My albums of 2009

After as little deliberation as humanly possible (trying to do it off the top of my head), my top 6 albums of 2009:

1. Yeah Yeah Yeahs – Its Blitz!
2. Bat for Lashes – Two Suns
3. The XX – the XX
4. Wild Beasts – Two Dancers
5. the Dark Was the Night compilation
6. Mumford and Sons – Sigh No More

What were your albums/songs of the year?

Because I like doing this kind of thing, I’ve made a playlist with songs from these albums plus other choice picks from 2009. I was going to give 5 cd copies away, but turns out that this is illegal because of copyright! Thanks to Katrina for telling me. So many apologies to everyone who entered the giveaway already! I think there are programmes that will at least let me stream the playlist, so I’ll look into that soon. Sorry guys!

    Oh, I want one!
    I adore the Yeah Yeah Yeahs! It's Blitz is definitely in my top. As is Jenny Lewis – Acid Tongue and the Juno soundtrack.

    Oh I'm rubbish this year ref music as I had my head in books I kept listening to the same old Cafe de Mer cd over and over again – it soothed me!
    I need your cd to update me again.

    Oh I need to get more up to date with music *is embaressed at complete ignorance*
    I like musicals and things.
    If I was so lucky as to win it would certainly broaden my music knowledge!

    I'd add Grizzly Bear – Beckatimest and Pheonix – Wolfgang Amadeus Pheonix

    No probs about the cd (you've sent so many things to Australia for me anyways!) but if you post your playlist, I'll make it on my itunes!

    YAY xoxo

    Well, I'm not one who buys many new albums. I listen a lot of stuff on last.fm, and often buy or download older albums from artists I found there. But when I boil it down I think my top albums of the year are:

    Bloc Party – Intimacy
    Gossip – Music for Men
    Florence and the Machine – Lungs

    and favorite songs:
    Muse – Uprising
    Florence and the Machine – Drumming Song
    Gossip – 2012

    Of course I'd like a cd – it's always inspiring what others listen to. Do you have a last.fm account btw? Mine is http://www.lastfm.de/user/Kasmeneo.
