17 Dec 2009, 17:43 by no_conclusionHere's the list of some of our favorite EPs and singles of 2009. Yes, we've listed probably everything that Bethany Consetino released this year, but we feel it's fully deserved as she has really stood out in this year's wave of summery lo-fi music and we're anxious to see what she's going to do next. Speaking of Californian ladies we liked this year, San Francisco's Tamaryn and L.A. based Glasser are two interesting vocalists worth noting.
On the other side of the spectrum (and the ocean), dubstep has seen a real boom. Now, whether there really is a "dubstep revival" going on or is it just that the American media are finally catching up is up for debate, but one thing's certain - this was a good year for dubstep. Besides the superb 5 Years of Hyperdub compilation featuring some of the scene's most promising artists such as Darkstar, King Midas Sound, Joker, Zomby, Martyn and others, we also had the EPs from newcomers Mount Kimbie and Joy Orbison on heavy rotation.

Tamaryn, the San Francisco based vocalist, already has a couple of 7"s and an EP under her belt. Her music is absolutely gorgeous and I've no idea how I'm only hearing about it now. It's dark yet dreamy, containing elements of shoegaze, goth and pop, and the vocals are simply stunning calling to mind both Siouxie Sioux and Cocteau Twins.
