sun in the clouds
it’s been a rough weekend. i was happy to wake up to a google alert that let me know the village voice pazz and jop poll of 2009 is up. many people whose writing i’ve long admired have been on the list of critics polled for some time (see: holly george-warren, rob sheffield, michael azerrad, judy berman, marvin lin, amanda petrusich). i am indebted to tiny mix tapes‘ reputation for scoring me a spot in the critics’ poll this year.
here is my album of there year, and here is my ballot.
