As for music - some indie/non label released stuff was quite good, some people at this forum made some great music with Live, but in terms of more established and signed acts, nothing really stands out. Nothing revolutionary that is an essential buy at least.
pretty much the same here, with one or two exceptions

2009 has been great musically for me, i bought more vinyl this year than i have done for many a year, though not much music that was actually released in 2009

local stuff, small live performances and cd's picked at gigs, word of mouth etc have been the best sources. from this route i would highly recommend acquiring music or going to see perform : a child rasputin, paul mosley, and klinker and recluse music nights

got recommended via this wonderful forum the other day - cloaks, dubstep does merzbow. got it yesterday, great stuff

then also - merzbow - protean world and microkosmos
oxbow - the narcotic story

PIL - peel sessions. obviously not released this year, but has just become available as a free download : http://mondo-de-muebles.blogspot.com/20 ... on-ep.html

and going down a pop route : i got lady gaga poker face remixes on white vinyl, i cant get enough of that song

the ting tings


and my stuff :wink:

Careering! Utterly chilling. Still as powerful as ever. Thank you for posting this.

Video of Careering being performed live on The Old Grey Whistle Test (1980):

Great recommendations. Definitely have to check a lot of these out. Thanks.

Of the ones I've heard; Fever Ray and Luisine.
Fever Ray made a huge impression on me, more than any record in years. She was absolutely amazing live also.
