Unlike so many others, the Indie Laundry staff does not present it's awards for the year in October or November. We wait untill the entire year has passed. It may not have been the most memorable year in the history of music - or at least that is the general perception among our little panel - but we have managed to compile a list of our fav's of 2009.
The alt-country rockers-cum-krautrock explorers Wilco not only delivered the concert of the year with an absolutely perfect performance at the Royal Theatre here in Copenhagen in November, they also managed to sneak our collective Album of the Year Award.
Here is the Top 10 in its entirety, followed by video snacks of the first three. Happy new year to all of you.
