It's Saturday night, I'm in alone and boycotting Match of the Day in a football related huff to watch Love Actually. Therefore, in no particular order, my favourite LPs of 2009. I'll try and write a bit about them, but as usual when I try and write about music I'll probably just end up saying "I like it!" because I'm rubbish at describing music I like.

Love Actually's not bad really is it?

The Pains of Being Pure at Heart - Pains of Being Pure at Heart

I may have moaned a bit about their gig a couple of weeks ago, but I still think the album's great. Fuzzy indie rock, vaguely reminiscent of Buzzcocks. Great stuff. This is Contender




God Help The Girl - God Help The Girl

So this is Stuart Murdoch's B&S spinoff - the story of a mixed up girl sung by three singers he found through internet auditions. And it's beautiful. So listen to the title track:




Moofish Catfish - Moofish Catfish

And the self-titled albums keep coming. I saw Moofish Catfish supporting someone - I can't remember who - earlier this year, and I picked up their album. I like it. Here's About This Girl.



Slow Club - Yeah So? (£4.98! Amazing bargain!)

As you may have seen, I went to their gig this week. This is It Doesn't Always Have to be Beautiful:




Pocketbooks - Flight Paths

I've talked about Pocketbooks loads on here. I <3 them absolutely and I've already shared far too much of their album probly, but have another track anyway - Every Good Time We Ever Had:




The Duckworth Lewis Method - The Duckworth Lewis Method

It's not every year that a concept album about cricket comes out, and it's not every year that a track written from the point of view of Mike Gatting is released. Jiggery Pokery:




MJ Hibbett & The Validators - Regardez, Ecoutez et Repetez

Silly, witty, fun, catchy, INDIE! I've uploaded this track, because although it's written from the point of the view of the band, I wholeheartedly agree with the sentiments expressed as a punter. It's called We're Old and We're Tired (And We Want to Go Home):

Is bad. Worthy. And Alan Rickman philanders in a non sexy way. Grrrrr.

Also, is that MJHibbert thing really spelled without the accents? In which case it could mean something quite other. Watch, listen and fart again.
