Me too? Me too!
In some order.
Yeah Yeah Yeahs, It’s Blitz!
The Horrors, Primary Colours
The xx, xx
Fever Ray, Fever Ray
“When I Grow Up”
HEALTH, Get Color
Nosaj Thing, Drift
This video with Lunice still cracks me up / gets an eyebrow raise.
Pictureplane, Dark Rift
Mayer Hawthorne, A Strange Arrangement
“Green Eyed Love”
Converge, Axe to Fall
This album helped me through a tough phase at work. So good.
Simian Mobile Disco, Temporary Pleasure, “Audacity of Huge”
All Leather, Hung Like a Horse EP, “I Don’t Hate F**s, God Does”
I actually really, really REALLY love this band, but they put out an EP and that’s not really an album and blah blah blah I got all technical on this shit.
Fischerspooner, Entertainment, “Supply & Demand”
Bat For Lashes, Two Suns, “Daniel”
Natasha was my major crush for the first half of 2009.
Cold Cave, “Life Magazine”
Their best song, in my opinion. [Edit:] I got Love Comes Close a little too late to have it be a top album of the year, so, ah, yeah, fail on my part.
Au Revoir Simone, Still Night, Still Light, “Shadows”
Mika Miko, We Be Xuxa, “I Got A Lot (New New New)”
Man, I want to be in this band. But they fucking broke up. So lame. Love them.
MSTRKRFT, Fist of God, “It Ain’t Love” feat. Lil’ Mo
Wavves, Wavves, “California Goths”
Oh, THIS kid. Hype or not, this is a good album.
La Roux, La Roux, “In For the Kill”
Hype. Mad hype. But solid album, really fun girly vocal stuff.
Le gasp! Did I really post two songs with the word “goth” in them? What a surprise.
