Some records I liked that (I think) came out in 2009.
Pagan Wanderer Lu – Fight my Battles for me
But of course!
Alela Diane – To Be Still
Discovered by me, I seem to recall, via a tweet from Spillers Records. Lovely. Was lucky enough to see her at The Gate in September.
Dent May & His Magnificent Ukelele – The Good Feeling Music of Dent May & His Magnificent Ukelele
Saw him support Animal Collective earlier in the year, and again at Green Man. Things for which I have a soft spot #1 – a falsetto.
The Laurie Records Story , Vol. 3: Girls and Girl Groups
One listen of The Chiffons – Stop, Look and Listen and it’s in my head for days. Things for which I have a soft spot #2 – old death discs. Great car crash sound effects in Reparata’s Your Life is Gone!
Grizzly Bear – Veckatimest
One of my highlights of Green Man.
The Girls Are At It Again – UK Beat Girls 1964-1969
Things for which I have a soft spot #3 – good liner notes – provided here by Sheila Burgel (who I wish still had time to update Cha Cha Charming as I discovered so much good stuff on there!). Especially love Long Time Comin’ by Bimbi Worrick, written by Ellie Greenwich, who sadly passed away this year.
I also liked other things.
