Something Obscure: Best Albums of 2009

Best Albums of 2009
Posted on November 27th, 2009 in Music
Keep it Hid – Dan Auerbach This is the kind of album you hope for, especially from a bluesman like Auerbach. I think this is better than the Black Keys stuff if for no other reason than the addition of the more acoustic blues tracks like “Trouble Weighs A Ton”; these kind of moments add depth and contrast to Auerbach’s take on Americana.
It’s Blitz – Yeah Yeah Yeahs Just awesome pop bliss; I agree with Zinner that this band’s music would fit right into a John Huges film. “Heads Will Roll”.
Backspacer – Pearl Jam The best PJ album since Vitalogy. It’s full of energy. Listen to “Got Some”.
Before the Frost… – The Black Crowes The band’s best music since Amorica. Good to know they still got it.
Yonder is the Clock – The Felice Brothers A nice slice of Americana. This album sneaked up on me, and it might do some more sneaking up this list before long
