The last list

Is the year over yet? No? So, there’s time for the last list of 2009.

As a music addict, I’ve listened to dozen of bands all along the year. Some of these artists have managed to touch me in one way or the other, for they were part of the soundtrack of my life in 2009 (sound memory forever). And some of those acts launched new albums this year. So, with no more delays, here’s my list of the top 5 albums of 2009:

  1. The xx. The year’s best discovery. Melodic songs, sexy voices, strong bass and heart-warming lyrics. Unforgettable.
  2. Fever Ray. The world’s most luxurious electronic music bathed in feeling, meaning and purpose. A masterpiece.
  3. La Roux. How far can a beautiful voice and lovable synths go? Quite a long way, it seems. Deliciously good.
  4. The Arctic MonkeysHumbug. More mature, more guitars, more melody, more Alex Turner. For all times.
  5. PJ Harvey & John ParishA Man A Woman Walked By. Banjoes, organs, guitars and voice. A breath of fresh rock into one’s ears.

A universe of feelings:

May all of us have an art-filled and creatively rich 2010, with lots of good music too.

Indie music for sensual sex

It has been known since the invention of the first bone flute by the cavemen that music is a great addition to sex. It can make one go faster, slower, get in the mood and of course fake a headache using the loud noise as an excuse for avoiding intercourse. I for one prefer songs that make me more aware of all my senses.

With that thought in mind, I searched my I-pod for the best songs to feel more sensual when having sex. Here’s my list:

 

Here’s the video for Crystalised:

The list is given. If you’re ever having sex with me, you know how to proceed.

Quick inspiration: Quicksand

I just can’t stop loving this song by lovely La Roux:

And as my friend Cris shrewdly noted, it bears remarkable resemblance with this icon of Brazilian übertackiness from the late 80’s:

I love it when tacky becomes fashionable. Inspirational.
