Best of 2009

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , on December 29, 2009 by thezombiesnakecharmer

It’s always hard to remember all the good or bad things that happened during a year. But I’ll give it a try with my (non-exhaustive) list of the tops and flops of 2009:

Flops:

– The Copenhagen conference failure
– Deaths of: David Carradine, Dash Snow, Vic Chestnutt, Michael Jackson, Claude Levi-Strauss, Brittany Murphy,…
– Buju Banton arrested in Miami with 20 kilos of coke, we shouldn’t be hearing new music from him in a while because of that…
– Overdose of autotune (I mean I like it, but it’s just too much sometimes)

Tops:

– Berlusconi attacked in Roma : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oIwaigZywnY
– Chavez quote at Copenhagen conference: “If the climate was a bank, they would have saved it already”…
– Soca
– Ghislain Poirier
– Snoop Doggy Dogg, qu’est-ce qu’on attend? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TkXHDqMu2dY

Best albums (in no particular order):

Phoenix – Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix
Schlachthofbronx – Schlachthofbronx
Bike for Three – More Heart Than Brains
Moderat – Moderat
Major Lazer – Guns don’t kill people lazers do
Julian Casablancas – Phrazes for the Young
Harmonic 313 – When Machines Exceed Human Intelligence

Best newcomers/confirmations:

I have been really enjoying the new uk scene with dubstep/uk funky crossover sounds with producers emerging like L-Vis 1990, Joy Orbison, Roska, Dj Mosca…

But also the cosmopolitan ethnic house which got bigger in 2009 with guys like Douster, Solo, Chief Boma, Mujava, and many more style poping up from all over the world!
