The GNC Top 25 of 2009

Happy Seasons, everyone. Here are the songs that really turned our cranks this last year. Jerrad may have accidentally slipped in a song that made our list in 2008, but please don't hold that against him. He's never actually listened to the show.

As always, some of these selections represent the entire album from which they were culled, and in other cases, single outstanding tracks earned their way on alone. Also, we're fairly flexible when it comes to release dates.

25 Neon Indian - Deadbeat Summer
24 Sholi - Tourniquet
23 Charlotte Gainsbourg - Heaven Can Wait
22 Japandroids - Wet Hair
21 David Bazan - Bless This Mess

19 So Many Dynamos - Artifacts of Sound
18 Giddy-Up, Helicopter! - Tiny Moon
17 Tortoise - Minors
16 Philip Pietri & the Manatees - I'll Wake Up
15 The Pepper Pots - Real Tru Love
14 Fruit Bats - The Ruminant Band
