2009 Top Albums So Far

July is coming to an end. Time for a short recap of the music albums that, in my opinion, left a good impression in 2009 so far. For this list, i’m taking a look at my last.fm charts, my iTunes library and at the albums I’ve bookmarked on Spotify.

I tried hard to find a way to classify the records: according to genres, geographically.. but i’ll simply hand it out alphabetically. Music has gone truly global now. Just bear in mind that I’m a guy from the island of Mauritius, currently in France, fan of everything that blends with Indian music, and who's recently developed a certain liking for post-rock instrumentals ever since he discovered Sigur Rós. That’s a pretty good description of my musical world right now.

A.R. Rahman Delhi-6
A.R. Rahman NOKIA Connections
Advaita Grounded in Space
Amit Trivedi Dev.D
Avishai Cohen Aurora
Balmorhea All Is Wild, All Is Silent
Bikram Ghosh Little Zizou
Dhruv Ghanekar Distance
Caravan Palace Caravan Palace
Charlie Wilson Hobo
Kailash Kher Kailasa Chaandan Mein
Kasabian West Ryder Pauper Lunatic Asylum
Niraj Chag The Lost Souls
Phoenix Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix
Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy Luck by Chance
Vishal Bhardwaj Kaminey
Years Of Rice And Salt Service Bell EP

I’m curious to see how this list will look like at the end of the year. Making a top 10 will be hectic!

So what did I miss?
