My top 50 albums of all time, on a ukulele. This week it's time for the most recent album on the list. Hippo Campus - Landmark.
Man, what a debut album. I first discovered these guys while they were on tour with Marsicans in the UK. I didn't get a chance to check out their music before the show but boy was I blown away. They are everything you could ever want in a rock band. Riffs and harmonies in abundance and so playful with the instrumentals. Not to mention they are all super skilled musicians. Ive easy listened to this album 200+ times since February.
- INTERESTING FACT ABOUT THE ALBUM -
The album was recorded at Sonic Ranch, a residential studio located on a 2300-acre pecan farm near the border between Texas and Mexico. "You're just in the middle of the desert, and there are these pecan trees for as far as you can see," says guitarist Nathan Stocker. "It's pretty surreal—kind of like a dream."
