Why break my back?

Normally, by this time of year I've compiled best of lists, and while I started the process, David over at Largeheartedboy has already done the work, so instead I'll just refer you to his list, as it has pretty much everything I was linking to (and more.)

While I'm almost ready to unleash my 100+ album list, I've also been compiling other year-end lists as playlist.

First one is from the post-punk pioneer label and record store - Rough Trade Records. Compiled by their employees, this has a lot of albums that haven't made it over here yet, so it's worth checking out. The playlist features those that have made it here (in some fasion.) And top of the list is Beirut's Gulag Orkestar.
