The 10 Best Tracks of 2009

I’m beginning to sound like a broken record I know, but this list was probably the most difficult thing I’ve had to compile, even outside of the blog.

I think the main contributing factor behind this is that the blog isn’t specialised, there’s just too much good stuff out there to choose from. We don’t just post some electro/dance kinda stuff. We don’t just put a focus on indie rock. We post both of those…and about 50 other styles too (50 might be a slight tiny exageration…). As our About page says, “we’ll like just about anything”…and whilst this may seem to be a bit of a hinderence when it comes to compiling best of lists, I think it’s what makes maamf just that little bit different…different to the 50 gazillion other music blogs out there.

Anyway, enough of blowing the maamf trumpet and onto the 10 best tracks of 2009.

There’s a good mix here. Some electro, some indie pop, some singer songwriter stuff, hell…even some hip hop. I’ve even numbered them too…big call and was difficult…so please don’t take too much notice of the order the tracks are in!!

10. Goodnight Owl – Maps & Compasses

09. Van She – (Don’t Fear) The Reaper

08. The Temper Trap – Fader

07. The Golden Filter – Solid Gold

06. Hermitude – Your Call (feat. Urthboy & Elana Stone)

05. Tim & Jean – Come Around

04. Grizzly Bear – Two Weeks

03. Yeah Yeah Yeahs – Zero

02. The Middle East – Blood

01. Phoenix – Lisztomania

Comment away people! Be interested to know what you think of my list, and what made yours!!
