At first you should know, that this is my PERSONAL list of the best music of the year 2009 (the top 30), based on my own opinion and impressions. Of course this is no DOGMA =)...really. Enjoy it and let me know your thoughts, suggestions and comments. But one you must notice, that you shouldn´t try to convert me.
So here it is: the art of music ! Take it or leave it ;-)
30. Native - Wrestling Moves
For all the lovers of These Arms Are Snakes which regret the end of this powerful and dynamic quartet: Here are some newcomer which could follow in TAAS´s footsteps. The vocal part is very similar, the songwriting isn´t still filed but after all Wrestling Moves reassures us for new coming records.
Last night I wrote a new fable based on the vigor of lions.
Last night I ate at the table and listened to stories of courage.
