Half Moon Run - Dark Eyes

Up until the day of the show I was completely prepared to defend this album as my top choice. It has all the elements of a great album: a great sound, variety of songs, and three incredible, solid "single" worthy songs.

On first impression Mean Sun might just sound like a more ambient Broken Bells - and you wouldn't be wrong.
