OK folks, its been a while, but 2008, well, it has been quite a busy year. So, I feel like I've missed a lot of music this year, mostly thanks to either being preoccupied by politics and baseball (or both) or trying to get a permanent job thingy.
So … what have I missed?
Tell me what album from 2008 should I have purchased months (or days) ago. You can assume I've heard/bought a lot of the big ones (Portishead, Breeders, TV on the Radio, etc.), but where are the gems?
Currently, on my list of "need to purchase" are:
- Bon Iver
- Mongrel (might be UK only)
- Friendly Fires
- The Bug
- Department of Eagles
- (and sadly, Matthew Sweet, Lil Wayne and Beck … maybe?)
