Apparently this is the time of year when everyone is supposed to publish their ‘best album of the year’ lists. I won’t make any attempt to claim sufficient knowledge of the music scene to declare which recordings are the best of the year. But I thought it would be fun to publish a list of the music of what I enjoyed the most in 2008. Sound off in the comments if you want to add your own favorites from the year past.
So, here are my top 10 in no particular order.
- Dear Science – TV on the Radio
- The Stand Ins – Okkervil River
- The Juno soundtrack
- Fleet Foxes – Fleet Foxes
- Jukebox – Cat Power
- For Emma, Forever Ago – Bon Iver
- Vampire Weekend – Vampire Weekend
- We Started Nothing – The Ting Tings
- Narrow Stairs – Death Cab for Cutie
- Sleep through the Static – Jack Johnson
