Hey guys! I’m back!! You may not have noticed, but I’ve taken a bit of a sabbatical from the ol’ blog since around the first of the year, just posting a random video here and there. Officially, the reason for the light posting has been this huge national test I had to study for and take (ugh), but to be honest, I also just needed a break from writing-about/seeking-new music – just some time to decompress and soak in all the good music I’ve already got, and even make a little of my own. I’m not gonna lie, it felt really good. But now I’m refreshed and ready to tackle whatever 2011’s got for me!

And oh man! I couldn’t have imagined that the first thing 2011 would grace my ears with would be a new Loney Dear track! But it did! And it’s great! It actually appears on Love SIC Disco, a fantastic little sampler that commemorates the 100th release on the small London label Something in Construction. You can grab the Loney Dear song right below, as well as stream the whole comp under that. If you like it, you can download it for free right here.

2009 Top 25Well it’s that time again. It’s been a good year in music for sure – so much so that we’ve bumped our list up to 25 albums this time around, and even then we were having to painfully cut out some clearly great records.

Remember, this list represents our favorite albums of the year, not necessarily the best albums of the year. If we had to pick what we thought were the very best albums critically, this would probably be a very different list. But we’re no critics, so that’s not what we’re going to do. These are simply our very favorite albums of the year – the ones that made us laugh, cry, dance, smile, press repeat, wet our pants, etc. This is what we’ll remember when we look back on 2009.

Here we go:
