Best Music of 2009


The xx - xx
My album of 2009

This was a tough year for me to compile a list. Although, as always, there was great music released this year, I found myself mostly buying older stuff. In fact, my discovery of the year was probably Delta 5, who made music from 1979-1981. That being said, I’ll rank every complete album and EP I bought this year (a few physically, most through eMusic. Entries marked with asterisks were downloaded either free or at a significant discount (ie. the Fanfarlo album was given away for $1)

  1. The xx – xx
  2. Handsome Furs – Face Control
  3. múm – Sing Along to Songs You Don’t Know
  4. Years – Years
  5. The Raveonettes – In and Out of Control
  6. Fanfarlo – Reservoir*
  7. Jarvis Cocker – Further Complications
  8. Wilco – Wilco (the album)
  9. Metric – Fantasies

Not ranked because I haven’t listened to them enough:

  • Timber Timbre – Timber Timbre*
  • Do Make Say Think – Other Truths
  • The Joy Formidable – A Balloon Called Moaning*

I thought I’d rank EPs separately:

  1. Ume – Sunshower
  2. Suburban Kids with Biblical Names – #4

Here are some of the “pro’s” lists:

How about you? What were some of your favourites?
