Well, it’s time. Time to continue the tradition of ripping off other people’s indie 2007 top song, band and album picks for the past year. (See 2006 top songs, bands, bums and 2005 top songs, bands, bums for blasts from the past) Not only is it fun, it’s also a great way to get caught up on incredible music you may have missed. Happy New Year:
- Top 42 Songs of 2007 – Mp3Hugger put this great indie 2007 top songs list together, which is so far my favorite. Loney, Dear, Montag, and Hello, Blue Roses take top honors.
- Top 10 Indie Debut Albums of 2007 – By Berkeley Place. It’s getting harder for new bands to make it…but some young blood always rises to the top. Marnie Stern and Scissors for Lefty made the biggest waves.
- 10 Best Indie Rock Songs You Didn’t Hear in 2007 – The Washington Post (huh) dug deep to put together a list of 2007 top songs you may not have heard, but should have. Nice.
- 20 Best Indie Albums of 2007 – A list at Suite101 of the best albums supposedly "..stripped (almost entirely) of pretentiousness and hipsterness..". True? You tell me. Arcade Fire, Apparat, LCD Soundsystem, and Radiohead end up on top.
- 2007’s Best Albums – AmieStreet.com is an awesome source of good unsigned music with a demand-based pricing system…very cool. I love hunting for great mp3s that cost under $0.15. 🙂 These are some of the best performers, apparently.
