12. Feb. 2010, 23:12 von funkayyWell, it had taken me awhile to sift through all 250ish of the albums I heard in 2009, after listening to them again and again, rearranging like nobody's business... and then my Mac needed to be fixed slash I was lazy, sooo... better late than never, I suppose.
Top 50 Albums:
1. Fever Ray - Fever Ray
The top spot goes to an artist I feel truly captured all stages of an album, from the cohesive concept and sounds, to the quality music videos that elevated songs to new levels, and to what would've been an amazing live show if I didn't miss it (ha). Karin moved me this year so much that I own a digital copy, the LP, and the deluxe edition CD (which includes a live recording).
2. Animal Collective - Merriweather Post Pavilion
There's no question about it: Animal Collective is my favorite contemporary band and this album is quite possibly the most inspired pop record made in recent times. Why isn't MPP at number 1, then? I just don't think it is their best work as a group. …
14. Dez. 2009, 21:47 von warrenwheelThis year, particularly in music, was an odd year for me. The first half of the year was dominated by electronic music, whether it be electro-rock, airy dream-pop tunes, or retro lo-fi synth-pop. I finally attended the Ultra Music Festival after years of wishing that I could go. The festival was a great time and Miami is a fantastic city. The second half of the year involved a major shift to indie rock, freak folk, shoegaze, and post rock. While I still listened to electronic-influenced music, it was mostly combined with indie elements. This shift was likely a result of getting a radio playlist show on Indiespot on Metaphoric (check out my main page for information), which has me consistently looking for brand new alternative and indie tunes and artists. Fun times…but without further ado, here is my 2009 Year in Review.
To make the top albums list somewhat easier for myself, I’m going to split my list into an overall top list and a more electronic-focused list. It seems to be the only way I can manage to figure this out. …
