James Blackshaw - The Glass Bead Game
Will there be a better record this year? I doubt it,... (I just LOVE everything James Blackshaw does!)
Black To Comm - Alphabet 1968
Great record, hopefully the record gets the attention it deserves!
Ilyas Ahmed - Goner
How to play the blues in 2009, excellent record.
Group Bombino - Guitars from Agadez, Vol. 2
Amazing, groovy record to play all day long!
The xx - The XX
It's hyped, but it's good, very good. Sparse but elegant with beautiful boy/girl-vocals. Top-record.
Soap&Skin - Lovetune For Vacuum
