2008 was a strange year for me. My favorite album Jukebox was purchased in January, and didn’t get a ton of play until the fall. My most listened to album was the extremely quiet Music For Airports (LIVE) by Bang On a Can. (My family felt very tortured). I picked up the pace with Jive Soweto, Santogold, and Army Navy. Jason Collett is one of those guys that didn’t grab me at first, but I’m still playing it a lot months later. M. Ward’s new gig She & Him is a lot of fun. I really like the noise of The Raveonettes. Gui Boratto’s Beautiful Life is very additive. Thievery Corp is Theivery Corp. I found Attack & Release a bit disappointing, but still played it a ton.
Finally, Sigur Rós continue to be amazing!
