Best Music of 2007

Here is the “best” group of releases for 2007:

Bat For Lashes – Fur and Gold
Blonde Redhead – 23
Dean & Britta – Back Numbers
Earlimart – Mentor Tormentor
Emily Haines – Knives Don’t Have Your Back
Film School – Hideout
Grizzly Bear – Friends EP
Let’s Go Sailing – The Chaos In Order
Miracle Fortress – Five Roses
Peter Bjorn and John – Writer’s Block
Radiohead – In Rainbows
Sea Wolf – Leaves In The River
Stars of Track and Field – Centuries Before Love and War
The Sea and Cake – Everybody
Tullycraft – Every Scene Needs A Center
Wilco – Sky Blue Sky

I saw Blonde Redhead, Dean & Britta (what a cool, laid back show), Earlimart (excellent), Film School, Grizzly Bear (twice and they are a must-see), Stars of Track and Field (twice) and the Sea and Cake. I had tickets for Peter Bjorn and John but had to cancel at the last minute. Same for Tullycraft (which bummed me to no end). I missed Sea Wolf due to being on-call for the office.

If push comes to shove and I’m forced to pick a top release for 2007, it would have to be a tie between Radiohead (IMHO In Rainbows is their best release to date… better than OK Computer or Kid A) and Earlimart.
