so i have been thinking about the tops albums of 2008 thus far. i was going to post my list, but i thought that it would seem a bit repetitive. i mean most of our favs have been fairly similar, and mine would have probably been about the same. so i decided to make a list of some of the stand-out tracks this year. let me know what you think.
in no particular order.
1 air france - collapsing at your doorstep
2 girl talk - in step
3 health - crimewave
4 sigur ros - festival
5 fleet foxes - ragged wood/your protector (tie)
6 ratatat - shempi
7 bonnie 'prince' billy - i'll be glad
8 the tallest man on earth - the gardner
9 no age - eraser
10 frightened rabbits - good arms vs bad arms
11 wolf parade - the grey estates
12 ponytail - beg waves
13 the acorn - oh napoleon
14 m83 - too late
15 animal collective - street flash
16 the notwist - boneless
17 man man - el azteca
18 neon neon - i told her on alderaan
19 the ruby suns - tane mahuta/remember (tie)
20 damien jurado - trials
21 dan friel - ghost town pt. 1/horse heaven (tie)
so far so good, huh? these aren't necessarily representative of the best albums, just my favorite songs. eat it.
