I can't do favorite song lists anymore. I just can't. I have lost the ability to properly discern tracks in that way.

Neither can I. I'm too album-oriented to differentiate between songs anymore.

They're a heavy, bluesy rock band with Jack White on drums, some dude from Queens of the Stone Age on guitar, and the ultra sexy Alison Mosshart on vocals. They kick ass.

It's not The White Stripes ... it's not the Raconteurs ... it's The Dead Weather!

Yeah, what GAF said. It's like if he played in a full band, only this time the band has a keyboard that can play synthesizer or organ sounds. And the lead vocalist is a hot, talented girl.

I'd probably just end up listing way too many tracks, as I'd feel like I'd need to include my favorites from every album I got in 2009.

I just realized I didn't include Royksopp's This Must Be It in my favorite songs of 2009. It came up on random and I forgot how much I dig it.

I don't remember that album much, I just remember not liking it as much as I wanted to at the time. I loved their first two albums though, so I need to give it another shot. I'll listen to that song right now.

Same - the album as a whole didn't hold up for me, but The Girl With The Robot and This Must Be It are standouts.

Supposedly they are releasing a companion album this year called Senior which is more on the slow side.

I've seriously listened to that song 4 or 5 times since you mentioned it yesterday, I love it! Not sure how I missed it before. Is that Karin Dreijer Andersson from The Knife / Fever Ray on vocals? Glad you mentioned it.

It is indeed Karin Dreijer Andersson. She's also on another track, Tricky Tricky.

I was inspired enough to take a listen to the entire album this morning, and it's actually quite solid, now that I really took the time to listen to it. The aforementioned songs from my other post are still by far the high points, but overall, this album is better than I remember.

I love that album. And Tricky Tricky - isn't that the one with the line "6 afraid of 7, 'cause 7 8 9!"

The Girl and the Robot is my favorite on the album - I Robyn. I wish she'd hurry up and put out a new album.
