Best Coast is absolutely amazing. They’re album is going to be so great.
I have to second the Frankie Rose love. She was the best thing about Vivian Girls.
And I should also mention Dum Dum Girls (who are also insanely talented) and Pearl Harbor in a round up 2009 female fronted lo-fi acts who deserve to get more attention in 2010.

The Memory Tapes album was really great and I’m disappointed to see him left off both lists. Also, I thought Best Coast and Dum Dum Girls both released some super good songs this year that made me really excited for their full lengths.

I forgot all about Songsmith! I watched that video so many times I guess I just figured it’d been around much longer. And it’s good to see the ninja’s on the list.

Eastbound and Down was one of the best shows of the decade. And Parks was so good this year. Where you at Parks?

All the artists you mentioned brought something new to the table. Owl City only apes the signifiers of the Postal Service to give his lazy stupid writing some sort of cache.
Not to mention the Magnetic Fields have a much better version of this song that they recorded in ’91.
Also, have we all forgotten the Headphones? They even did the one album and then permanent hiatus thing.

I got this album a few years ago in high school and I still absolutely love it. And I have to agree with James about this and Sea Change.

I am so excited for this release. John is an amazing musician.

Hey, I just found a competition in art:

I’ve been jammin’ “So Bored” for a while, it’s a really good song.

Lilly sounds kind of depressed, and considering her year it makes sense.
