The delicious 2009! [so far]

Well, ok. I've officially scared myself. But it doesn't mean I'm gonna stop listening to Andrew Bird! No way! :D

So as I always fail with making 'the best of...' lists at the end of the year, I've decided to make one right now. I haven't checked so many albums yet, so please forgive me.
Btw, I've spent week on discovering cool albums from 2008... it's a shame that I've missed so much of them.

15.Emmy the Great - First Love
It's not that I don't like her or something. She just does not move me... and the album versions of demos are mostly spoiled. Or I have to give her another try... or not.

14.John Parish and Polly Jean Harvey - A Woman A Man Walked By
Despite of beautiful artwork I just can't get into this one. Maybe I'm just an immature listener or something.

13.Lily Allen - It's Not Me, It's You
Again, I quite enjoyed new Lily and thanks to my friends she will always remind me of nice May afternoons <3 I only got a bit tired of her.

12.Yeah Yeah Yeahs - It's Blitz!
A really nice one. "Hysteric" is fabulous.

11.Doves - Kingdom Of Rust
Epic. The title track makes me wanna run.

10.Mando Diao - Give Me Fire
Rooooocks a lot :DDDD

9.Fanfarlo - Reservoir [I still cannot write this name properly]
Pretty nice indie thing, shiny and perfect for spring :) And Sigurros on cover art! yay!

8.Bat for Lashes - Two Suns
Yes, Natasha is still kinda insane.

7.The BPA - I Think We're Gonna Need a Bigger Boat
I LOVE COLLABS, fine? This is a brilliant one. Thanks Norman for getting Jamie T and making he do something!

6.Kamp! - Thales One EP
I know it's just an EP, but who cares? God bless good Polish bands.

5.Beirut - March of the Zapotec/Holland EP
Another EP. Lovely one. I mean Holland messed up my mind a bit. But both parts move me as well musically and lyrically.

ew I don't know how to tag it, so
Again, compilation CD. Fabulous. I prefer the This Disc, but That Disc is also worth checking [Beirut, Arcade Fire, Andrew Bird, Spoon, Riceboys Sleeps (!!!), Blonde Redhead]...

3.Patrick Wolf - The Bachelor
So so so so good. Best work of Patrick so far. Love the vocals, sound so clean but still have the old expression [mostly anger, eh]. This album is blue and turqoise. Perfect for long trips in a rainy day :))

2.Andrew Bird - Noble Beast / Useless Creatures [ok says such albums do not exist, but don't believe it]
I don't even know which one is better. Andrew is just genius. Words are useless.

1.Animal Collective - Merriweather Post Pavilion
THIS ALBUM IS FUCKING AMAZIN'. The best thing I've heard since their last album XD nah, just kidding. Really enchanted me. And shocked. And so on. And Animals are definitely my favourite band this year. Rrrrrrrrr!

Again, I cannot express myself. I'm simply too tired.
And got more CDs to try.
But two first places won't change, I suppose.
No, they definitely won't :)

    1125 Andrew Bird listens? Dear god. And I thought I was solid with 269 Patrick Wolf listens in one week sometime last year. I agree with you on Animal Collective though. I started listening to it a couple of weeks back. Fantastic album. c:

    Well,you make me wanna try and listen to Lily again. Emmy's album izho is good at parts but the charm of the good old demos has disappeared,for all my grief -___- New Maximo Park's album is kinda nice. The singles can be a bit discouraging,though. Dear thing,I've cut my hair XD

    @WillFry-> I just couldn't resist. I was under a great impression after His gig, that's why ;) Patrick Wolf is a good thing to listen maniacally, anyway. Glad that you enjoy MPP :D @Heath-> you know, I've discovered that Laura's! EPs and demos were better than her whole album. It's nice, obviously, but there are some track that should be replaced with New Romantic for example :> the charm of demos, yes. I like Maximo Park's singles :) NEW KASABIAN TO GO. I know you will not share my excitement :P Whaaaaaaaa? >__< But then you cut your hair and it ended there :P I may work in a radio station during the holidays, how coll is that.

    Wraithlike,yes,likeable,funny hooks,but The Kids are a bit...insipid?OK,never mind,my taste is really not sophistiated if I listen to The Teenagers not sqeeking with anger :P For me,Laura's album is an incarnation of perfection (how pathetic am I? XD) and I love it as whole,but I think You're No God would be better as a b-side or something. I cut them,they aren't so short but a change is obvious :D Coll? Flyppin coll,I suppose :D

    coll, ahaha XDDD I was in a hurry ^^" The Kids are sick, that's right, but I like them ;) Paul's voice is so soft... yes, definitely like this one. Anyone who sings in French deserves a try :) Yes I thought it was perfect, but as time passes I find new things... some tracks just don't fit. The Captain And The Hourglass, wtf? I mean, the songs themselves are fine, but if you listen to whole thing something is not right. Ow, Your Only Doll is one big mistake. [I don't mean the Alas part, obviously ;)]

    both Doves and Lily Allen's albums are gooooood,Patrick's one is also nice,though I'm not a huge fan,but I've heard some

    Yeah, I guess now I like Lily's CD even more :) but my top 5 has changed completely, Patrick's not number 3 anymore.
