tk’s top 10 albums of 2008
My 2008 list and I get along well. We still do.
It featured a few more obvious picks like Fleet Foxes, TV on the Radio, and Bon Iver and a few overlooked gems from The War on Drugs, Plants and Animals, and The Week that Was. It also featured a few 80s throwbacks in the form of M83 and Cut Copy and the album that you’ll dig out 20 years from now and call a masterpiece, Shearwater’s Rook. Even Randy Newman made the cut for his solid release, Harps and Angels, in which he reminded the music world that he’s still ‘got it.’
