Howdy. This EP (released in 2009) by electronic artist Khonnor was added to Spotify four days ago. Enjoy!

Hello. The fine self-titled debut album by The Calm Blue Sea, released in 2009, is now being reissued and thus a very recent addition to the Spotify library. Genre: post-rock. Enjoy!

Good evening. A couple of albums by Levon Helm was very recently added to Spotify. This one, released in 2009, is my top pick. Enjoy!
Levon Helm – Electric Dirt
Howdy folks. It took me a couple of days to understand what was going on with this album, but now I know everything. This album, the second one by singer-songwriter Sean Rowe, was first released in 2009 (via CD Baby). Then he was signed to Anti Records in 2010 and they are now releasing this very good album again as a 2011 release. Yeah, it was not so hard to understand when I found all the information I needed. Anyway, give it a try and enjoy!
(Note: this guy has a wonderful voice!)
Sean Rowe – Magic
Howdy folks. From todays Spotify update comes this special album from Julian Lynch. It was first released on cassette in 2009, then got a digital release in 2010. Genre: experimental psychedelic lo-fi folk-pop. Enjoy!
Julian Lynch – Born2Run
Hey again. This is a find that should make many of my readers happy. From a very recent Spotify update comes the self-titled debut album by Real Estate. It was released all the way back in 2009 and now I can finally remove it from my list. Genre: surf pop/rock. Enjoy!
Real Estate – Real Estate
Hello again. This album was first released back in 2009 and I have no idea when it was added to Spotify. Genre: dreamy lo-fi pop. Enjoy Emily Reo!
Emily Reo – Minha Gatinha
Morning. No, their new album has not been added, but while waiting for that release why not give their self-titled debut a try? Intense stuff. Enjoy Grass Widow!
(Damn. The new album is actually available – in the UK. Interesting year of release though.)
(Genre: post-punk/surf rock.)
Grass Widow – Grass Widow
Hey there. Danish band Afenginn plays a modern variation of traditional instrumental folk music, often with a cool Balkan touch to it. Their latest album was released in 2009, but probably added to Spotify earlier this year. Enjoy!

Hello again. This album by Norwegian folk/pop/rock duo Green Sky Accident was originally released in 2009 and added to Spotify earlier this week. Enjoy!

Good evening. Let me introduce Piper and Skylar Kaplan (short interview here). They are young, they are cool and they are sisters. Oh, and they are also the core members of lo-fi fuzz-pop band Pearl Harbor. This is their excellent debut EP. It was released last year and very recently added to Spotify. Enjoy!
Pearl Harbor – Something About the Chaparrals
Good evening. It’s time for the fifth and final part in my latest project. In part one I wrote:
“A couple of days ago I began tidying up among my Spotify playlists and in the process I found plenty of albums from 2009 that I had either ignored or forgot about. After some intense listening I narrowed it down to 20 releases. Many of these albums have probably been mentioned before over at On The Spot or at some other sites, but I still think it’s great to give them another spot in the sun.”
Caroline Herring – Golden Apples Of The Sun
The Soundcarriers – Harmonium
When I Was 12 – Dear Eskimo
Withered Hand – Good News
Good evening! This is part four of five in my latest special project. If you don’t know anything about it, please check out part one. Enjoy!
(Note: the Television Pickup album was released in 2008, but got a wider CD Baby release in 2009 so that’s why it fits into this series.)
Piroth – Safe Haven
Prince of Assyria – Missing Note
Seeland – Tomorrow Today
Television Pickup – Kinescope Mountain
