STAFF PICK:Jacob Borshard, Songs for a Small Stereo/The Last Brontosaurus (self-released): "Hyper-adorable and intensely endearing twee-pop as performed on a ukulele, the song 'Grass Stains' is so hot it gives me a Borshard-on. ZING! Bonus: both albums are available for free download at www.creebobby.com." (Kyle Olson, music director)
