2008 individual lists!!!!

mcglynn’s list

honorable mentions

i did not feel that i could technically include these “albums” on the list, but they nonetheless dominated my ipod in ’08

santogold and diplo – top ranking

paper rout gangstaz – fear and loathing in hunts vegas (sampler)

sinden’s weekly radio show on k.i.s.s. fm in london!!!!!!!!!!!!

best albums of 2008

11. jamie lidell – jim
(pretty awesome album / but i still prefer the live show)

10. the hold steady – stay positive
(good summer time record, kept me rocking on the grill)

09. tv on the radio – dear science
(never really got into this band before this one, i am into them now)

08. okkervil river – the stand ins
(gordo talked up okkervil’s release from last year – so i figured i would check this one out. glad i did)

07. deerhunter – microcastle
(another band that i never really got into, but this album is pretty sick)

06. notwist – the devil, you, + me
(many of you guys could not get into this one. i feel that it is a logical step after the wonderful “neon golden”. the devil is a good album, don’t sleep on it! /// and the live show…shit)

05. ra ra riot – the rhumb line
(listened to this one so many time this year, but we will see if lasts the test of time)

04. of montreal – skeletal lamping
(like notwist, i feel that this album was way under-rated. i like it better then “hissing fauna” (i know blasphemy)).

03. walkmen – you & me
(2008……..the year of bands that glynnie never could get into…that made awesome albums in 08).

02. m83 – saturdays = youth
(like ra ra riot this is an album that i listened to so many times in 08).

01. various artists – body language (vol. 6) mixed by the junior boys
(??????????????, yeah i know. what the hell is this. it’s the album that i came home to every friday night, after a long week, to an empty house…and it made me feel good. got me motivated to hit the philly streets on the solo tip. it is by far, my favorite album of 2008….check it out, i am sure you have not hear it).
