2009 Releases

January 7, 2010 - By

I feel that last year I was slightly less in touch with music than normal.

This may be largely in part to not living in my own place for the last quarter (and thus going really gently on the Internet bandwidth). My last.fm account shows me listening to comforting and familiar songs over the last 12 months, and so I don’t really have ten albums listed in my top ten; even when I went easy on myself and allowed older albums in.

I love getting retrospective and making lists; and I especially benefit from other lists. Pitchfork does an annual wrap up where I generally discover something awesome that I missed. The best find so far is a band from the UK called The xx. If you feel like I’m missing something else comment me up, and drop a link for streaming.
