Man, I should not have set myself something to write everyday. It’s tough! I am not in a writing mood at all at the moment. Oh well…to the Top 10 albums and songs of the year as chosen by me. And I matter.
Song #10: This is the Dream of Win and Regine by Final Fantasy
From the tongue-firmly-in-cheek-oh-so-hipster title of the song to the plucking of the violin, I just adore this song. Final Fantasy is Owen Pallett who is in every Canadian band. Well not really, but he has his solo stuff, he tours with the Arcade Fire and he used to be part of the Hidden Cameras (new record soon!). The melody of this song kicks my ass and any song dedicated to the reigning King and Queen (hell it’s right there in her name!) of Canadian music is fine in my books. I even heard this song on the radio today. The radio!
Please download this song now.
Album #10: And the Glass Handed Kites by Mew
- 1456 points for the album title
- 789 points for the album cover
+ 5879 points for making a “prog” record that is listenable and even damn catchy at times.
= a great record
Did anyone else even hear this one?
I saw Malkmus last night at Spectrum and actually got some decent shots. I’ll post those soon. Goodnight all. Just 9 more sleeps til Christmas. Maybe more for the North Americans.
