Fer’s Best Albums of 2008

Saturday, January 24th, 2009 || fewr

Deprecated: preg_replace(): The /e modifier is deprecated, use preg_replace_callback instead in /home/klic/public_html/vt/wp-includes/formatting.php on line 82


So, this is my list of best albums of 2008 among other stuff. I originally planned to have this done by the 15 of January, but it took much more time than I expected. I hope that you not only don’t find it too tiring, but also have fun clicking links.
F


Albums of 2008:

1. Beyond the Wizard’s Sleeve Ark 1

Why?: Old mostly unknown psychedelic rock songs updated by Erol Alkan and someone else (can’t remember his name). If you haven’t bought it then all you can do is hope Rough Trade makes more copies.
Best Tracks: Electric Bananas // Aglarsa Anam Aglar // Bubble Burst // Winter in June
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dxf-LeEc0uo

 

 

 

2. Devotchka - A Mad and Faithful Telling

I saw them live and they’re really good. The central theme of the album is God. I shiver when I listen to it for some reason.
Clockwise Witness // Transliterator // Blessing in Disguise // Undone
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PvpJdVhTwhg

 

 

3. Fleet Foxes - Fleet Foxes (Album) + Sun Giant (EP)

Appalachian Beach Boys. Get the EP then the album.
Drops in the River (EP) // Mykonos (EP) // White Winter Hymnal (album) // He Doesn’t Know Why (album) // Your Protector (album)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k3r197bkkNo

 

 

 

4. Sonny J - Disastro


Really good stuff. Didn’t get the exposure it deserved.
Handsfree (If You Hold My Hand) // Can’t Stop Moving // Enfant Terrible
I love the video btw: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4d4L4hiSHNw

 

 

4. MGMT - Oracular Spectacular

#

A bit camp and repetitive, but fun.
Kids // Electric Feel // Time to Pretend
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UtUI5MC9tVM

 

 

 

 

 

 


Good albums that almost made it, but are still worth a listen:

 

Welcome Wagon - Welcome to the Welcome Wagon


If you’re still waiting for something by Sufjan Stevens, get this album (he’s producer and arranger). Listen to the covers first, then check out the rest of the stuff.
Half a Person (Smiths) // Jesus (Velvet Underground) // Up on a Mountain // Sold to the Nice Rich Man
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Tzudi_i94E

 

 


Santogold - Santogold

I was expecting M.I.A., instead got something more similar to the Pixies.
Lights Out // L.E.S. Artistes // Say Aha // I’m a Lady
Another great video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TwNkuw-YTVo

 

 

Bon Iver - For Emma, Forever Ago

Be patient, it gets better the more you listen to it, and it’s well worth the effort. Still reminds me of Ilkley Moor.
Skinny Love // For Emma // Creature Fear
Skinny Love w Jools Holland: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JfAS6nwYc9g

 

 

Ladyhawke - Ladyhawke


Fun, catchy and cheesy.
Paris is Burning // Dusk Til’ Dawn // Back of the Van
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F1HDZNR9cY4

 

 

 

El Guincho - Alegranza!


An easy introduction to the Animal Collective/Panda Bear style of music, only this has got Brazillian and African music in it as well. El Guincho sings in Spanish, but it took me dozens of listens to start understanding what he says. One last thing, he never mentions the words “amor” or “corazón.”
Prez Lagarto // Palmitos Park // Kalise // Antillas
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mTJYj_uL1NQ

 

 

Mexican Institute of Sound - Piñata

I thought Mexicans were incapable of this level of creativity: the music is interesting (both samples of old stuff, and the stuff he adds), the lyrics are funny, and his videos are worth watching. I’m proud of this album.
Katia, Tania, Paulina y la Kim // Escríbeme Pronto // Belludita // El Micrófono
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-fZX_3J_Ykk
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1cU4W8nWhjU
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aTBZICp5BFk
