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.

Albums

1.

Fleet Foxes – S/T

Absolutely breathtaking music that will make any girl swoon.

2.

Mahjongg – Kontpab

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

3.

Born Ruffians – Red, Yellow & Blue

A great release after the EP hype.

4.

Pattern Is Movement – All Together

Pure magical genius at its best.

5.

Lykke Li – Youth Novels

How could I have not jumped on this bandwagon?

6.

Wolf Parade – At Mount Zoomer

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

7.

Catfish Haven – Devastator

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

8.

Deerhoof – Offend Maggie

So catchy and awesome.

9.

Lil’ Wayne – Tha Carter III

Mostly for hip hop cred.

10.

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

16. Fuck Buttons – Street Horrrsing

17. Throw Me the Statue – Moonbeams

18. Vampire Weekend – Vampire Weekend

19. Girl Talk – Feed The Animals

20. Ratatat – LP3
