blog radio :: most likely to succeed 2K9

For today's special edition of Blog Radio, Sirius asked us to count down the top 5 artists that we think are most likely to succeed in 2009. Of course, success is a relative term, so my list is essentially just the artists I look forward to hearing new material from/want to see live/expect breakout years from in '09. The Hipster Runoff radio program kicks things off at 5 PM EST on Sirius XMU, and you can hear my show shortly after that (shows will also be rebroadcast on Saturday and Sunday). There are obviously tons of artists that didn't make the list because of time constraints, but you can see my top 5 and a few honorable mentions after the jump...


5. Ariel Pink's Haunted Grafitti :: can't hear my eyes
4. Girls :: hellhole ratrace
3. Harlem :: south of france
2. WAVVES :: weed demon
1. SALEM :: sweat

Honorable Mentions:

The Golden Filter :: solid gold
Weird Tapes :: home
CFCF :: cassie x lil' wayne :: official girl (CFCF remix)
Fan Death :: veronica's veil
Alela Diane :: white as diamonds

I second that motion on Girls for most likely to succeed in 2009. My hometown favorites! Check out another one of my SF faves, Ty Segall, if you haven't already.

Girls and Harlem are sounding fab, thanks for the nod.

Eagleowl are well worth a wee Scots look for 2009, especially their track "mf".

Take care!

You must be referring to their "sound" because solid gold was only released last summer.

Harlem, Wavves, Ariel Pink and Girls are going to kill it this year. Also, check out Red Mass www.myspace.com/redmassfce with ex-members of CPC Gangbangs and Hot Springs.

Agree with a few of your tips there.

I also think you could add V V BROWN, FRANKMUSIK, WE HAVE BAND and LA ROUX to the list, but that's why we have these things we call opinions I guess...

Any chance of getting added onto your blog roll? Let me know if you do...

Two years passed, I still remembered the scene of fighting against wolves in Tir Chonaill with friends, sharing fruit which was got by our mabinogi gold around a fire, fishing in a clean pond. Players will have five seconds freezed to make their own preparation, when the fight beings, win or lose, it depends on your own cheap mabinogi. Here is some mabinogi money I took months ago; I was the guy wielding a thick sword. And I know it is rude enough to beat a woman. But, we can use some mabinogi online gold to edit some dates in the setup menu to change the clothes we wear. As a kind of fantastic online game, I think Mabinogi is more similar to comic and need to buy mabinogi gold.

Runes of Magic is a Massively Multiplayer Online Role playing Game without monthly costs all kinds of Rom Gold and free to download. The premise is that you have played this game and understand the necessary Runes of Magic Gold in the Runes of Magic game. Perhaps the first monster I saw taken down in the demo can gain those varieties of Runes of Magic money. Characters choose one class; the important one is that we have to buy Rom Gold first. You can switch freely between the two classes, but you can only use primary abilities from your primary class, along with cheap Runes of Magic Gold, secondary abilities from your secondary class.
