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