Top 10 Albums 2009!

New Music | Top 10 Albums 2009

Alas, dear friends, for I fear little Phoenix may have squeezed into the mainstream. And Animal Collective? Really? Maybe we're safe for another year, I don't know. Anyway bonjour and welcome to le top 10 for 2009 as dictated by NMB. No Grizzly Bear, no thanks. No Kasabian, no thanks. Just pure 2009 style quality, a vintage year that competes strongly with 2008

  1. Phoenix - Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix
  2. Passion Pit - Manners
  3. Deadmau5 - For Lack of a Better Name
  4. Animal Collective - Merriweather Post Pavillion
  5. DM Stith - Heavy Ghost
  6. Neon Indian - Psychic Chasms
  7. Sally Shapiro - My Guilty Pleasure
  8. St Vincent - Actor
  9. Au Revoir Simone - Still Night, Still Light
  10. The Thermals - Now We Can See

And best music related video has to (by so far it's not even really fair) go to Spike Jonze and Kanye. Congratulations?

The Thermals - Now We Can See

New Music | The ThermalsIf my band were to defect from Sub Pop (not that I have a band, and not that Sub Pop would have me if I did have a band), I'd go to Kill Rock Stars just like these guys have. Or maybe Hut, like the Pumpkins did back in the day, but then that's not really the same these days. Apparently we have to wait til April to hear the rest of the album. Yeah, April. Now We Can See on repeat it is then - that's an easy 6 week playlist.
