My favourite songs of the year so far (IV)

As of August I’d picked off my 18 favourite songs of the year so far:

  • neko case . middle cyclone
  • von bondies . chancer
  • dan auerbach . heartbroken, in disrepair
  • john frusciante . unreachable
  • heartless bastards . be so happy
  • and you will know us by the trail of dead . ascending
  • and you will know us by the trail of dead . fields of coal
  • ume . the conductor
  • thermals . when i died
  • william elliott whitmore . old devils
  • yeah yeah yeahs . heads will roll
  • japandroids . heart sweats
  • great lake swimmers . still
  • rural alberta advantage . the dethbridge in lethbridge
  • antlers . two
  • antlers . kettering
  • lightning dust . i knew
  • now, now every children . everyone you know

Five more have made the grade:

  • wye oak . tattoo
  • wye oak . mary is mary
  • drummer . mature fantasy
  • drummer . diamonds to shake
  • xx . crystalised

I suppose this means my ‘best songs of 2009’ list won’t really be a surprise when I post it in December.
