End of 2009: 30 – 21
I planned on finishing this before tomorrow, but I’m having not enough time to do it like I did for numers 50 – 31. So, the next texts are gonna be shorter, very short. Just a sentence and a song. Hope you don’t mind.
What? Band rooted in indie country, but opening up to a whole array of genres
What? Clap Your Hands Say Yeah-man goes solo and ‘nasals’ his way to heavy pretention pop. (but not as heavy as his other project Flashy Python)
Alec Ounsworth – Wide Awake (one of my favourite songs ever, from unreleased early demos by Ounsworth)
What? Jason Molina grows a mustache and turns into a sad country-band.
What? Johnny Flynn’s american twin brother didn’t impress me with his debut, but this album is an emotional joyride.
What? Not sure if this hippie stuff deserves to be so high, but the song ‘Home’ deluded me, by becoming the song i listened to the most in 2009.
What? M. Ward keeps going. We keep listening.
What? Folky singer-songwriter makes a strong debut album and sounds timeless alltogether .
What? Ukelele is the sound to base your career on. And sounding like Bill Callahan who’s trying comedy.
What? Page France waves goodbye to indie brothers Death cab For Cutie and say hello to the sixties. Is that the Doors?
What? I hear a whistle in my ear, and a violin in my eye.
