Underrated 2009 Albums - No. 2 - Arms - Kids Aflame
Arms is/are from Brooklyn (you'll soon get the idea that I have a thing for Brooklyn bands) and consist of Todd Goldstein (Harlem Shakes) who has produce an album resplendent with warm fuzzy shoegaze goodness. The results are a kind of mix of Conor Oberst, Scott Walker and some kind of clashy guitar goodness. It was recent voted in the top 10 of Paste Magazine's most underrated albums of 2009 and the honour is well justified.
