The Big Bang: Capping Off the Year With BiBaBiDi

new year's ball
I was too afraid to make a "Best Of" list of any sort for this year. I had a difficult time giving overall impressions of this year in music. I sort of stumbled through 2005 ... my blog changed quite a bit, but I was still stuck in transition. I think that I have finally found where it is that I want to go with this thing -- I've created some pretty permanent "series" posts, I've introduced the BiBaBiDi media player, and I've become better -- and more thorough -- at searching the web for music news and music and all that other stuff.
So -- in celebration of my first whole year of having this blog, I would like to give you all a New Year's Mix (The Big Bang) ... it does not cover the whole year, by any means, but it covers what I like currently and what I have liked throughout this year (or what has stayed on my computer's harddrive).
So, without further ado, here is The Big Band:
Islands - Rough Gem
Deerhoof - Wrong Time Capsule
the Strokes - Razorblade
Metric - Monster Hospital
Love Is All - Make Out Fall Out Make Up
Field Music - Shorter Shorter
Mystery Jets - You Can't Fool Me Dennis

Chromatics - Healer (12" Version)
Serena Maneesh - Drain Cosmetics
Clogs - Pencil Stick
the Arcade Fire - Cold Wind
Jenny Lewis & the Watson Twins - You Are What You Love
Bell Orchestre - Throw It On A Fire
Man Man - Black Missions Goggles
We Are Wolves - Non Stop
