All the Young Punks’ best songs of 2009 (Part I)
It was a bountiful year for finding good new bands. Rather than doing a traditional top 10 or 20 songs of the year, I’m going to devote at least a couple of posts this week to tracks that made my playlists.
For this first post, I’ll focus on bands I discovered for the first time in 2009. Portugal. The Man made a great retro-sounding song in People Say. I like almost everything the Builders and the Butchers put out (same goes for the Pains of Being Pure at Heart). Girls, The xx and Sin Fang Bous were pleasant surprises.
Here’s some of the year’s best.
