Dig Out Your Soul. Only listened twice but New Travis album is short, but quite sweet.

Bloc Party's Intimacy has some real growers (Ares, Better Than Heaven), but it's only been 90% released to date hasn't it, with all this wank about bonus tracks on the physical edition?

Viva La Vida or Death And All His Friends is quite marvellous. Lost! is song of the year...

Kaiser Chiefs, The Killers, Eskimo Joe, Keane to come....and am yet to hear the new Josh Pyke LP which has just been released.

U2 might spring a surprise digital release, as might Morrissey.

I'll try to get some semblance of an order:

1. TV on the Radio - Dear Science,
2. My Morning Jacket - Evil Urges
3. Fleet Foxes - Fleet Foxes
4. Lisa Hannigan - Sea Sew
5. Okkervil River - The Stand Ins
6. Bon Iver - For Emma, Forever Ago
7. Shearwater - Rook
8. Sigur Ros - Med Sud Blah Blah Blah Endalaust
9. Man Man - Rabbit Habits
10. Hercules and Love Affair - Hercules and Love Affair


Something like that ought to be fine.

I believe I've only listened to two albums that came out this year: Hold on Now, Youngster... and Viva la Vida or Death and All His Friends. But I like them both, especially the former.

Your love of The Clash makes up for it, Philly.

I will have to take portions of these lists into consideration, though. My edumacation continues.

1. Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds - Dig, Lazarus, Dig!!!
2. Bloc Party - Intimacy
3. TV on the Radio - Dear Science
4. Cut Copy - In Ghost Colours
5. Portishead - Third
6. Coldplay - Vivalavida
7. R.E.M. - Accelerate
8. M83 - Saturdays=Youth
9. Vampire Weekend
10. Death Cab For Cutie - Narrow Stairs.

Haven't listened to the new Okkervil River or Metallica enough yet to rank them.
Weezer and The Hold Steady would also get honorable mentions.

Should Okkervil River be something I look into? I've seen some support for them here.

Yes, but not this album (it's not even an album, it's an appendix to last year's The Stage Names). I'd say Black Sheep Boy, The Stage Names, or Don't Fall In Love With Everyone You See are far better introductions and albums in general.

Okkervil River are essentially my favorite and most listened to band of the last 3 years or so.

Not much in the way of order, here. It wasn't any trouble coming up with enough records to fill out this list, but that doesn't really mean that I've been, like, swamped with spectacular albums--rather, I think that, this year, I've discovered fewer good albums than in recent years past. At the same time, though, I have discovered a disproportionately large(r) number of records which I love so much as to prefer them to a good piece of ass (or tail, if you will). The >ass records are emboldened.

Los Campesinos!: Hold On Now, Youngster...
Los Campesinos!: We Are Beautiful, We Are Doomed


Kingdom Shore: ...And All The Dogs To Shark (this record is ferociously unlike most anything you've heard--it sounds superhuman, terrifying, and disquieting...when it can be bothered, it also ejaculates a moment or two of beauty...the only legitimate MUST BE HEARD record of the year, although it's not necessarily one of my >ass records)

The Hold Steady: Stay Positive
The Mae Shi: HLLLYH
Johnny Foreigner: Waited Up Till It Was Light

Xiu Xiu: Women As Lovers
Ruby Suns: Sea Lion
No Age: Nouns
The Loved Ones: Build & Burn
Josh Goldberg: Double Murder Suicide
Times New Viking: Rip It Off
Raphael Saadiq: The Way I See It
Ponytail: Ice Cream Spiritual
Neon Neon: Stainless Style
TV On The Radio: Dear Science, (gotta be the biggest surprise of the year, for me...maybe with the exception of that record by The Loved Ones, which I was more than prepared to despise)
Fuck Buttons: Street Horrrsing
Frightened Rabbit: The Midnight Organ Fight
Titus Andronicus: The Airing of Grievances
David Byrne + Brian Eno: Everything That Happens Will Happen Today

I am definitely forgetting a few keepers, though. Can't be bothered to sift around and through everything to remember 'em, though. Whatever. In foregone conclusion, I'm a sniffling indie kid. C'est la vie.

Also, I'm surprised and pleased than in a year which has seen me listen to a lot more new-to-me "old" music than new-to-me 2008 music, I have been able to enjoy quite thoroughly at least 20 solid records. I went through the process of falling in love with largely pre-dub reggae, from about April to August, this year, and while acquiring those 50 or so records and compilations (everything from the Black Ark-produced Slickers record, Break Through [which sucks, BTW, and dubs out the formerly perfect "Johnny Too Bad"] to early, gorgeous, religious field recordings to a jaw-dropping Uniques cover of "Crimson and Clover"), I wasn't paying as much attention to new stuff as I might've in a more typical year. In spite of that, it's been a good time, all 'round. Lots of good stuff, for me.

Good to see R.E.M. back mentioned a lot for best album of the year. Accelerate is one of my fave's as well.

I'd put Kings Of Leon new album up there as well. I really like it. Hope the Killers and Snow Patrol albums are good as well.
