Musical Moments of 2005

By Jeezus i love my sounds. Running off of a conversation last night with my beloved and Sean, Nick and Eliane here are my favourtie musical moments of 2005. Albums, songs and gigs.

I am a bird now - Antony & the Johnsons

This album just got under my skin after the record label sent it into the office. It sounds like nothing else i know and is simple beautiful.

Thunder Lightning Strike - The Go! Team

Even dead people jump up and down to this album.

The Mountain Goats - The Sunset Tree

Just so good.

Demon Days - Gorillaz

Damon gets a big push from Dangermouse and creates maybe the most perfect album of the year. And it's got Sean Ryder and Dennis Hopper on it!

Dangerdoom - Dangermouse + MF Doom

Dangermouse can do no wrong. Hip-Hop superhero concept album in which Space Ghost makes a guest apperance. Totally off the planet, but great fun

The Ouch. The Touch - The Grates

Snap, crackle and pop.

Get Behind me Satan - The White Stripes

What can you say. Have these two made a dud album yet?

Funeral - Arcade Fire

I've only had the album a week but it's something i'm enjoying the heck out of. Maybe it's because i'm dying for a new Pixies album and this fills the void.

In case we die - Architecture in Helsinki

Love it!

Employment - Kaiser Chiefs

Sure they may be a Clash rip-off but the Clash ain't done nuthin in years.

LCD Soundsystem - LCD Soundsystem

Daft Punk can play at my house any day!

Takk - Sigur Ross

Sigur Ross are my discovery of the year.

Wolfmother - Wolfmother

Massively hyped and actually worth it.

One Thing - Amalie

A pop song that goes to number one in this country with just drums and a single guitar chord. Infectious, fun and a musical oddity in the ARIA charts.

Middle of the Hill - Josh Pyke

A song that just got under my skin from the first listen. Great potential but why do i get the feeling he will just end up as the next Big Fat Lloydy?

Flame Trees - Sarah Blasko

One of the Chisel's best done as a torch song.

Clare Bowditch @ ANU

What a voice!

Wolfmother @ ANU

What a show!

Big Day Out

What a day, the Spree and The Chemical Brothers!

Darren Hanlon @ Tilleys

The last show i'll see there and what a way to see it out.
