    Albums of 2009...six months in

    Joining the ranks of music nerds not content to wait a decent 12 months before they start hastily compiling best of the year lists, using the feeble excuse that we're em, just over the half way through the year mark and it's time to 'take stock'. And joining the general blog consensus that Grizzly Bear and Animal Collective have produced extraordinary albums, here's another list.

    I'll be rummaging around On the Record and Nialler 9's to unearth a few more gems, some other interesting half year round ups here from music for ants and pop tarts suck toasted.

    Besides what's in the list, two EPs that have to get the nod, Bon Iver's Blood Bank and Deerhunter's Rainwater Cassette Exchange. And the Dark Was the Night compilation for its jawdropping combo of America's finest talent.

    2. Animal Collective, Merriweather Post Pavillion
    3. Yeah Yeah Yeahs, It's Blitz!

    7. Doves, Kingdom of Rust
    8. Passion Pitt, Manners
    9. Julie Feeney, Pages
    10. Patrick Watson, Wooden Arms
    11. Dangermouse and Sparklehorse, Dark Night of the Soul
