I’m so happy to see that the Discogs list of 2018’s best albums includes the amazing On the Corner Where You Live by The Paper Kites. This bit of the write-up is so spot on:
This album is drenched in feelings of solitude and loneliness; a quietness that’s almost meditative. The album isn’t concerned with impressing you with flashiness. It’s mature, confident songwriting and production at its very best.
