Turns out that alot of my favourite albums this year are borne out of the shows I've attended in 2009. I only wish I had albums to add to this list from Lost in the Trees and The Rosebuds. Maybe next year. An amazing music year all around from XX Merge to this years expanded and excellent Troika Music Festival its been pretty non-stop around here for great things to see. So excited to finally see St. Vincent and be re-introduced to Andrew Bird in such a strong way this year as well. Comments welcome as I am sure I left things off. The new Muse record being quite good and the new U2 slowly, slowly growing on me until I saw the concert this fall and gave in to this new one from them.

I haven't yet heard some of those, but I love the Old Ceremony and Love Language records from this year as well. I'd add to that Roman Candle, Holsapple and Stamey, Lonnie Walker, I Was Totally Destroying It's "Horror Vacui," and the new one by the Avett Brothers, which I absolutely love. I guess I've been listening to a lot of NC music this year!
