So much has happened in between. Many good things and some bad things, but always there was music. Great music.
For the magazine I had to limit myself to three records, but here I'd like to list twelve records that for me personally capture the decade between 2000 and 2010, musically. These are not necessarily what I consider the best records of the decade, but they are the ones that I love most.
In alphabetical order:
The Decemberists - Picaresque (2005)
Kathleen Edwards - Failer (2003)
Laïs - Douce Victime (2004)
Matchbox Twenty - Mad Season (2000)
Jason Mraz - Waiting for My Rocket to Come (2002)
Joanna Newsom - Ys (2006)
Beth Orton - Daybreaker (2002)
Josh Rouse - Nashville (2005)

3 Aug 2008, 22:59 by andythesaintThis is a list exercise that has made the blog rounds of late. I discovered it via Steve Hyden of the AV Club Blog, who in turn picked it up from Idolator. The premise is simple: list your favourite album for every year you've been alive.
There's a couple different ways to go about this, with the most obvious being choosing what your favourite album from a given year is now, but a different way would be to try and recollect what your favourite album was then (at least for years where you were old enough to have an opinion). I'm choosing the favourite album now way to go, since I think it's more interesting posting opinions I can defend now, as opposed to ones where I can just say "what do you want from me; I was a kid". That said, in years where I didn't have a strong favourite, or needed a tiebreaker, I chose albums that defined the year for me at the time.
So here's the list, with some thoughts about how it all shaped up to follow:
1977: Television - Marquee Moon
1978: Ramones - Road to Ruin

10 Feb 2007, 19:50 by KuutarI shamelessly stole this one from some journal (don’t even remember where...), since I thought this could be quite nice to do, ‘cause I’m obsessed with female singers. I mean really obsessed!
1. They have to be female (pretty obvious...)
2. They have to be different in some way (well, this is actually my own subjective view mostly)
3. Have to have memorable voices (again subjective...)
4. I have to have heard more than one song by them
They’re in alphabetical order, just because.
I really hope I didn't forget anyone. And I want to discover new (to me) female singers all the time, so feel free to recommend me ones that are missing here, but you think I should listen to. I'll be updating this whenever I discover new singer(s).
Favourite song: Red Vines
Favourite album: Lost in Space
Favourite song: Whiskey Lullaby
Alison Goldfrapp (Goldfrapp)
Favourite song: Ooh La La
Favourite album: Supernature
