Top Ten...

Okay friends, here it is. The Bars & Guitars best of 2006. There almost seemed to be a glut of well done music this year which has made the list creation a chore. That should be a pleasure not a pain, but I don't think anything shined particularly brightly this year. Does that imply lots and lots of dim stars?

1) M. Ward - Post War

2) Cat Power - The Greatest

3) The Hold Steady - Boys And Girls In America

4) The Decemberists - The Crane Wife

5) Sunset Rubdown - Shut Up I Am Dreaming

6) Centro-Matic - Fort Recovery

7) Enablers - Output Negative Space

8) Destroyer - Destroyer's Rubies

9) DFA Remixes Chapter 1 - Various Artists

10) Midlake - The Trials of Van Occupanther

Honorable Mentions:

Death Ships - Seeds of Devastation
Owen - At Home With Owen
Portastatic - Be Still Please
Richard Buckner - Meadow
Honeycut - The Day I Turned To Glass
Bonnie "Prince" Billy - The Letting Go

I hope everyone has a great Christmas, a great holiday, stays safe, has fun, wears condoms, buckles their seatbelts, doesn't mix beer and wine, believes it's better to give than receive, hugs their kids, hugs their parents, goes for a bike ride, thinks good thoughts for the service men and women stuck in Iraq and Afghanistan, my best to all of you. I'll shout at you next week.


The obligatory Christmas style music:

Sufjan Stevens - Count Thou Font of Every Blessing - this an .mp4 so download only most likely.

Bonnie "Prince" Billy - Love Comes To Me. Maybe not so Christmas-y but it sure is pretty.
