My favourite Hong Kong indie album for 2009 - My Little Airport's fourth album, Poetics. Something Between Montparnasse and Mongkok. Having said that, there's lots of live music about, but it hasn't been much of a year for those of us who like to listen at home. I think I only bought four CDs all year, which means that compiling the Time Out Best of Hong Kong Indie 2009 podcast couldn't have been that easy. Worth a listen even though half the bands haven't actually put out a CD yet. MLA's Donald Tsang, Please Die! is in there, but I wonder if they couldn't find space for Velvette Vendetta and Ketchup - two acts that did release CDs during the year.
