Dez 14 2009, 13h55 por calikaEssentially confirming what everyone else already knows are great records but hey can't be different all the time. No order as you should never compare music, it's not a race or competition. Hopefully there might be something here that you've never heard and it might prompt you to go check it out.
Hildur Gudnadóttir - Without Sinking At once abrasive, beautiful and delicate. if there was gonna be an album that stood out for me this year it would be without sinking.
Ben Frost - By The Throat Everyone knows how good this is so I won't bother saying again
Monolake - Silence Late entry, very very good.
Rameses III - I Could Not Love You More Beauty personified
Greg Davis - Midpoint He's always been a favourite of mine and midpoint was a really gorgeous release. More so than the kranky album
Bullion - Young Heartache EP Was this 2009, well it hit my radar in 2009 so that counts in my book.
Tortoise - Beacons Of Ancestorship A real return to form for me, cemented by a great show at the Festival hall.
Nov 25 2009, 0h07 por airfigaroI recently joined Rhapsody, mostly because I can't keep up with all the releases I want to listen to. So, here is the running list of 2009 albums that I have listened to via Rhapsody. The scrobbling method is a bit archaic, but it seems to be working. Lord knows I can't listen to music and not have it recorded here!

There is no ulterior motive for these journals. This is as honest and truthful as I can be. I am not a part of some online music publication or have any desire to stick to trends or include what is currently popular, unless I genuinely feel it deserves to be (waves at Pitchfork & NME fans). I am not some budding music journalist trying to entice people with a flouncy, 'know it all' attitude. If you agree with some of my choices then that's great! If you don't then that's great too. I mean, who cares anyway? It's just a bit of fun.
Please feel free to check back over the next couple of months to see the remaining entries. I will be updating each album entry with my own little review (the top 20 more substantially).
