Best Sellers of 2007

So you've had a chance to see what the favourites list was all about... this is what the best sellers were in 2007:

01 Arcade Fire - Neon Bible (Merge)
02 Feist - Reminder (A&C)
03 Shins - Wincing the Night Away (Sub Pop)
04 Modest Mouse - We Were Already Dead... (Epic)
05 Julie Doiron - Woke Myself Up (Endearing)
06 Besnard Lakes - Are the Dark Horse (Outside)
07 Animal Collective - Strawberry Jam (Domino)
08 Iron & Wine - The Shepherd's Dog (Sub Pop)
09 Joel Plaskett - Ashtray Rock (Maple)
10 Caribou - Andorra (Merge)
11 Panda Bear - Person Pitch (Paw Tracks)
12 Liars - S/T (Mute)
13 Of Montreal - Hissing Fauna, Are You the Destroyer? (Polyvinyl)
14 Okkervil River - The Stage Names (Jagjaguwar)
15 Beirut - Flying Club Cup (BaDaBing)
16 Blonde Redhead - 23 (4AD)
17 Deerhoof - Friend Opportunity (Kill Rock Stars)
18 The National - Boxer (Beggars Banquet)
19 Weakerthans - Reunion Tour (Anti-)
20 Shotgun and Jaybird - Trying to Get Somewhere (Sappy)

One surprise was to see how many copies of The Liars we'd sold. It's not like the album had much of a profile but for whatever reason Fredericton seems to be a hotbed for the band. Maybe they should play Nicky Zee's?

The other surprise was how few copies the Jill Barber album we'd sold. After the e.p. went nuts for us the previous year you'd think the album would do even better... but perhaps she was swept away in the avalanche that was Feist, Jenn Grant, Rebekka Higgs et. al.
