expired license pulled by sheer proximity

My last post extensively covered my favorite albums of the year. This one just lists a playlist I made of tracks from the top 20 of those albums (but wait! there’s more…): the final installment, Bagged, in a series of 2009 mixes, cumulatively titled The Audacity of Nope. Or maybe “Dope.” I’ve been too busy to do up cover art this year, so you can decide.

  1. Circulatory System “Overjoyed” Signal Morning
  2. Anton Barbeau “Plastic Guitar” Plastic Guitar
  3. Adam Franklin “Surge” Spent Bullets
  4. Why? “This Blackest Purse” Eskimo Snow
  5. Fever Ray “I’m Not Done” Fever Ray
  6. Animal Collective “Lion in a Coma” Merriweather Post Pavilion
  7. Robyn Hitchcock & the Venus 3 “I’m Falling” Goodnight Oslo
  8. John Vanderslice “Carina Constellation” Romanian Names
  9. Neko Case “This Tornado Loves You” Middle Cyclone
  10. The Mountain Goats “Psalms 40:2” The Life of the World to Come
  11. A.C. Newman “Like a Hitman, Like a Dancer” Get Guilty
  12. Phoenix “1901” Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix
  13. St. Vincent “Marrow” Actor
  14. Grizzly Bear “Cheerleader” Veckatimest
  15. Dirty Projectors “Temecula Sunrise” Bitte Orca
  16. Charlotte Hatherley “New Worlds” New Worlds
  17. Polvo “City Birds” In Prism
  18. Yo La Tengo “Periodically Double or Triple” Popular Songs
  19. Seeland “Call the Incredible” Tomorrow Today
  20. PJ Harvey & John Parish “Passionless, Pointless” A Woman a Man Walked By
    (bonus: tracks I listened to a lot from albums that weren’t in my top 20)
  21. Hugh Cornwell “Please Don’t Put Me on a Slow Boat to Trowbridge” Hooverdam
  22. Skates & Rays “Fort Ashby” You Are My Home
  23. The Minus 5 “The Lurking Barrister” Killingsworth

    Thanks for including “Fort Ashby”… seems appropriate, as the inspiration and (mostly) subject of the song just passed away at 90 last week. Goodnight, Grandma.
