2009 In Music

Songs are based on how much I listened to and enjoyed. Albums are based on enjoyment and absence of filler tracks. Albums that fit that criteria were few and far between ;)

But first...a disclaimer...

I'm not indie-cool anymore because I do NOT like:
Animal Collective
Dirty Projectors
Bon Iver
Fever Ray

Top 5 Albums (in alphabetical because I am lazy):
Franz Ferdinand - Tonight: Franz Ferdinand
Grizzly Bear - Veckatimest
Kasabian - The West Rider Pauper Lunatic Asylum
Phoenix - Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix
Tap Tap - On My Way

Honorable Mention:
Julian Casablancas - Phrazes For The Young
