Great 2009 Albums that I didn’t hear until 2010

THEM CROOKED VULTURES/THEM CROOKED VULTURES

Supergroup featuring Josh Homme of Queens of the Stone Age (and earlier of Kyuss), Dave Grohl (drummer of Nirvana and singer/guitarist of Foo Fighters) & John Paul Jones-bassist of a little known band named Led Zeppelin. Though the record isn’t perfect 5 or 6 songs are mighty and the album hits hard. This is much needed riff rock from three absolute standout players.










REAL ESTATE/REAL ESTATE

College age jangle rock indie band from New Jersey form the summer between semesters and create an excellent nod to suburban semi-angst.










ANIMAL COLLECTIVE/FALL BE KIND EP

Buy Animal Collective - Fall Be Kind - EP Buy Amazon Fall Be Kind

One of Brooklyn’s band of the decades follows up the best album of 2009 with another worthy collection- the second and best track on the EP even includes the first cleared Grateful Dead sample on record.









RURAL ALBERTA ADVANTAGE/HOMETOWNS

Buy The Rural Alberta Advantage - Hometowns Buy Amazon Hometowns


Intriguing band from Alberta, Canada come out of nowhere with a throughly enjoyable collection of indie-pop songs about small town values, hardships and heartache.  Almost Canada’s answer to America’s midwest alt-country movement.

    Martin- which one? Them Crooked Vultures? If so then yeah it’s their first. It’s a super group made up of Dave Grohl on drums (Nirvana, Foo Fighters), Josh Homme on vocals & guitar (Queens of the Stone Age) and John Paul Jones on bass (Led Zep). Pretty mighty!
