2. MUSIC: The Garden, the Shondes
Plenty of adjectives exist to describe the Shondes — queer, Jewish, transgender, riot grrrl — but the Brooklyn quartet's fourth album, The Garden, defies the need for anything other than open-eared appreciation. On the just-released album, the Shondes, as always, provide energetic yet carefully orchestrated songs that capture emotion in its most sincere forms. Though the band's name is Yiddish for "disgrace," this album is nothing of the sort; each song has its own spirit that will break your heart and then effortlessly mend it.
