I'm really bad at year-end top ten lists as a general rule, because I always seem to end up listening to more old music than new music.
So instead of the usual top ten, here's five of my favorite releases from 2008, and five older favorites that I've totally been wearing out this year. The 2008 releases are listed first.
BOAT - Topps EP
Death Cab for Cutie - Narrow Stairs
Nik Freitas - Sun Down
The Mountain Goats & Kaki King - Black Pear Tree EP
Telekinesis! - Toulouse Lautrec EP
Broadcast - Tender Buttons
Built to Spill - There's Nothing Wrong with Love
Pedro the Lion - It's Hard to Find a Friend
Emitt Rhodes - Emitt Rhodes
Spoon - A Series of Sneaks
