2009 #50-#46

21 Dec

Well the year is almost at its end, so it’s time to start the epic top 50 of the year! Fasten your seatbelts kiddies, because here’s #50-#46;

(by the way, the above photo is of a mysterious luminous ring cloud above Moscow from earlier this month, pretty interesting to look it up, for me this was one of the more interesting things that happened in ’09)

50 Friendly Fires – Skeleton Boy

After their 2008 hit, “Paris“, the St. Alban trio blew us away again with Skeleton Boy, and might I add, this song could make it into the countdown based on its impressive video clip alone! The indie hit features a catchy rift similar to the classic by Olive, “You’re Not Alone“, but obviously with a very different sound. It’s upbeat, funky and a little bit synthie, giving us the sound that we fell in love with last year. Look out for their Australian tour in February.

Friendly Fires – Skeleton Boy Video Clip

Friendly Fires – Skeleton Boy

49  Memory Tapes – Bicycle

Memory tapes is a fusion of two former identities of New Jersey based producer, Dayve Hawk; Memory Cassettes and Wierd Tapes. This track has a melodic electronic indie sound accompanied by dreamy vocals and suits perfect as a relaxing background tune. The lyrics are also quite interesting, focusing on a kind of freedom.

Memory Tapes – Bicycle

48. Bloody Beetroots – Cornelius (Radio Oi!)

Italian electro duo, the Bloody Beetroots have been huge this year, and although I usually prefer their remixes, this track is a an instant club classic. The track starts with a dark and mysterious intro with a slightly gothic and menacing undertone following the track the whole way through. It blends the standard Bloody Beetroots aggressive electro style in with a change of sound and mood that creates an instantly unique clubbing vibe. And, if you watch the video clip closely, you may notice that bits of it are shot in Adelaide’s own Electric Circus night club, kudos Beetroots.

Bloody Beetroots – Cornelius (Radio Oi!)

47. Siriusmo – High Together

Berlin producer, Siriusmo, has produced a gem here, somehow making High Together both melodic and joyful. The track just seems to have the effortless element of cool and with the high-pitched vocals, brings a charming sound to the dance floor that it is easy to dance and listen to. This is the kind of track that you want to drink a really impressive cocktail to.

Siriusmo – High Together

46. Tiga – Speak, Memory

I’m always impressed by a DJ that can sing as well, and Tiga harmonious voice compliments his chilled out synthpop sound so well. Speak, Memory relies a lot on those vocals from Tiga and also on inspiration from 80s style electronic synth production, but something about it seems to make me want to think deeply every time I hear it, about nothing to do with the song of course. To me, this track was a standout of Ciao!, even though, in the traditional sense, there was nothing stand outish about it. It’s been great to hear another album worth of releases from the extremely talented and seriously good looking Canadian producer this year.

Tiga – Speak, Memory
