Aesthetic Octopus’ Best of 2009 Choices! Extravaganza.

December 20, 2009

Our first ever year end list! Hooray! We made it all the way to the end of our first year (I am saying this even though we only started a matter of months ago!) of blogging and radioing. Yes. True. Statements of congratulation all around, for us.

Anyways, as we are new at this and still extremely incompetent in all fields (creativity, writing ability, creative writing ability) we are going to keep it simple. Below we will list each of our favorite three albums, our favorite television show, and our favorite lady all from the last year with no explanation at all. This is probably for the best anyways, as no one really reads the reasonings so why spend time writing them? All the readers are all like, “The Pitchforked gave this band a 9.2, alright they good.” That is what they are definitely like.

So here they are…

top three albums:

The Doctorate Upholder/DJ Mad Manuary Jones/Todd’s Top Three:

  • 3. Bitte Orca – Dirty Projectors
  • 2. Veckatimest – Grizzly Bear
  • 1. Merriweather Post Pavilion – Animal Collective

Honorable Mention:

  • Two Suns – Bat For Lashes [Ed. Note: I’m in love with Natasha Khan, you should copy me]

The Eurocentric/DJ Lucky Strike/Travis’ Top Three Albums:

  • 3. Reservoir – Fanfarlo
  • 2. Lungs – Florence and the Machine
  • 1. It’s Blitz! – Yeah Yeah Yeahs

Honorable Mention:

  • Veckatimest – Grizzly Bear

Travis and me were also very fortunate and grateful to have two full-time guests (and basically full-time hosts) come into the station every Caturday morning with us to help us make our show less not-entertaining. So yes. They get best of year lists too!

And here they are!…

DJ Pregnant Peggy/Jessie’s Top Three Albums:

  • 3. The Fame Monster – Lady Gaga
  • 2. Merriweather Post Pavilion – Animal Collective
  • 1. It’s Blitz! – Yeah Yeah Yeahs

DJ Loose Morals Joan/Abby’s Top Three Albums:

  • 3. It’s Not Me, It’s You – Lily Allen
  • 2. The Fame Monster – Lady GaGa
  • 1. I and Love and You – The Avett Brothers

  • Tarpits and Canyonlands – Bombadil
