The Inaugural LWAPD “Tune’dem of the Year” Awards, brought to you in association with R.White’s Lemonade*

Ah, Christmas… a time for mistletoe, mulled wine, and geeky best-something-of-the-year lists created by losers on the internet. Without further ado, here’s Tommy Digital’s Top Five Records of the Oh-Nine. Where’s yours?

1. Joker / 2000f & J Kamata – Digidesign / You Don’t Know What Love Is

Video from the Architects Journal‘s YouTube page (subscribers: 6) about the top five comic book cities.

Anybody got any strong opinions on comic books and/or architecture?

Mayer Hawthorne – Maybe So, Maybe No video

There’s so much to love about this video, it’s hard to pick one favourite thing. But I think the bit where Mayer plays the tiny geetar just about edges it for me.

The album’s due out in September apparently, and the CD will come with a tiny single on vinyl as well!

Oh, and geek boys – yes, you – you can still pick up the heart-shaped red 7″ single from theĀ Stones Throw store
