BEST OF MUSIC - 2006

I never did a best of music for 2006 or 2007 or ever.

Let's hear it for "Best of" releases way after stuff has settled and time has tested, ya?

ESSENTIAL
Wowee Zowee (Sordid Sentinels reissue) - Pavement
Silent Shout - The Knife
Beach House - Beach House
Shut Up I am Dreaming - Sunset Rubdown
Let Me Go Let Me Go Let Me Go - Jason Molina
So this is Goodbye - Junior Boys
Fishscale - Ghostface Killah


NO DICE
TV on the cookie mountain (< Desperate Youths < YOUNG LIARS)
Joanna Newsom YS ( < MILK EYED MENDER)
Band of Horses ( < lots of things)


Maybe 'll do a 2007 tomorrow. Does anybody care? Whatever. Haha I like lists...

It's not so much a hatred for Ys, but an absolute LOVE for Milk Eyed Mender. Just in comparison, y'know. I appreciate it and some of it is great but I think it's bloated and kinda flawed...


have you seen this???

The only album I could come up with for 2006 was Tom Waits - Orphans: Brawlers, Bawlers & Bastards

2007: The White Stripes - Icky Thump
Interpol's album was alright and I haven't listened enough to the new Black Rebel Motrocycle Club or Wu-Tang.

Apparently I need to listen to more contemporary music.

DUDE. I really wanted that Tom Waits package but I could never bring my self to download it OR pay the $34. Damn. best of 07 coming up in a little bit, I'm still tackling a few cds.

But I feel you on this whole contemporary thing
