Years Ending Require Lists

2008 was a good year for indie rock, and reissues as well though most of those i've left off this list to make room for the indieness. nothing dominated my stereo this year but lots of highly enjoyable stuff flowed through...here's what comes to mind immediately...

Son, Ambulance - Someone Else’s Deja Vu
Fucked Up - Chemistry of Common Life
Jay Reatard - Matador Singles
Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds - Dig!!! Lazarus Dig!!!
Santogold - Santogold
Times New Viking - Rip It Off
Nigeria Special -Modern Highlife, Afro Sounds, & Nigerian Blues 1970-76
Jenny Lewis - Acid Tongue
No Age - Nouns
Hot Chip - Made In the Dark
Bob Dylan - Tell Tale Signs
Jamie Lidell - Jim
Orchestra Baobab - Made in Dakar
Vampire Weekend - s/t
Stereolab - Chemical Chords
Bon Iver - For Emma Forever Ago
Anthony Braxton - Complete Arista Recordings
Surf City - Surf City EP

of course what i listened to the most was all the stuff that came out on Merge, but if i included that here there'd be no room for anything else.

and #1 on all lists for the year of course is OBAMA...

happy holidays everyone!
