My Little Ghost Friend Halftime 2007 Report

Yeah, the first half of this musical year is over. It's been a pretty good year. My Little Ghost Friend brings you its 15 favorite (note: not necessarily a "best of" list) tracks released (in the US) in 2007 through June (meaning no White Stripes, New Pornographers, Bishop Allen, Spoon et. al). Highly subjective. Duuuuuh. Just of what we've managed to sort through and listen to so far. Lots to catch up on, of course. I know I neglect hip-hop. I gotta work on that.
