My best of 2006 for music as I mentioned somewhere before, er maybe, are Beirut, Final Fantasy, Midlake, Girl Talk, the New Pornographers, Grizzly Bear, TV on the Radio, Cold War Kids, Sylvain Chauveau and Regina Spektor. I’d make a proper list but that would be effort. Not all of them had albums out this year but they were artists I listened to for the first time this year.
When it comes to finding new music though there are a few blogs that I use and based on their recommendations, I’d listen to some samples and get the music. So introducing my personal music shoppers, we have: Sinead Gleeson, Auds, Nialler, the Torture Garden, I guess I’m floating, You Ain’t No Picasso and Said the Gramophone.
Thanks to all these people my musical palette has been kept happy. Thank you guys and gals!
Happy Chrimbo, Mr. M, must dig up some more recommendations for you. I think you’d love that Frida Hyvonen album I mentioned.
Oh, did you ever get your Beirut t-shirt in the end? I’ll be so jealous if you did. 🙂
