This week, we feature two albums that are completely different from each other in almost every conceivable way, with the exception being that they’re both pretty good. Nataly Dawn is a girl every guy has already fallen in love with without even knowing her name. Her new record is called “How I Knew Her.”On the flip side, we have an album called “Honeys”from an Allentown, Pa., band called Pissed Jeans. It sounds exactly the way you would expect it to.

Bullet for My Valentine, “Temper Temper”
