Top 15 Chicago Songs of the Year: No. 1

Our favorite Chicago track of 2009 came from the mind of one Shawn Rosenblatt and his band Netherfriends. Emergency Umbrella released their debut ep, Calling You Out this year and on that ep we found the track "Nunya (Beeswax)".


Top 15 Chicago Songs of the Year: No. 2

The Smith Westerns took blogosphere by storm this year and their infectious basement surf sound has won us over as well. The debut LP was released this year by Chicago's HoZac Records and "Girl In Love" is taken from that album.

Top 15 Chicago Songs of the Year: No. 3

The third song on our countdown comes from an album that found a new home in 2009. Moon Sweet Moon was self-released in 2008, but in the hands of The Hours 2009 seemed to the year of Via Tania. "Wonder Stranger" was the first single from the album, and one of our favorite tracks of 2009.
