Two Thousand and Eight

Énorme ! on est encore en 2009 et je livre ma liste des meilleurs sons de 2008 ...

1. The Mountain Goats - Heretic Pride

I made it through town somehow
But who’s going to save me now ?

How To Embrace A Swamp Creature (link removed)

2. The New Year - The New Year

To drink more, and laugh more, and sleep more, and dream more 

MMV (link removed)

3. Frightenned Rabbit - The Midnight Organ Fight

But i hate when i feel like this
And i never hated you

Poke (link removed)

4. Conor Oberst - Conor Oberst

I woke up in the age of wires

I fell asleep at the dusk of man

Souled Out !!! (link removed)

5. Okkervil River - The Stand-Ins

So, take me, I'm yours, morning starship

Bruce Wayne Campbell Interviewed On The Roof Of The Chelsea Hotel, 1979 (link removed)

6. Sigur Ros - með suð í eyrum við spilum endalaust 

Varirnar brenndu, höldumst í hendur
Ég sé þig vakinn

Ég sé þig nakinn

Inní mér syngur vitleysingur

Inní mér syngur vitleysingur (link removed)

7. Throw Me The Statue - Moonbeams

It was written in heart signs faintly
A soft hum from my dream marquee

Written In Heart Signs, Faintly (link removed)

8. Bon Iver - For Emma, Forever Ago

Go find another lover,
To bring a... to string along!
With all your lies,
You're still very lovable.

For Emma (link removed)

9. Born Ruffians - Red, Yellow And Blue

And all of the tics & tocs & clicks of clocks
That tell the time tell me this is just a phase

Barnacle Goose (link removed)

10. Sun Kil Moon - April

I came out from under her warm sheets
Into the brisk late October

Lost Verses (link removed)

11. Vampire Weekend - Vampire Weekend
His honor drove southward seeking exotica
Down to the Pueblo huts of New Mexico
Cut his teeth on turquoise harmonicas
Oh oh oh

(link removed)

12. MGMT - Oracular Spectacular
Decision to decisions are made and not bought
But I thought this wouldn’t hurt a lot,
I guess not

Kids (link removed)

13. Lightspeed Champion - Falling Off The Lavender Bridge
Or the fact that you racists are full of shit
I've got the sweet sugar but that's it.

Tell Me What It's Worth

Je préfère largement voir une excellent liste d'albums de 2008 qu'un top de blogueur de 2009 plus que douteux.
Y a que tes deux premiers que je connaissais pas, je vais goûter ça ce week-end.

Merci msieur :)

Erwan said...

J'attends avec impatience ton top 2009 (d'ici 18 mois peut-être?) ;-)

Va falloir que je réécoute le Mountain Goats parce qu'il m'avait un peu déçu alors que celui de cette année est une pure merveille.

Distance Has The Way said...

Le pire c'est que j'ai commencé a réfléchir à celui la il y a un an déjà !! ...
On se refait pas je suis super-procrastinator :)

J'ai vu ta chronique du dernier Mountain Goats sur Exit Music, c'est clairement un grand groupe ... Je t'avoues que je suis un peu a contre courant sur ce coup je remonte la discographie depuis Heretic Pride ... The Sunset Tree est devenu une drogue :)

Erwan said...

Idem, j'ai acquis Get Lonely et The Sunset Tree récemment, et reçu Tallahassee hier. Enormes tous les trois!
