If you haven't heard, Jonsi (from Sigur Ros) is releasing a solo album this spring. I just heard the first single, Boy Lilikoi, last night. It's most similar to the up-beat side of Sigur Ros (like Gobbledigook), but is actually sung in English. I don't have anything against Icelandic or made-up languages, but I've gotta admit that being able to understand the lyrics is a major plus for the lyric-obsessed (uh, me).

So Justin and I spent a lovely little Holiday here in my most favorite state, Mary-land. It was kind enough to snow the weekend before Christmas, and stay cold so things didn't get all grey and slushy, so we had a white Christmas. Happy times, friends. Happy times.
The first album we listened to in 2010, by the way, was this little gem:
I'm thinking this (latest mewithoutYou) and the God Help the Girl albums are my favorite 2009 releases. Though I must admit that most of the albums I bought weren't '09 releases, so my opinion isn't entirely well-rounded. BUT! Great albums nevertheless.
What are some of your 2009 favorites?
p.s. I should add that I'm still kind of obsessed with our Girl Alliance release.
