Best of 2008

Flatlander got his list destroyed by the RIAA. Let me see if I can sidestep big brother a bit and get my favorites out to you. These aren't strictly releases from the previous year, but do represent my 9 heavy listens in the year of 08.

Angus & Julia Stone - A Book Like This
The Beast

Sera Cahoone - Only as the Day is Long
Only as the Day is Long

Fleet Foxes - Fleet Foxes
Heard them Stirring

Delta Spirit - Ode to Sunshine

Miracle Fortress - Five Roses
Hold Your Secrets in Your Heart

Bon Iver - For Emma, Forever Ago

Wye Oak - If Children
If Children Were Wolves

Plants & Animals - Parc Avenue
Feedback in the Field

The Dodos - Visiter

I didn't make a list, but if I had Bon Iver and Wye Oak would have been on it, too.

great list! one questions though -- the Wye Oak song is (I'm pretty sure) called If Children Were Wishes, not If Children Were Wolves, though that could be an equally compelling song title.
