Best of Music...2009: Top 10 Albums

Friday, December 18, 2009


My picks for album of the year...

1. Fever Ray "Fever Ray"- Karin and her eerie electro sound was downright genius (and a bit scary, not going to lie). I'll give her concert of the year as well. Her Webster Hall show was surreal.

Favorite Track(s): Dry and Dusty and Seven (honestly, I like them all just as much)


2. Phoenix "Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix"- The perfect band: Imported, great dressers and great musicians.

Favorite Track: 1901


3. Passion Pit "Manners"- These nerds really had us hooked in 2009 with their catchy songs, like Sleepyhead.

Favorite Track(s): Little Secrets and The Reeling


4. Yeah Yeah Yeah's "It's Blitz!"- Heads Will Roll was EPIC. None of us will ever be as cool as Karen O.

Favorite Track: Soft Shock


5. The XX "XX"- Simple, shy, yet elusive. A great, easy listen from start to finish.

Favorite Track: Heart Skipped a Beat


6. Arctic Monkeys "Humbug"- I just had to include them cause I love them too much. Plus, Alex Turner's accent when he sings is too sexy.

Favorite Track: Dangerous Animals


7. Animal Collective "Merriweather Post Pavilion"- This is what an acid trip probably feels like.

Favorite Track: My Girls


8. Dan Auerbach "Keep it Hid"- This guy is a force to be reckon with when it comes to the guitar. Bluesy rock at its finest.

Favorite Track: Heartbroken, In Disrepair


9. Kid CuDi "Man on the Moon"- This kid is the shit. Kudos on collaborating with "indie" artists such as MGMT and Ratatat.

Favorite Track: CuDi Zone



10. Lady Gaga "The Fame Monster"- It's Gaga. She is the pop artist of the year. She is amazing. Period.

Favorite Track: Alejandro
