As 2009 draws to a close its time to look back and divvy up the best releases from a vast field of contenders. '09 saw a further emergence and dominance of vinyl oriented indies (Woodsist, Captured Tracks, Mexican Summer) and took the lo-fi love to the masses. All in all not a bad year for all things Raven. Below are our lists of the most played and most loved albums and singles / EPs around the RSTB stereo. 2010 looks to be just as good plus keep your eyes out for a follow up compilation in our RSTB Presents series!
