Five that didn’t quite make my list. Favorite songs will come tomorrow…

Cold War Kids – Loyalty to Loyalty (Downtown)
Probably should have made the top 50, but I inexplicably forgot to include it in my final list.

Black Kids – Partie Traumatic (Almost Gold/Columbia)
Pretty fun and danceable indie rock record.

Secret Machines – s/t (TSM)

Though I had thought they had broken up after their last album Ten Silver Drops (they actually just lost vocalist and guitaris Ben Curtis), the new incarnation of the band released an album this year. There is almost no noticeable difference to me between the two records, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing.

Deerhoof – Offend Maggie (Kill Rock Stars)
I’ve cooled on Deerhoof over the past few years, but Offend Maggie is still a worthy effort.

Crooked Fingers – Forfeit/Fortune (CAI/Red Pig)
Another solid record from former Archers of Loaf frontman Eric Bachmann, his fifth under the Crooked Fingers name.
