Best (Glow-Fi Psych Pop) Singles and EPs of 2009
Gorilla vs. Bear have posted a rich year-end roundup of material not released on LPs, and it's pretty heavily biased to the year's "new sound" of fuzzy melodica. Some of this stuff is certainly great, and maybe in a down year it's exactly what we need. But, even though I love GvsB most of the time, wading through any "best of" list that's as uniform as this is a little disappointing. I wasn't even particularly paying attention for most of the year, but the year-end rounds have in and of themselves started to wear out my patience.
