2008 was an interesting musical, and personal, year for me. I listened to a lot of indie rock, electronica and went to a shit-ton of shows (one of which was the best I've ever seen, thanks Of Montreal).
If you're in need of some respite from the blustery wet weather, might I suggest dropping by the Triple Door tonight?
The blistering, sometimes frenetic guitar stylings and pounding drums of Marnie Stern are going to sound so awesome through the Triple Door's sound system.
This video has a not-entirely-dissimilar aesthetic to "Sledgehammer" and "Money for Nothing."
Since I have the time and am not terribly anxious to go outside in the rain again but am looking to start an argument or two, here's my list of my top 10 albums of the year, with YouTube-age of my favorite song from each album (where available).
Watching Stern live is a unique experience. When she's onstage she moves her fingertips up and down the neck of her guitar and gets sounds from it that appear possessed at times.
