TOP TEN 2009

i was prompted to compile a "top ten records of 2009" list today for some press-related things for my band, and as i don't post in my blogs nearly as much as i should (looks like i've got my new year's resolution), i figured i'd post it here! after all, it is my music blog. if you haven't heard of any of these bands, i know most if not all of them have myspace profiles and i urge you to please check them out!

2. Mayer Hawthorne - A Strange Arrangement
3. Polar Bear Club - Chasing Hamburg
