i've already posted in the other thread, but what the heck. i like lists.

albums:
florence and the machine - lungs
the horrors - primary colours
atlas sound - logos
a place to bury strangers - exploding head

singles:
wild beasts - all the king's men (haven't actually heard the whole album yet, just a few tracks)
drums - let's go surfing
the big pink - velvet, too young to love (rest of the album is a bit too poptacular for me, but these are totally right up my alley. oooh walls of sound!)
richard hawley - for your lover, give some time

back to work, might remember more stuff later!

bruce peninsula - a mountain is a mouth
animal collective - merriweather post pavilion

The xx
Timbre Timbre


most of what is mentioned on the first page of ^this thread^ are easy to argue as standouts for 2009.

DOOM, Luke Vibert, Miike Snow, Phoenix,Wild Beasts.

Memory Tapes - Seek Magic
Animal Collective – Merriweather Post Pavilion

What an amazing year for music!

i like lists.
florence and the machine - lungs

Neon Indian - Psychic Chasms
The Lonely Island - Incredibad
Doves - Kingdom Of Rust
Mos Def - The Ecstatic

These are my highlights so far. Bold added for emphassis.

I would urge people to try and check out The Very Best - Warm Heart of Africa. The Very Best are making some of the most enjoyably infectious beats out there and I cant think of anything that compares.


a couple other songs i dug this year:

couldnt get behind everything on this disc, but Two Weeks is phenomenal!

I have a feeling these guys will be making waves

LOVE LOVE LOVE a few songs on this disc, but others cant hold my attention for even a few bars

Again, couple GREAT songs on this disc, but others = meh.
