26th December 2008

Around New Years I always compile a disc of the songs I loved throughout the year. Here is this years list: (Please note these songs were not necessarily recorded or released in 2008, but a lot of them were.) 

Ray Lamontagne, You Are the Best Thing

Blitzen Trapper, Furr

Bon Iver, Skinny Love

Coldplay, Viva la Vida

Keaton Simons, Without Your Skin

Mason Jennings, I Love You and Budda Too

Bob Schneider, Captain Kirk

Greg Laswell, What a Day

Blitzen Trapper, Ballad of Bird Love 

John Craigie, Somewhere She Can’t Find Me

Vampire Weekend, Oxford Comma

William Fitzsimmons, Passion Play

Bon Iver, Creature Fear

Paul Curreri, Keep Your Master’s Voice in Your Mouth

Josh Dion Band, Movin’ On

OneRepublic, Goodbye, Apathy

Estelle, American Boy (this song just makes you want to dance!)

My favorite live show of the year was Ray Lamontagne at Radio City Music Hall on October 11th. I generally prefer to see him at smaller venues, but this particular show was pretty amazing.
