It’s that time of year, a time full of lists. I was just talking to someone the other day about our favorite records/movies of last year and we agreed that it was a somewhat slow year for music. Still some great stuff but nothing like this year could be (with new U2 and Springsteen!).
So here’s some of my favorite records of last year, in no particular order…
Favorite albums 2008
Radiohead: In Rainbows (yes, I realize this was my favorite record of the year before… but it came out in stores in 08 so it counts! and it’s ridiculously amazing)
Bob Dylan: Tell Tale Signs (a great collection of outtakes from the Lanois sessions… Oh Mercy/Time Out of Mind)
Brian Wilson: That Lucky Old Sun
Beck: Modern Guilt
Neil Diamond: Home Before Dark
Bon Iver: For Emma, Forever Ago
Fleet Foxes: Fleet Foxes
She & Him: Volume One (this one surprised me)
Vampire Weekend: Vampire Weekend
Coldplay: Viva La Vida
Gnarls Barkley: The Odd Couple
Ok, that’s it for now. I might put up a favorite movie list after I see a few more but I think Dark Knight is still the one to beat. I’ll also be posting news soon about how you can download my new EP right here for free!
Hope y’all are having a great New Year and go Ravens!
