Ben Kweller - Sha Sha
    When you were 15 and awkward and angsty and felt like you didn't fit in this was just the best.
  3. Dashboard Confessional - The Places You Have Come to Fear the Most
    #emokid
  4. The Postal Service - Give Up
    I think this was when I discovered "indie rock" on the Internet (or Limewire, or Kazaa)
  5. Damien Rice - O
    Beautiful, haunting, romantic, sad, sexy.
  6. Brand New - Deja Entendu
    #emokid
  7. The White Stripes - De Stijl
    My mom bought me the wrong album (I wanted White Blood Cells) but I ended up liking this one better
  8. Led Zeppelin IV
    Went through a BIG Zeppelin thing after I saw Almost Famous. Wore lots of jewelry and skirts over jeans 🙈
  9. The Juliana Theory - Understand This is a Dream
    #emokid
  10. Coldplay - Parachutes
    Those first two albums were so good.
  11. The Strokes - Is This It
    Self-explanatory
  12. The Shins - Chutes too Narrow
