Most years, this is a much greater presentation from myself and I’m sorry that this year isn’t the same. It’s been a shit year and that fact combined with the depression that comes with it has sapped my entire motivation to sit down and do all the HTML formatting to make this list as beautiful as (i feel) it normally is.

Presentation aside. I stand by this list wholly. I may not have been able to muster the ambition to format it like years past (I am taking pills that are intended to get me back there) but the list was as brooded, mulled and fussed over as any other year.

So. Without any further ado. Here are, in my opinion, the best albums of 2012 (with links to the original review):

10. Tin Horn Prayer – Grapple The Rails (not yet reviewed)
09. Andrew W. CombsWorried Man
08. Alone At 3AMMidwest Mess
07. The Great UnknownsHomefront
06. JKutchma & The Five FifthsPastoral
05. Lee Bains III & The Glory FiresThere Is A Bomb In Gilead
04. OFF!OFF!
03. American AquariumBurn.Flicker.Die.
02. Arliss NancySimple Machines

And my album of the year is:

01. Scott McDougall – A Few Towns More

Most of the time you go to the station, do your show and leave. It becomes a routine of sorts. Occasionally you do a show that you really feel good about. Last night was one such show. Not sure what it is that sets some apart from the rest but whatever it is, last night’s has it.

I opened the show with a Lumineers, Mastersons, The District Attorneys set I’d been thinking about doing for a few weeks but wasn’t sure how it would go over with the listeners. While the middle of the show features a brand new Gaslight Anthem track as well as a set featuring some of the bands I am looking forward to seeing at next week’s Tropical Heatwave. Finally, on a whim I decided to close the show with a track from the new OFF! album. That’s probably what put the show over the top for me.

Sound like the good stuff? Then go put some ears on the archived stream of the show.

02. The Lumineers – Ho Hey

The past few weeks have seen 9b Radio sit in a more mellow groove so I decided to up the rock level of this week’s show. It certainly didn’t hurt to have Truckstop Darlin’ and Tin Horn Prayer send me brand new songs and when you combined those with Sunday Valley, an unreleased track from the Bohannons the rock kind of upped itself. Even the requests fit the overall feel I was going for last night so good job to the listeners. Now! Go put some ears on the archived stream of the show.

Below is the playlist for April 26, 2012

01. Two Cow Garage – Postcards & Apologies
02. Sunday Valley – All The Pretty Colors
03. Lincoln Durham – Love Letters
04. Kasey Anderson – Some Depression
05. Truckstop Darlin’ – Miss You More
06. Bohannons – Shanahan
07. Lee Bains III & The Glory Fires – The Red, Red Dirt Of Home

That there interweb is big and vast and sometimes it’s easy to miss some of the awesome that happens on it. So here is an attempt to link to some of the other awesome that’s happening out there:

  • R.E.M. called it quits this week and there has already been no shortage of homages to the band and their discography. Personally, I was never a huge R.E.M. fan but I did find these two articles interesting. They were the first two articles ever written about the band and that kind of history is fascinating to me. I also find the news a tad convenient as the band has “their first career-spanning retrospectivecoming out in November. Now, I’m not saying this is all a stunt to boost sales…I’m just saying I wouldn’t be exceedingly surprised to see a reunion tour in a couple of years.

And that’s it folks. Have a fun, safe weekend and try not to get hit by any falling satellites.

It was a really busy week here on ninebullets and we’re hoping that will be the new norm with all the new writers so I thought I’d start posting a weekly recap on the weekend (good idea?). So let’s get into it:
