My favorite 10 albums of 2008

This was a fantastic year of new music. We saw a bunch of great shows and fell in love with some great albums.

Here are my favorite albums released this year.

1. Lucky – Nada Surf

2. Vampire Weekend – Vampire Weekend

3. How Ya Lookin Southbound – Ben Kweller

4. For Emma, Forever Ago – Bon Iver

5. In Rainbows – Radiohead

6. Feed the Animals – Girl Talk

7. Furr – Blitzen Trapper

8. The BBC Sessions – Belle & Sebastian

9. Narrow Stairs – Death Cab for Cutie

10. Consolers of the Lonely – The Racounteurs

Biggest disappointment this year: “Skeletal Lamping” by Of Montreal. I love this band but I just didn’t get this last record.

Next year is looking to be a great year as well. I’ve already gotten an advanced copy of Ben Kweller’s “Changing Horses” which is awesome. And I can’t wait for “Hazards of Love” by the Decemberists.

Many thanks to all my friends on Tumblr, and the hype machine for turning me on to so much great music!
