FT50: Songs of 2009

bestof2009cover_songsWe have to start this list off with a disclaimer.  We have three writers, all with different tastes, so the list should reflect that a little bit.  Also, these are our opinions, and by no means, are they meant to be seen as an “end all be all” to the question of what were the best songs of 2009.  That being said, we like our list quite a bit.  Sure, it’s got some expected numbers at the top, but the rest of the list is genius.  We’ve got some of the songs streaming for you, and the rest take you straight to youtube.  Follow the jump for full list.

Free Tour Sampler From Park The Van

ptvlogoIt’s that time of year again and the free sampler from the small indie labels continue to roll in.  This one from Park the Van is super rad because it features this sweet song from The Spinto Band that I just can’t get enough of.  This rather lagre sampler features 13 tracks from Spinto Band, Dr. Dog, Generationals and a whole bunch of others.  Get your hand on it now.
