FILTER’s Top 10 of 2009, Day 6: Sara Lov

The end of a year inevitable brings about reflection, celebration, and top 10 lists. As we enter into the last weeks of 2009, FILTER has taken part in all three end-of-the-year rituals by presenting not only the staff's personal favorites and the magazine's best reviewed albums of the year, but also letting guests artists give their expert opinions on what 2009 albums deserve to be recognized as the best of the best.

 

Ready to share her expert opinion is indie songstress Sara Lov. The softly hypnotic L.A. singer had a productive year with the release of her debut EP last January and a full-length album, Seasoned Eyes Were Beaming, following in March. No stranger to showing appreciation for her fellow musicians—her debut EP featured covers of Arcade Fire and Beck songs—Lov's list of the best albums of 2009 shows some love for her former touring mates, Sea Wolf.
