January- March 2009 in 41 Tracks.

. Thursday, April 9

So the other day I looked over the last three months best albums and heaped praise on The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart, Sky Larkin and Franz Ferdinand in particular. Now is the turn of the single, or as it is better known these days 'track'. The very concept of a single seems slightly redundant now with internet leaks, Myspace streams and Spotify destroying the temporary relief of album anticipation a single once provided. What is now a much bigger trend is the free download, a way of introducing your new music to the fans and hoping they then come back and pay for another ten tracks. This list of tracks includes a few free downloads along with b-sides, remixes, good tracks from bad albums, live performances and a couple taken from the best albums of 2008 still demanding attention in '09.

In my mind these are the best tracks that are a) Not on the albums mentioned in Tuesdays post and b) not on the albums released in April, May and June that may well be doing the rounds (So no Zero, Black Wax, Bonkers, Daniel, Love You Better or The Reeling). They and many more will be included when I do this again in three months time.

Until then enjoy the definitive run-down of the best tracks 2009 has given us so far. To listen/ watch the video's then click here
