Essential Albums of 2008 (Part 1.)

THE ESSENTIAL ALBUMS OF 2008 to date, and some that are worth noting but didn't make the cut. (Part 1)
Keeping in my theme of maintaing a dead and sad blog I will resort to an album cover countdown with a brief overview.
12. Santogold - Santogold

Bitch got spunk and brings the loopy, mind snagging beats that make this normally unlikeable genre work wonders for me. Surprised by how much I enjoy the zeal in this music, like MIA without the politics.

11. Alegranza - El Guincho

Think Animal Collective meets dancehall at a South American weekend festival where Girl Talk stares on in amazement. It's so bizarre that's it is irresistable. It won't hit you at first, but let it simmer and you'll grow en fuego.

10. Songs in A & E - Spiritualized

Post Verve, Oasis, U2 and better than Coldplay, Spiritualized crack a name and enter the pop elite ranks. Beautiful songs, sweeping structure and simplistic melodies that flow and elvole where many of the peers go flat.

9. Gone Ain't Gone - Tim Fite

What can I say, I am a sucker for Fite. He returns to his folk, rock, hip-hop, counrty, preaching ways after his stab at the indusrty Hip-Hop run. The arrangements in this work are off the wall but it's the lyrics and heart that not only draws you in, but holds you hostage.

8. All We Could Do Was Sing - Port O'Brien

The other Pacific Northwest folk heroes of the year. Just good music all around, soothing and well versed. In an era where the more complex it is the more interest it garners, Port reminds that often times the basics are the best.

7. Nouns - No Age

Like Zoinks Scoob, I've got no idea whats going on here! Fuzz your mind with this amazing redition of everything you like about modern pop rock music, turned on its ear with the speakers humming late into the night loud enough to make the neighbors go deaf so they won't call the cops.

Coming after the 4th weekend 6-1

Post any comments on my selections, ideas and predictions on what's to come or just talk shit about how bad of a blogger I have been as of late.
