Belatedly Yours, My Top 10 of 2009

Hey fellow dj's and WLUW listeners,

I've had the nagging feeling of some unfinished business since the new year began and I think it's because I haven't yet posted my top records of 2009. I misplaced the little notepad which had my list and I was going to blow off the annual ritual, but I found it hiding in a coat pocket recently so, better late than never, here's a few of my favorite musical things from 2009. Not only did I like the sound of these records, I liked the band names and the album titles--short and sweet, mostly. I hope this will kickstart a few more belated Best of 2009 postings from WLUW dj's. In no particular order:

Naomi Shelton and the Gospel Queens - What Have You Done, My Brother?
Various - Ghana Special
Atlas Sound - Logos
Reigning Sound - Love and Curses
Deerhunter - Rainwater Cassette Exchange EP
Obits - I Blame You
Drummer - Feel Good Together
The Clean - Mr. Pop
Thee Oh Sees - Help
Ceu - Varagosa
