of a year

As part of the usual fare, here's my music of the two thousand and five. I was going to do an art one as well, but since it's all a bit piecemeal I've gone for album art as a substitute. It's been a great year for creative stuff, perhaps the best since 1997. Ooooh.

Get your hands off my creaking windowsill - the 12 albums

Low - The Great Destroyer
Kid Carpet - Ideas and Oh Dears
Slaeter Kinny - The Woods
The Dresdon Dolls
Arcade Fire - Funeral
Soulwax - Nite Versions
MIA - Arula
Roots Manuva - Awfully Deep
Teenage Fanclub - Man Made
Tom Waits - Real Gone
AFX - Hangable Auto Bulb
The Go! Team - Thunder Lightning Strike

Ragged pockets hold only a few singles, still 11

Antony and the Johnsons - Hope There's Someone
Pharell Williams - Can I have it Like That?
System of a Down - B.Y.O.B. (Bring Your Own Bombs)
Pendulum - Slam
Benjamen Zephania - Wrong Radio Station
Royksopp - What Else is There?
Soulwax - NY Excuse/NY Lips
Sigur Ros - Glosoli
Hole - Retreat, Retreat
The Knife/Jose Gonzales - Heartbeats
Maximo Park - Graffitti

Some suprises in the 8 things spotted

you have something from coldplay on your blog? i'm shocked! ;oP

good list there, from the ones i know. Except, I dislike "can i have it like that" i'm afraid... but Arcade Fire i was introduced to this year... very good.

'Can I Have It Like That' is a musical travesty.

Here's an unbearably pretentious little introduction - 2 things you missed

No Bright Eyes? No Gorillaz?

Ash -

The cover is fantastic, and should grace a far far better album! ;P

Martin -

Look you two, some day you'll have to accept that Pharell is a genius. But yes, I should probably have included Arctic Monkeys, Franz Ferdinand, Gorillaz, and Bright Eyes - but there's only so much room in a brief summery.
