Radio Show: December 27th, 2009 // Best of the Year Part 2: SINGLES

January 18, 2010

Phew! We’re back! After being snowed in and more than a little tipsy over Christmas and New Year – not to mention Dionne being sidelined by a bout of Scandinavian flu after a New Year in Norway – Totally Wired arrives triumphant in 2010. In lieu of hoverboards and other space-age gizmos the new decade promised, here’s a little recap of all that was good in the sepia-toned, backwards days of musical yesteryear (2009 that is). With the Christmas socks still retaining all their elasticity (and Dionne still puzzling over the coal in her stocking), here’s a look at Totally Wired’s favorite STAND ALONE TRACKS of 2009.

You will probably notice that there are a few glaring omissions, but for the sake of variety, one or two bands that were featured in the Best Albums show were forsaken this time for some of the more left field / one-off releases…

So, in this show you can hear the likes of Vampire Weekend, Yeasayer, Chairlift, Sebastian Tellier, Phoenix, Holy Ghost – all the usual suspects from what was a pretty great year of music, right?

Hope listening back reminds you of a bygone era, before Martians ruled the Earth, and warms the cockles, like chestnuts roasting on an open fire…
