2008 Highlights – Music Edition

The list is not in any preferential order — Song previews will expire eventually, so don’t be bummed if you get an error message — If you read this off facebook, you may not be able to see the music player.

HIGHLIGHTS IN MUSIC : Live and/or Recorded

Portishead (album: third — for being gently psychadelic and violently catchy at the same time)
Radiohead
(live tour and best b-side ever — for being the best concert I’ve ever been to in my life and giving us the gift of Bangers and Mash)
The Luyas
(album: faker death — for being so delicate you could break them)
Parlovr
(album: parlovr and live shows — for being the catchiest act in town)
Deerhunter
(album: Microcastle — for being just great)
Aimee Mann
(album: @!#!@$ Smilers — for being  both compelling and lyrically fascinating)
Sigur Ros
(live tour : despite my general disinterest in their last album, their live show delivered the most emotional 10 minutes I’ve ever experience in my concert-going life)
Benjamin Biolay
(album: Trash YéYé and live tour —  for being so subtle and referential on his new record, and for delivering a surprisingly rocking live performance) (myspace)
