My Most Listened to Albums of This Year Are...

1. The National - High Violet
2. Deer Tick - War Elephant
3. Clogs - The Creatures in the Garden Of Lady Walton
4. Galaxie 500 - On Fire
5. Band of Horses - Infinite Arms
6. Phosphorescent - Here's To Taking It Easy
7. Midlake - The Trials of Van Occupanther
8. Townes Van Zandt - Anthology
9. Horse Feathers - Words Are Dead
10. Real Estate - Real Estate

Okay, this is a pretty strange list. I admit, it's also pretty inaccurate. It's aggregated using Last FM and is based on the tracks scrobbled from each album. Thing is, this year I've been listening to a hell of a lot of music on Spotify, not to mention on my mp3 player. Honestly though, The National's new album is undoubtedly the one I've listened to the most. If it were to include everything else, I think you'd find some Jo Newsom, Kath Bloom and David Thomas Broughton.

It would be interesting to hear what other people have been listening to the most?

that would be The National album that isn't out for three weeks! Billy seems to love it, a guy in my office was raving about it yesterday... I'm going to be good and wait for it to become available on CD

My top few for the year must be something like...
Joanna Newsom - The Milk-Eyed Mender
Beach House - Teen Dream
Yahweh - Tug of Love
Teedra Moses - Complex Simplicity
Caribou - Swim
Super Adventure Club - Avoid Zombies
Joanna Newsom - HOOM

The very same Ally! I got a copy of it about six weeks ago before I did an interview with the band. Nothing untoward!
