The Rest of Jukebox, 2009.

Over at The Singles Jukebox, we’re mired in our 2009 Best-Off, which is amusing and yet taking longer than any of us anticipated. Thankfully, this gives me the opportunity to finally update with the rest of my year’s blurbs.

As usual, I’m at my most embarrassing and sophomoric when it comes to music I unabashedly love (see: Campesinos, Marina) than I am with that which I like with reservations or that unexpectedly grew on me. Work in progress, as always. The Annie one is another low point…the song hit my pleasure centre as a kiss-off in the style of Lily’s ‘Knock ‘Em Out’, and I somehow ended up coming off as an uncritical pusher of pop. One day I will figure out how to do this.

2010. Clean slate, rededication to thoughtfulness, less intellectual laziness and short-cuts, hopefully.
