May’s 100 Albums for $5

Ahh, the joys of May.

With freedom from school and Cinco de Mayo right around the corner, what more could I want?

Some cheap tunes to kick-start my summer would be nice, and Amazon.com has answered my pleas with their list of 100 Albums for $5.

There are some pretty good albums on this list, so get ’em while they’re cheap!

My highlights? “Gorilla Manor” by the Local Natives and “Bomb in a Birdcage” by A Fine Frenzy.

I highly recommend snagging She & Him’s recently released “Volume 2” as well as “Feels Like Home” by Norah Jones.

There’s enough of a variety that there’s bound to be something for everybody.
