the album begins to trail off a bit for me towards the middle but Hot Soft Light is probably my most played song this year, so for that i have to give it credit.  but you cant list Apples In Stereo cause thats an 07 release!

I think I'm getting more into this. I hope to like it as much as Roomsound and Quicksand Cradlesnakes here soon.

Quote from: polkablues
Nellie McKay - Pretty Little Head

I found this album to be tragically disappointing, compared to her first.

Not as good as her first, for sure, but far from disappointing.


Here's a few more I forgot the first time around:

Keane - Under the Iron Sea
Placebo - Meds
Gus Black - Autumn Days

And the "One great song amidst a sea of mediocrity" award goes to... Augustana, for "Bullets".
Now you're in the *spoiler* place.

7 - Islands - Return to the Sea

Finally! Someone acknowledges this awesome CD
“The myth by no means finds its adequate objectification in the spoken word. The structure of the scenes and the visible imagery reveal a deeper wisdom than the poet himself is able to put into words and concepts” – Friedrich Nietzsche

i'm a little overwhelmed and depressed after reading the "best of" lists floating around on the internet.  i thought i stayed on top of everything that i wanted to this year, but after downloading some of the "best songs of the year" at various hipster blog spots i found that i missed a lot that i probably would have enjoyed.  peter bjorn and john's "young folks" is on constant repeat right now.  i just wish i got there earlier.  here's my list, i guess:

1.  joanna newsom - ys
2.  destroyer - rubies
3.  final fantasy - he poos clouds
4.  sunset ruddown - shut up i am dreaming
5.  suburban kids with biblical names - #3
6.  belle and sebastian - the life pursuit
7.  camera obscura - let's get out of this country
8.  the decemberists - the crane wife
9.  oh no! oh my! - oh no! oh my!
10.  ramona cordova - the boy who floated freely

It still hasn't surpassed Roomsound or Heron King Blues to me, but that doesn't mean it's a bad album.  It's still pretty solid.

Also, Cornelius' "Sensuous" weaves in and out of my list, up and down in an endless spiral.

I just picked up Bonnie Prince Billy's The Letting Go, and I think it's really beautiful. Probably my second favorite new thing I've heard so far this year, after Ys.

I also got the new Yeah Yeah Yeahs album, finally, and I really like it a lot, although not enough to put it on a list.

I also bought Scott Walker's The Drift. I'm trying to get into it, but I'm having a lot of trouble so far. But I've seen it on a lot of other year end lists, so I'm going to keep listening...

The Aggrolites -- The Aggrolites

I saw them open for the Aquabats, but I caught them midset.  They still put on quite a show.
