PoOPlists 2009

Duncan Clark Poop 09

I thought that 2008 was probably one of the best years in music over the past decade and judging from a lot of other people’s comments, I was just about the only one who felt that way. I’m not sure what people thought this year, but for me 2009 was a year of great expectations and equally great disappointments although maybe I’m just generalizing from everything else that has been happening. Oh well, here it goes:   Buy New or…

MY SECOND EVER POOP DISC-CLAIMER (disc-lamer?): Last year I blamed my musical malaise on my distraction with the election.

Raissa St. Pierre Poop 09

Ramble site LIVE #1. Levon Helm’s Midnight Ramble Which was even more exciting than i had assumed it’d be. Hours of non-stop music and what a venue too, the barn is so inviting and the sound is perfect, a great home to this event! My favorite moments were when Levon was singing! The Organiks and Donald Fagen were the special guests. Fagen did King Harvest, it was great! Ronnie’s Site LIVE #2. Ronnie Spector At the Bearsville Theater. WOW, just…


Mark Zip Poop 09

  Buy New or Used through amazon  OR   @ eMusic Major Lazer – Guns Don’t Kill People, Lazers Do A collaboration between Diplo and Switch and a whole bunch of others (Nina Sky, Ricky Blaze, Prince Zimboo). This was my favourite by far this year. A completely mad mix of Jamaican dancehall, techno, cheese, judiciously applied Auto-tune (yes, yes, I know, I know) and other assorted flotsam and jetsam of dance music from the last 5 years. Diplo has…
