Best of 2008 – Albums

Sanita’s Choices of 2008

I absolutely love making lists, but narrowing them down to 10 (with extension)! Almost impossible considering I lost my music about 3 times this year and have no idea what music came out when.  So here is my attempt to remember all the amazing music that came out this year.



Fleet Foxes – S/T

Absolutely breathtaking music that will make any girl swoon.


Mahjongg – Kontpab

Most overlooked artist of 2008 and have you seen them live yet?


Born Ruffians – Red, Yellow & Blue

A great release after the EP hype.


Pattern Is Movement – All Together

Pure magical genius at its best.


Lykke Li – Youth Novels

How could I have not jumped on this bandwagon?


Wolf Parade – At Mount Zoomer

Definitely no Apologies to the Queen Mary, but still a great sophomore release.


Catfish Haven – Devastator

Absolutely hideous album art, but those soulful croons just keep me coming back for more.


Deerhoof – Offend Maggie

So catchy and awesome.


Lil’ Wayne – Tha Carter III

Mostly for hip hop cred.


Bon Iver – For Emma, Forever Ago

Heard this album way before 2008, but we’ll be technical anyways.

11. Thao and the Get Down Stay Down – We Brave Bee Stings and All

12. Okkervil River – The Stand Ins

13. El Guincho – Alegranza

14.The Magnetic Fields –  Distortion

15. CYNE – Pretty Dark Things
