Best Albums of 2009

I end every year by making a list of my favorite albums. Some years there are as many as 30 albums that I couldn’t live without, but this year there were really only 10 for me. To be honest, the David Bazan and Fever Ray releases really monopolized a lot of my time. But there are some beautiful songs on all of the following ten, and I think a few of them are growers that I’ll enjoy even more next year…



1. David Bazan – Curse Your Branches



2. Fever Ray – Fever Ray



3. The Antlers – Hospice



4. Robert Gomez – Pine Sticks & Phosphorus




5. Wilco – Wilco (The Album)



6. Kings of Convenience – Declaration of Dependence



7. Klum – We Carelessly Turned Amazingly Into Nothing



8. Devendra Banhart – What Will We Be



9. Bill Callahan – Sometimes I Wish We Were An Eagle




10. Andrew Bird – Noble Beast
