Amadou & Mariam - Welcome to Mali, and Hecq - Steeltongue have both recently entered my top ten, and from the sound of it so far, The Field may have a shot.  Dredg and Passion Pit are both sounding pretty good too.

So the first single from Sarah Blasko's new album is pretty good. I'll definitely be picking it up when it's out.

No, seriously. That's the cover for "Wilco (The Album)". GOD I CANNOT WAIT FOR THIS THING.

The new Tortoise album just leaked (in 320kbps), and GODDAMN does it rule. It's going to take a few more listens for it to totally sink in, but I can already tell it's up there on the list for this year.

the new Riverboat Gamblers album ("Underneath the Owl"), is pretty awesome.  i picked it up today, was pretty dissappointed on first listen, and after three more listens, it's really REALLY grown on me.  the whole slowing-down thing takes some getting used to, but aside from "Sleepless" (a bit of a stinker if i'm being honest), it's a pretty solid album.


EDIT: a few more listens, and even "Sleepless" has grown on me!  Still the worst track on there, but still not one I'd want to skip.

The new Riceboy Sleeps album leaked. Although it's apparently an unmastered version, it's still really beautiful. It's very ambient but in a really warm, organic kind of way. Will most likely find its way into my top ten at year's end.

I might actually like it even more if they had an exclamation in there.

that said, "One Wing" is my favorite song ever, pretty much.

I have new favorite Top Album of 2009.



It's by a band called Police Teeth and it is called Real Size Monster Series. If the band name and song names ("I Made Out With You Before You Were Cool", "Bob Stinson Will Have His Revenge on Ferndale") don't hook you in, the music certainly will. They describe themselves as "If you're over 25: The Wipers meets Superchunk. If you're under 25: Hot Snakes meets The Thermals" or as their review in Three Imaginary Girls says, "post-working class-punk".

They are also really awesome live.

I really really like Passion Pit - Manners

Hell yes.  This plus Royksopp's Junior are my two favourites at the moment.  I have Fever Ray and Tiga's Ciao Ciao, but on first listen neither grabbed me.  I am gonna give them some more time over the next couple weeks.

I'm also grabbing a bunch of other stuff people have said sound good.  Haven't been keeping up with new releases lately.

I'd like to, but honestly I don't think it'd be appreciated by the band members--they are on tour after all and could use the dough (plus they have "Unauthorized duplication makes Baby Jesus cry" on the back cover).

I mean maybe I could up it for a few days and then take it off, but even then I would feel uneasy.

I will, however, put up a link to their Myspace.

Heh, was surprised to read the two of you enthusing about a duo who do edits of 70s disco... but I see this is a different Black Cock. :)  Weirdly, they have a song called 'Harvey's Machine' and DJ Harvey is one half of the Black Cock I was thinking of.

I like the other Black Cock too, but this album is incredible.

Sorry to do a poop on everyone's favourite album apparently but I don't think the new Wilco record is album of the year! It's pretty good and a lot less boring than Sky Blue Sky but it still has the same problem which is that Wilco have become too comfortable as a six-piece live band and therefore aren't as interested in pushing their own envelope in the studio, instead just kind of hoping that Cline and some electric piano will fill out their sound. The only difference is that Cline isn't being lazy on this record, so it sounds up to scratch.

My choice as of now would either go to :

Passion Pit : Manners

Japandroids : Post-Nothing

Dan Deacon : Bromst

Even though we all know that everyone major is going to say Merriwether Post Pavilion or Veckatimest.

A few days ago I grabbed some new stuff from Phoenix, Wilco, Whitest Boy Alive, Antony and the Johnsons, Metric, Animal Collective, Junior Boys and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs.

I have since deleted Wilco, Whitest Boy Alive, Antony and the Johnsons and the Junior Boys because they are all boring as hell.

Phoenix is a lot of fun and is getting a lot of play.  Animal Collective is impressive but not something I am gonna listen to all the time.  Metric is ok and I still haven't listened to it enough, and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs album is really patchy and I'm still trying to make up my mind about it.

I really like the Whitest Boy Alive album! It is a "mood album" because it is so chilled and loungey but it is absolutely perfect for that mood.

Est have you heard the Yuksek album? I think you would really enjoy it.

God damnit that Pheonix album is good. Same with Passion Pit.  Especially if you enjoy fun or dancing.

I posted about liking the Passion Pit record on Facebook and one of my friends expressed surprise that I would like music like that. I like fun, honest!

i would say the new mono except it seems like too much of a gimme.  best-of lists tend to get very long and i suspect a lot of them are basically "this is a list of every single album that came out this year that i would give higher than a 7 on the pitchfork scale".

so with that in mind, the pains of being pure at heart.  they're not original, yet they are.  it is an album i can't stop listening to.

same with the horrors.  first album was okay, but primary colours does a fantastic job, being as self-consciously dark and haircut as the cure but without irony or a sense of "we're doing this just to go over the last 30 years of british post-punk".  their hearts are in the right places.

i am happy to report that i like the new eminem as much as his classic stuff (marshall mathers, eminem show).  though he lacks lyrical diversity (the whole album is pretty much about valium/benzos with the occasional lindsay lohan reference) he's proven that he can still flow well, though i hate the weird accent he uses on a couple tracks.  the one about being molested by his stepfather is amazing, very dark.

still catching up on '08 albums so that's all i can think of offhand.

The Eternal is a mindblower. The Crying Light is a really remarkable album even if it's not an urgent one, and Antony's songcraft hasn't been finer. That Japandroids record kicks a ton of ass. Merriweather Post Pavilion doesn't do anything for me. Okay these are my opinions about albums posted on this page.

EDIT: It's Blitz is really good, Fantasies basically wishes it was It's Blitz, and I can't get over Passion Pit guy's Mercury Rev impression, it just grates on me.

I am getting the Yuksek album now, Dovey, danke.

Also, I am kind of expecting a couple of tracks from Manners to get remixes, they just sound really prime for it.  If I had any skill at all in that area it'd already be done.

That is one of the songs I was expecting, along with Folds in your Hands.  So uh, woo?

Bell Orchestre's As seen through windows has been on repeat for the last couple of days. It's been a grower, but it's really good stuff for catching up on some reading, so there you go.

On that Yuksek album: I liked Tonight quite a bit but don't really remember anything else from it.

Passion Pit, Phoenix, God Help The Girl, Fever Ray, Junior Boys, are topping it off for me so far.

Wilco is good but not AOTY material.

Really it's the fuccin phoenix record.

I don't know if anybody is into IDM, but The Field (Axel Willner) puts out some nice IDM. If you're not into ambient or repetitive music, this may not be for you, but I loved his first two albums (From Here We Go Sublime and Sound of Light EP). If you guys just want to put on some music to just chill out to, I would check out all of his albums, but his new album is a little different from what I expected. It has what I think to be a darker sound than it's predecessors, but this album seems more soothing to me overall, and I've really been digging this album now. My favorite album in 2009, right next to Telefon Tel Aviv's Immolate Yourself.

MSTRKRFT's Fist of God was pretty good too, but not quite as good as the first album (The Looks).

There's not many new albums I've been listening to, but once I do, there will hopefully be more than 3 albums on my list. I'm waiting for Jamiroquai to release their new album soon. I heard they're releasing that in late summer, so that'll defiantly be on the waiting list.

Yeah, the dude actually figured out how to make his bass thump a bit more and it makes the last few songs on that album pretty pleasantly surprising.

The Field- Yesterday and Today

So, this is out/leaked? Yay!

Fist of God was pretty freakin' mediocre except for a few tracks to me.

I also had no idea that the Field album was out there.  And it is awesome.

Fever Ray is still the album of the year decade ever though.

Yeah it was basically just bloghouse with raps but neither element was particularly well-executed.

I think it's too early to make a list, but the Wilco album certainly won't be there -- unless, it's a really bad year.

Really? I'd rank it in my top 5 records this year. "Southern Point" is probabably my favorite opener so far on a Grizzly Bear album.
