PoOPlists 2009

John Greak Poop 09

2009: The Year In Muse-Ick 2009, you are barely three weeks past in the rear view mirror of life and I’m already getting sentimental over you. Not that you were a very good partner, just that 2010 has started out no better than the miscreant year that was. Okay ’09, in your defense, you were only miserable for a few months. You provided some massive highs – an Obama inauguration, lots of great music, lots of great times spent with…


Michael Hodgkiss Poop 09

  Buy New or Used through amazon Wilco WILCO THE ALBUM By far the best recording of the year,and Wilco’s best not only for this year but in quite some time. Burned a few copies for my car, home, iPod, alarm clock, etc. Had the sucker on constantly and never got tired of listening to it.   Buy New or Used through amazon Rosanne Cash THE LIST Geez, I remember getting lists from my parents too, but my album would…


Andrew Stewart Poop 09

  Buy New or Used through amazon   OR   @ eMusic 1. Avett Brothers/I and Love and You: These shaggy bluegrass underdogs make some questionable choices, going for big production and an even bigger sound, and somehow come up with a kind of a masterpiece. Chock full of fantastic songs – epic piano ballads and twangy rockers – this album sounds like they’ve been planted, tended, watered, blossomed, and grown ten feet high. Stunning.   Buy New or Used…


Irv Rosen Poop 09

What I Listened to in 2009 I just can’t do this anymore. Music seems to have lost most of its relevance. I listen to almost no new music, i.e. music by new artists. I only listen to new and old music from the old fogies I mostly grew up on. Why? I suppose it is meant to be this way. Today’s music does not speak to me for the most part. Is it a quality issue? Maybe. Is it older…


John Lefsky Poop 09

I’m finding hard to be interesting, clever, whatever, this year. Most of you know that we lost one of our members, and I lost a friend and boss, Jack Goldberg. All I can hope for is that he would have liked some of the music on this list, and I am sure he would have found most of it annoying as hell.      On a positive note, there was so much good music this year, I couldn’t keep up. So, to…


Paul Cangelosi Poop 09

(in no particular order) This POOP is dedicated to Lux Interior. My Hero, my Buddy, my Teacher.   Buy New or Used through amazon Le Reno Amps – Tear it Open (Drift): Scottish band that hits the mark on a few genres. There are songs with a rockabilly flavor and even a couple that you can hear a They Might Be Giants thing going on. This is a great disc for when you have company and just can’t decide what…


Jeff Schwartz Poop 09

This is what I was able to muscle out this year, please read responsibly……….   Buy New or Used through amazon WOLFMOTHER – Cosmic Egg Yes, Sabbath, yes White Stripes/Jack White, but how about WOLFMOTHER? They do bring their own sound to the table you know. And to reiterate a phrase that’s often echoed here in the poop, “NO Sophomore Slump Here!”. With songs that completely rock out like “Back Round” & “Pilgrim” plus the softer amazing tunes like “Caroline”…


Ken Beck Poop 09

  Buy New or Used through amazon  OR   @ eMusic 1. St. Vincent – Actor [4AD] A sublime blend of John Cale, Bowie and the edginess of TV on the Radio. Annie Clark sure plays a mean guitar.   Buy New or Used through amazon  OR   @ eMusic 2. Grizzly Bear – Veckatimest [Warp] Finally an album to rival Department of Eagles’ “In Ear Park”. Far more listenable and satisfying than Animal Collective’s release from this year.  …

Jamie Hosley Poop 09

09 was an interesting year. Since this is my second year of POOP I did a better job of noting what I listened to throughout the year and managed to actually get a larger list together this time around. These albums are in no particular order, they are just the 10 that I came back to the most often over the course of the year in general.   Buy through amazon   OR   @ eMusic 1. Illinois: The Adventures…

Peter Aaron Poop 09

     Buy New or Used from amazon 1) Various Artists Take Me To The River: A Southern Soul Story 1961-1977 (Ace/KentRecords) Pricey import that matches the hype. Almost uniformly slow-burning but still the best soul box since Rhino’s 1997 Beg, Scream & Shout!, hands down.       Buy through amazon   OR   @ eMusic 2) Tinariwen Imidiwan: Companions (World Village) After 2007’s comparatively studio-driven Aman Iman: Water is Life, Mali’s masters of desert psych-blues strip it back…


Dan Wilmer Poop 09

This Year’s Best Indie Rock and Alt Country   Buy New or Used through amazon  OR   @ eMusic 1.Drummer – Feel Good Together “Four drummers, not drumming.” This side project of mostly Akron-based musicians is led by Patrick Carney, the drummer from the Black Keys. The triumphant anthems on this record were my favorites by far this year.  Buy New or Used from amazon   OR   @ eMusic 2.Phoenix – Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix The 4th record from these…

Tim Broun Poop 09

Mike Jurkovic Poop 09

poop o mine 09 just as I thought the country had turned a great corner, I come to realize it’s more fucked than ever. Now I gotta intelligently (a word obsolete in our manner & discourse) disinter what sucked from what didn’t (a line harder & harder to discern as my eyes and interest flee south). Hell man, I’m not Glenn Beck the great anesthesia stooge. I can’t lead you from the darkness. so I don’t know what the best…
