I started writing a top 10 list of albums released in 2009 that I’d given regular time to. Turns out that 2009 was a bit shit for my kind of music. Anyway, here’s a few I did enjoy…
Omar Rodriguez Lopez – Xenophanes
Silversun Pickups – Swoon
Street Sweeper Social Club – self-titled
Josh Freese – Since 1972
Rancid – Let The Dominoes Fall
NIN – Another Version Of The Truth: The Gift
I have to put NIN in because of how this free release has come about, especially the video.
“On January 7th, 2009, over 400Gb of video from the Victoria, Portland and Sacramento shows from the same tour were unofficially released by the band.
“By working together, the Nine Inch Nails fan community have created “Another Version of the Truth” – a 3 disc release bringing together numerous editors, designers, and web programmers to create a professional digital film, followed by a physical release created by fans for fans.”
Head over to This One Is On Us to find out more and grab a version of the video in everything from iPod to Blu-Ray format.
But damn, only six. Let’s hope that every band I like was busy writing material for this year…
