Top 10 mp3s of the Week (7/1)

Well well well. It looks as though a celebration may be in order. The humble little weekly column strewn together by Jeremy Larson and myself each week has just reached its one month anniversary! Due to loyal readership, compelling suggestions (keep ’em coming), and an unremitting urge to hunt down the week’s best mp3s and arrange them in an orderly fashion, we’re moving on up. As long as you’ll listen (and probably longer), we’ll be here to sift through the bad and bring only the good into the respective spheres of each and every one of you, because, at the end of the day, why waste your time on filler when you’ve got 10 sure things waiting for you every Friday on CoS? That’d be absurd. This week’s lineup is an almost 50/50 split between some of the biggest names in music (Björk, Wilco, T.I.), to some relative unknowns (Class Actress, Doomtree’s forthcoming Wugazi), the variation of which I feel is a good microcosm of the music scene on the whole. Of course the little guys can (and will) win your hearts, but the veterans never relent. These songs ought to help you usher in the month of July in booming fashion. -Winston Robbins
