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
