[List] Top EPs of 2009

26 Dec

Well, I tried to stretch this list to at least five, but being the lazy fellow that I am, I think I’ll stick with the four I’ve got.

4. The Mountain Goats & John Vanderslice – Moon Colony Bloodbath
How could these two get together and not produce something excellent?

“Surrounded”
“Emerging”

3. Britney’s Spear – Britney’s Spear
In the interest of integrity and full disclosure, I am friends with these guys, and even the guy who recorded them. But I promise that I’m mentioning them here because this EP is honestly really really good.

“Burning Billboards”
“Dream Big”

2. Cory Branan & Jon Snodgrass – S/T
Cory Branan’s boys can indeed break a heart. Mr. Snodgrass ain’t so bad himself.

“Alone & Distanced”
“Walk Around”

1. John K. Samson – City Route 85
In lieu of there being any new Weakerthans material, I rushed to grab this when it came out. And now the vinyl’s on the way (with two t-shirts). John K. Samson wins at lyrics, ’nuff said.

“Heart of the Continent”
“Cruise Night”
