Best of the First Quarter

So I'm taking a cue from Yayo and making a list of my favorite music from the last quarter (or so). This is, however, a list less oriented around judgement and more around calling attention to what I've enjoyed listening to. Also, I've not payed attention to album cohesion or consistency, so these tapes and albums have some duds. I've linked one of the better songs from each album underneath it as a frame of reference. Hopefully this will bring to people's eyes music they have missed. The albums are listed loosely from worst to best:

Rich Boy - 12 Diamonds
"All I Know"

Crystal Stilts - In Love with Oblivion
