2009

Non-Canadian Albums of 2009

  1. It’s Blitz – Yeah Yeah Yeahs

  2. 2009 has been Yeah Yeah Yeah’s year. It was sort of a change in sound when you listen to Zero and Heads Will Roll. The band justs want to party.

  3. It’s Not Me Its You – Lily Allen

  4. Lily has done it again in 2009. Scoring another #1 single with the Fear in the UK. Which Amy Winehouse hasn’t done yet. Dumping Mark Ronson and a change in direction in her music making it her most personal and revealing ones since her debut.

  5. Hospice – The Antlers

  6. Thanks to singinglamb for getting me the signed copy of the album. This is a mind blowing album which is haunting about someone’s journey into a hospice.

  7. Manners – Passion Pit (Ottawa show)

  8. A fun dancey pop record.

  9. Merriweather Post Pavillion – Animal Collective

  10. A fun pop psychedelic album.

  11. The Blueprints 3 – Jay-Z

  12. Don’t know what the Blueprints is about. But I love listening to Run This Town (try to tune out Kanye West) and Empire State Of Mind which is a love letter for New York City.

  13. Logos – Atlas Sound
  14. Kid Moves – Kinetic Stereokids
  15. Bitte Orca – Dirty Projectors
  16. Time To Die – The Dodos (Photos from Bluesfest)

Singles of 2009

  1. Zero – Yeah Yeah Yeahs

  2. What can I say, its been their year. Something about that song gets me dancing. Got to love that jacket Karen O is wearing in the music video.

  3. Through & Through & Through – Joel Plaskett

  4. Catchy rock-pop tune by the amazing and talented Joel Plaskett

  5. Bras D’Or Lakes – The Hylozoists

  6. For those who aren’t aware or surprise with this band. They are instrumental Toronto band fronted by Paul Aucoin who plays the vibraphone.
    Something about this track is so dramatic and haunting.

  7. Don’t Haunt This Place – The Rural Alberta Advantage

  8. Don’t Haunt This Place is one of my favorite songs of 2009. Love the drum beats.

  9. (TIED) Heavens To Purgatory – The Most Serene Republic and This Thunder by The Ghost Is Dancing.
  10. I decided to have a tie since I wanted to have both songs in the Top 10.

    A very trippy music video. The song is very catchy and banjo is killer.

    This Thunder which I simply love this song, just speaks to me. The video is soo retro-cool. A perfect poppy Canadian song.

  11. Sweet Sixteen – Think About Life

  12. DANCE PARTY!!! The song has some meaning since its about what it was like being sixteen. The music video is very funny and quirky.

  13. SteamrollerBruce Peninsula

  14. Something about this song when you listen to it. You’ve been transported back in the early 1900s

  15. New Years – Ohbijou

  16. Ohbijou does it best with New Years. I find the video cute when the volcano explodes.

  17. Oh My God (Still Means Alot To Me) – The Wooden Sky

  18. Something about this song just sticks into your head.

  19. I’m Not Alone – Calvin Harris

  20. Song that hit #1 in UK with no collaboration. Its dance at its best in 2009.

  21. Pen To The Paper by Parlovr

    Decided to use this acoustic version since I can find the actual song. But when you listen to this song, you just want to rock out dancing.
  22. Sunlight by Tune-Yards
  23. Gimme Sympathy by Metric
  24. Pastel by Still Life Still
