My Favorite Albums of 2008

The music that I listen to seems to change every week, but these are the albums that I have most taken to over the past year.

1. Fleet Foxes Fleet Foxes – Whenever I’ve needed to relax, this album has been there for me.  

2. TV on the Radio Dear Science – I’d never bought into the hype about TV on the Radio until now.  The lyrics can be a bitter of a downer, but the beats are too catchy not to dance to.  Finger lickin’ good!

3. Cut Copy In Ghost Colors – Cut Copy and Hot Chip completely dominated my ipod for the first six months of 2008, and the party I was at this past weekend proved that I still love dancing to these guys.

4. Hot Chip Made in the Dark – Best concert I have been to outside of Daft Punk, so they’ve got to be up here.

5. The Helio Sequence Keep Your Eyes Ahead – Just a beautiful album, a significant improvement upon their previous music.

6. Santogold Santogold – At first I thought she was just a M.I.A. clone, but she does actually demonstrate a lot of diversity on her first album.

7. M83 Saturdays=Youth – I love the 80s sound!  It always reminds me of Donnie Darko.

8. Ratatat LP3 – Great music for MCAT studying.

9. Vampire Weekend Vampire Weekend – You know, this album is really losing its luster for me, but it is too solid throughout not to include.

10. The Roots Rising Down – For the sake of diversity, this was my favorite rap album of 2008 (yes even more than Weezy, waaaaaaaaaaaay more than Weezy).

    i got some recommendations for you:
    – “the seldom seen kid” by elbow
    – “little joy” by little joy
    – “all you need is mosh” by plastilina mosh
    – “með suð í eyrum við spilum” by sigur rós
