Liner’s favorite albums in 2009

As you know, I’m a fan of Tearliner. Not only is he an excellent songwriter, but he’s got excellent taste in music – as shown by his choice of music for popular dramas Coffee Prince and Triple. Thus just like last year I asked if he’d like to list his favorites among the albums he listened to during the year that passed for Indieful ROK, and just as kindly he agreed. And here it is! A whole bunch of really good music to check out if you need a break from all the Korean music usually posted on here, starting with a new all time favorite of Liner’s:

The liner recommends last.fm tag radio has been reinforced with all the albums above that has a * after the year. For more controlled sampling, just click the artist name and you’ll end up at MySpace!

    Although I did recognize some of the names, I’m ashamed to say the only albums on that list I had listened to before were the Korean ones…

    What little I’ve heard of Wolftron on MySpace sounded great though, and I’ll make a point of listening to the rest before long as well :)
