Through the week of the 20th, the AllMusic Blog will be publishing our editors' favorite albums of 2009. We'll be covering well over a dozen genres and styles, from rap to reggae, R&B to electronic, country to Latin, blues to metal, folk to soundtracks, and several points in-between. Right now, on the AllMusic Blog, we take a look at the first half of our favorite indie rock and pop albums of 2009.
