my 2008 album faves.

January 2, 2009

Here are my picks for music that are SO last year:

• My VERY favorite album is by TV on the Radio and their album Dear Science. Couldn’t get enough of this. Here’s a link to their video Providence.

• Next in line is Noah and the Whale’s album Peaceful, the World Lays Me Down {even though I’m REALLY bummed to hear their song on a Saturn commercial…that’s usually is a deal-breaker for me}. Here’s a link to a video of their song “Shape of my Heart”.

• Next is The Heavy and Great Vengeance and Furious Fire. I listened to this disk for about 3 months straight. Here’s a vid:

• Next is Helio Sequence and Keep Your Eyes Ahead. This is one of my favorite songs:

• Vampire Weekend’s self titled album is my next fave. What I love even more than their poppy music is their 80’s garb. They personify geek chic. Here’s a video:

Because I need to stop at some point, I’ll just leave it at my top 5. Though, I was also loving Lykke Li, Frightened Rabbit, Miles Benjamin Anthony Robinson, The Dodos, Why?, and last-but-not-least Flight of the Conchords {hilarious EVERY time I listen}.

So there you have it. Let me know what you think!
