two thousand %$&#!!#$ eight.


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.

#6 has no business being at #6, more like #3 and add falcon jab to that.

erica said...

my husband can put #6 where he wants it

booyah

Jim said...

also, you should replace your ruby suns selections with ole rinka/adventure tour/kenya dig it? and move it all up to like number 5.

berry said...

bitch please. your husband wouldn't know a 6 if he saw it.

erica said...
