An inside Out Sock continues (and ends) his list: 20 – 1
I’m gonna keep it as short as the previous ones, just because it’s already the 7th of January. I should be listening to 500 2010 records right now! I promised myself I’d provide more regular updates, maybe in a different form than I used to. Oh, and I’ll finish my unknown bands from last decade list. Eventually.
What? The New New Folk movement, 2011 (mark my words)
What? Woman + Man = Music with a Romantic Folk-feel
18. Adam Lipman – From Your Mouth To God’s Ears (Shrimper Records)
What? Mumble like a singer and make the best mumble-record of the year. Thanksgiving, anyone? (Does Shrimper Records even have a website?)
What? No Leonard Cohen for me, I want Adrian Crowley! (that rhymes!)
Damn, his songs aren’t on my hard disk. Soooooo, you’ll have to do with a movieclip for now (maybe I’ll replace it later this week)
What? Little Brothey of Animal Collective goes from childhood to puberty and get high on tranquilizers.
What? Folk singer girl sings girl folk songs.
What? Finally recognition for this wooden cabin blues
What? What? again Wooden CAbin Blues?! God you have a boring, non-diverse taste!
(PS: you can download his earlier albums for free on the collective family )
12. Alexi Murdoch – Towards The Sun (EP) (Zero Summer Records or Self-released?)
What? The only real bastard child of Nick Drake
11. Dan Mangan – Nice, Nice, Very Nice (Some Major Label?)
What? Well, we all know you love singer-songwriters, but why another one? answer: because this one goes straight to the heart.
What? Cry-baby makes cry-babyalbum. We’re emotional kids. And we love songs about pirates.
What? No number 1, but it bounces and it’s Beach Boys and it’s Funky, and it’s wooooohooee acid!
No songs, cause you can find them at mullllltiple other places. (and I’m tired of uploading songs)
8. Mumford and Sons – Sigh No More ( Island Records)
What? Not as good as the EP’s – too well-produced and less intense – but still one of the big bands of 2009.
No song either, becuase big label and we hate them. booooh!
7. Knots – The Blistering Sun, The Pale Moon, Hahahahaha ( Self-released)
What? Guy makes album in his bedroom and makes emotional emotions singable
What? soundtrack for the Wickerman (scary pagan folk)
What? Man with weird voice does it again. (and will keep on doing it for next 23 years)
What? Cover album with a great feel. And you don’t have to learn the lyrics, cause you already know them!
(is there anyone who can tell me who Meyercord is? Very curious to the original)
What? Break-up albums tend to be the beginning of the end. Let’s hope not (though this puts the standard quite high)
What? The album that gave me the best summer feel this year, and made me singalong the most
What? Neutral Milk Hotel, No Age and Chad Vangaalen made a baby, and the baby was butt-ugly and totally free.
The Emotional Record of the year. In 2009 we got hit by 100.000 of indie noise pop things, and quite franktly we grew tired of it. But then there was Bradne J. McKenna. He happened to be on my hard drive for a couple of years, but this stuff is muchos grandos compared to the early songs I have. This hit me in the stomach, left me bleeding to death and then reanimated me. You can download Navigator’s album totally for free through their label, which makes this year the total fuck you to major labels. Thank you Braden J. McKenna.
