the indy list

Much like grunge’s goatees replaced new wave’s hair gel, it seems that as low-fi and emo firm up their cultural stance, they’re bringing back the full-blown beard. Here are 2005’s best albums that feature bearded vocalists.

  1. Calexico/Iron and Wine’s In the Reins
  2. The Church’s El Momento Descidado
  3. My Morning Jacket’s Z
  4. Anders Parker’s Tell It to the Dust
  5. Ryan Adams and the Cardinals’ Jacksonville City Nights
