Best of 2006

First, this nicely done wrap-up at K-Punk... 2006 Rewind.

Following others, I offer my favorites of 2006:

Burial - Burial

Jeremy Enigk - World Waits

Scott Walker - The Drift

Jesu - Silver

Deftones - Saturday Night Wrist

Sunn O))) and Boris - Altar

Thom Yorke - The Eraser

Napalm Death - Smear Campaign

Isis - In The Absence of Truth

Tool - 10,000 Days

Honorable mentions:

Pat 'O'Leary - 7 Demos

The Devin Townsend Band - Synchestra

I wanted to write a paragraph for each, but have to be out on my pedicab in time for the festivities here in Tempe, which happens to host one of the largest New Year's Eve parties in the country. According to City Search :

Tempe, Ariz.
At midnight, the world's biggest tortilla chip drops into the world's biggest bowl of salsa. The Annual Tempe Tostitos Fiesta Bowl Block Party has become one of the nation's hottest New Year's Eve celebrations. What better place to greet the new year than Arizona State University, one of the most notorious party schools. The celebration includes five blocks of big-draw musical acts, pep rallies and a blazing fireworks show at 10pm and midnight.

The above could generate its own post, along with one on New Years itself. For now, I will ride out into the cultural void of this desert cancer, moving amongst tweakers and drifters, and hopefully take home some cash tonight.
