DJ Insouciante's Top Ten Albums of 2006

- Urbs, Toujours Le Meme Film, G-Stone, CD- Seductive from start to finish.

- Karen Dalton, In My Own Time (Remastered), Light in the Attic, CD- a remastering of the original scratchy-voiced bluesy heartplucking 1971 LP.

- Under Byen, Samme Stof Som Stof, Paper Bag, CD- Following in the footsteps of Mum and Bjork, with more real instruments

- Messer Fur Frau Muller, Triangle, Dot & Devil, AeroCCCP Recordings, CD- crazy Russians dig deep into the vault of cult movie soundtracks, fun ensues

- CSS, Cansei De Ser Sexy, Sub Pop, CD- Equally approriate for stepping into a club or truck stop.

- The Thermals, The Body, The Blood, The Machine, Sub Pop, CD- They are maturing so well! Sniff.

- Hot Chip, The Warning, DFA/Astralwerks, CD- A combination of jiggy and thoughtful, that works.

- Beirut, The Gulag Orkestar, Ba Da Bing, CD- Folk music with great beats. What?

- Matmos, The Rose Has Teeth in the Mouth of a Beast, Matador Records, CD- Can you name all of the "instruments" used on this album? Burning flesh, ohh yeahh.

- Jim Noir, Tower of Love, Barsuk, CD- Cute and cuddly blippity-blop pop
