Some More Great Tracks From the Year So Far...
Going through some of the blogspheres best of 2009 (so far) lists has only furthered my view that this has been a truly fantastic year in music - such a good one in fact, I have managed to overlook some unbelievable songs. One such song is by the brilliant Sufjan Stevens, "You are the Blood" LINK from the compilation album, Dark Was The Night. This album has been one of the highlights of the year so far with contributions from almost everyone that is relevant today in indie rock. Buy the whole thing as proceeds go to the Red Hot Organization which raises money and awareness for HIV and AIDS.
Here is the rest of the top 50 list where that Sufjan song sat at number 4 LINK. It is from Pretty Much Amazing (http://prettymuchamazing.com/), one of the best music blogs out there - you will notice (particularly on the top bunch) a bit of overlap with my list from last week. All of the tracks are available for full stream so a great chance to sample some of the best of the year.
#5 "Summertime Clothes" by Animal Collective (Merriweather Post Pavillion is sitting currently in my number 1 album of the year position and it would take a miracle or a Radiohead album to take it down from that spot before year end)
