Three Imaginary Girls

Seattle's Indie-Pop Press – Music Reviews, Film Reviews, and Big Fun

I’m a chronic procrastinator, so here it is, January 5th, and I’m finally ready to make sense of the musical chaos and wonderment that was 2008 and compile a list of favorites.

Don’t even try to make me rank these releases in order, or I’ll never, ever finish my list. Let’s just say these were some of the very best local bands in my iTunes list this year, presented alphabetically.
