Hey Lymbyc Systym! What's the best record of 2009?

DIRTY PROJECTORS
BITTE ORCA
(Domino Records)
by Michael Bell of Lymbyc Systym, Her Space Holiday, and Balmorhea


I've been following Dave Longstreth's music for almost a decade, and it is truly amazing to see where things have ended up for him. I'll never forget the first time I saw the Dirty Projectors at Stinkweeds Records in Phoenix, AZ, back in 2004. Yhere were fifteen people there in a makeshift space, but it was one of the greatest performances I have ever seen. They have been one of my favorite bands since that fateful night.

Runners up:
Bibio, Ambivalence Avenue (Warp)
St. Vincent, Actor (4AD)
Animal Collective, Merriweather Post Pavilion (Domino Records)
