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
