Most amazing music this year...for me


[updated w/ youtube links]

SONG: 1. "Portions for Foxes" (*Lorelai!) 2. "Girlfriend" * (as featured in Big Love!) 3. "The Jeep Song" (*Veronica!) 4. "The Needle Has Landed" *

LBUM: 1. Pinkerton * (had to eventually become my most played...yay Orientalism!) 2. Forever *  (best youtube comment: What the hell is a PGP key?) (this album is still universally overlooked as "obviously" a band's greatest triumph...as Pinkerton once was)

WHOLE CORPUS: The National * (a band I've known for maybe a year; thanks to willmagic

JUST THEIR RECENT WORK: 1. Her Space Holiday (The Young Machines, the remix album, and The Past Presents the Future) 2. Ben Lee (Awake Is The New Sleep and Ripe)

INCREASINGLY CONVINCED spans the best career in world history: R.E.M. *

SEXY STARBUCKS GIRL: A Fine Frenzy

SUDDENLY STARTING TO APPRECIATE after years of exposures: Pinback *



HONORABLE MENTIONS that I keep enjoying surprisingly more as this decade goes on: Aqua, Frank Black, Bjork, Blink-182, Counting Crows, Ben Folds, Jesus & Mary Chain, Kent, Ladytron, The Magnetic Fields, Panic! At The Disco, Regina Spektor, the new TMBG (now "The Else"), TV On The Radio, Young Galaxy



FAR & AWAY THE BEST PORTABLE MUSIC PLAYER + INTEGRATED LEECHER AND SERENDIPITOUS EXPLORER: Sansa Connect + YMU (their integration is truly astounding)

PRETTIEST (HORRIFICALLY UNRELIABLE) PORTABLE MUSIC PLAYER THAT I WENT THROUGH 2 OF: the now-impossible-to-find-because-too-many-returns-made-unprofitable Creative Zen V Plus 8GB
