2009 was quite a year. A lot happened in the world, in my life, and in music. In theory, those all seem like distinct things - but retrospectively, they can be hard to differentiate from one another. Events blur together, timelines become jumbled, memories get obscured by the haze of passing time; memories of how I felt, memories of people I know (or knew), and memories of the music that soundtracked it all. Most people seem content to simply let these things slip into the past, marching merrily into the future, but I'm never able to fully let go, it seems, and this process of archiving my favorite albums of the year reflects that in a big way.
When I look back at this list in the year(s) to come, I'm not going to see an objective list of the best albums of 2009; I'm not even going to see a list I agree with anymore. …

Ago 1 2007, 19h47 por DrAlexHaleIIITue 5 Jun – Guster, Luke Temple
I first heard of Guster when I was downloading rare and unreleased Ben Folds tracks, though I was not aware that they were a band; the track was titled "All the Way Up to Heaven (with Guster)" - leading me to believe that "Guster" was some sort of semi-casual musical term (e.g. "Once more... with feeling!"). I admit that this was an incredibly stupid mistake to make and one that I shall regret to my dying day. I later found out that they were a BAND, and one that a friend of mine recommended, too. This must've been around Summer 2005 as I purchased their third album - "Lost and Gone Forever" from the Virgin Megastore in New York. I think it was the first CD from that trip that I played, and the first track - "What You Wish For" - instantly spoke to me. I was somewhat concerned, actually, as, when I removed it from its' case, I noticed a HUGE chunk missing from the CD. …

(This review was originally written as part of my monthly gig blog for Myspace, but, due to problems with Myspace - the problems being that Myspace is shit - I was unable to post said blog and have decided to relocate here)
Duke Special is one of Ireland's best musicians. Sporting a physical appearance not unlike The Cure's Robert Smith (I'm sure I've said this before - credit goes to Quincy for identifying that particular similarity, though) and a voice not unlike an Irish Rufus Wainwright, I first heard of the Duke when he supported The Divine Comedy on tour in October 2006; I didn't attend any of these shows (the nearest was at Warwick, my parents were away and I had seen TDC in concert a few months prior), but my darling ladyfriend Carolyn attended their show in her home province of Belgium and had good things to say about the chap. …
Out 31 2006, 7h20 por ABJonesI really have no idea what to say about Roman Candle but the only word that comes to my mind is addicting. This is a band that recorded two versions of the same record. All same songs, essentially the same record just one more striped down, one more polished. Says Pop was the first released in 2002 and like the name says basic pop. The Wee Hours Revue released earlier this year has more prominent electric guitar and country sound to it. The question is can two of the same records can hold out. The phrase why fix what’s not broken comes to mind. But amazingly these two CDs can hold out on there own both equally.
If you get PASTE they have one of there songs on the sampler cd if not you should check out there Myspace and Website.
