I won’t be so bold (or, more probably, misguided) as to say that this is a list of the best rock music released in 2009, it’s just a list of the music released in 2009 that I think I listened to the most. Or at least the quaint constructions known as “albums” released in 2009 that I listened to the most.
Them Crooked Vultures, Them Crooked Vultures
The Dead Weather, Horehound
Erin McKeown, Small Deviant Things, Vol 1
Lucinda Williams, Little Honey
Green Day, 21st Century Breakdown
Dan Auerbach, Keep it Hid
Neko Case, Middle Cyclone
Animal Collective, Merriweather Post Pavilion and Fall Be Kind
Yeah Yeah Yeahs, It’s Blitz
That’s all I’ve got til next year. Stay out of trouble, I don’t want to have to bail you out of jail in the morning or anything.
