Not That You Asked, but… (another truthful post)

My halloween costume, the cover of the Red Red Meat reissue. trick or treat.

my best of 2009
[Please allow me to wallow in my record geekery, thank you.]
There was a lot of really good music that came out this year. First the new records, I know the Death record was recorded in the ‘70s but I don’t think any of it ever came out before this year. For Christmas I also got the new Bassholes- And Without a Name (Columbus Discount) and the Michael Yonkers/Plastic Crimewave Sound-Bleed Out (Spiral Staircase) but I haven’t had a chance to listen to them yet, I’m sure they would have made the list.
[there’s no order to this]
New cd’s/lp’s:
Wooden Shjips-Dos (Holy Mountain)
Ty Segall-Lemons (Goner)
Spider Bags-Goodbye Cruel World, Hello Crueler World (Birdman)
Boston Spaceships- Zero to 99 (Guided By Voices, Inc.)
Jack Rose & The Black Twig Pickers-S/T (VHF)
Death-For the Whole World to See (Drag City)
Mudhoney-Live at El Sol (Munster)
Waumiss-S/T (Odessa)
El Jesus de Magico-Scalping the Guru (Columbus Discount)
Pissed Jeans-King of Jeans (Sub Pop)
Thee Oh Sees-Dog Poison (Captured Tracks)
Forge Your Own Chains-Psychedelic Ballads & Dirges ’68-’74[comp] (Now Again)

Re-Issues
Of course the Big Star-Keep an Eye on the Sky and the Beatles-Mono box, because I am a record store mutant and we live for that shit. Other really good re-issues:
Red Red Meat-Bunny Gets Paid (Sub Pop)
Loop-World in Your Eyes-(Reactor)
Eddy Current Suppression Ring-S/T (Goner)

Singles
There was a lot of goddamned singles this year, I missed about 3/4 of them. Here’s a bunch I liked:
Andre Ethier-Running of the Bulls (dull knife)
Sic Alps-L Mansion (slumberland)
Ebonics- s/t (daggerman)
Easy Action-She ain’t my Girlfiend (shake it)
GG King-Drug Zoo (rob’s house)
UV Race-Malaria (s-s records)
Woven Bones-Your Sorcery (sweet rot)

I HAD A NICE PLAYLIST TO GO ALONG WITH THE LIST, BUT I HAVE NO GODDAMN IDEA HOW TO GET A DIVSHARE PLAYLIST ONTO HERE, UGH.
