I'm bored and all buzzzzed up on coffee and vicodin. 

Yes, I know it's a great combo.

 

My faves (so far): 

 

In no order with the exception of Arcade Fire

 

1. Arcade Fire - The Suburbs

I highly doubt anything else is going to top this record for me. I'm madly in love with this album. 

 

2. Wavves - King Of The Beach

Recording a clean record and staying away from the extreme lo-fi sound is the best thing this band could of done. Catchy as fuck.

 

3. Beach House - Teen Dream

Came out earlier this year, but i'm still enjoying it.

 

4. Sun Kil Moon - Admiral Fell Promises

I still think Mark Kozelek released this record because he wanted to show off his guitar skills (which he most certainly has).

 

5. Toro Y Moi - Causers Of This

"Low Shoulder" is my fucking JAM.

 

6. Best Coast - Crazy For You

This record is like one big song, but I love it. So much fun.

By far  the most indecisive lyrics iv'e ever heard. 

 

 

Records I need to give a few more spins:

Broken Social Scene

The National

Yeasayer

Fang Island

Sufjan Stevens (ep)

Deer Tick

 

Disappointing records:

Interpol - Their sound...eh, I've grown tired of it. 

 

Records I'm looking forward to:

Panda Bear

Avey Tare 

Sufjan Stevens (lp)

 

I know i'm leaving a bunch of stuff out, but they'll come to me in a day or two.

Kozelek's new stuff makes me real sad, for some reason--and not in the way his stuff usually does. I saw him perform last month, and he played almost exclusively off of AFP (i.e. no strumming, except for a mightily appreciated rendition of "All Mixed Up"). Hard to top April for me, though.

I'll just say that Curren$y's Pilot Talk is one of the more concise, cohesive, and enjoyable albums of the year. Very little fluff. Perfect production. Great guests. What more do you need?

@dkolitz Yeah I was there! Up in the balcony close to the stage, jaw agape, the ice in my Jameson on the rocks melting as I watched in awe. I nearly freaked out when he played "Duk Koo Kim". Prefix in da buildin!

Been working on this list, bottom of my top 10 changes constantly, but so far Contra, King of The Beach, and Treats are the clear cut top 3 (have yet to give proper attn' to new Arcade Fire; like AnCo last year, I wait a couple of months for that kind of hype to die down).

 

Otherwise it's a crap shoot between:

Of The Blue Colour of the Sky

Ya-Ka-May

Brothers

IRM

Greenberg Soundtrack

The Monitor

Stuck on Nothing

Reasons (Red Pens)

Plastic Beach

Transcontinental Hustle

Shame, Shame

Invisible Violence

 

There's still a ton that could force it's way on here, though (and like I said, still haven't given proper attention to a bunch of things I'd generally like).

 

Songs is gonna be a fun, weird list for me. Last year I picked some things I thought would be more popular in P & J but I ended up being the only one voting for (Morrissey, Black Lips, Mew, Titus Andronicus): http://www.villagevoice.com/pazznjop/critics/2009/763217/

Big KRIT - KRIT Wuz Here

Best Coast - Crazy For You

Ariel Pink - Before Today

Tallest Man on Eath - Wild Hunt

I keep waiting for High Violet to fade for me, but I saw those dudes on Monday and that shit isn't going anywhere. Great record.

 

Other greats:

 

Superchunk - Majesty Shredding

Women - Public Strain

Roots - How I Got Over

Sharon Van Etten  - epic

Phosphorescent - Here's to Taking It Easy

Walkmen - Lisbon

 

I'm sure there's more, I'm blanking. That's a good enough start.
