CROWD PARTICIPATION

I love the end of the year. It's a time for perusing various magical musical world wide websites and fantastic forums, reading every Jim, Roger and Barbara's favourite albums of the past 12 months, catching up with what I missed. Oh, and there's a Christmas somewhere too apparently now???//
Anyway, in that spirit, here's a couple of puddles of what I really liked this year. In no discernible order, of course.

Venetian Snares - 'Detrimentalist'
Fucked Up - The Chemistry Of Common Life
Stereolab - Chemical Chords
Desalvo - Mood Poisoner
Fleet Foxes - Fleet Foxes
sBach - sBach
Make Believe - Going To The Bone Church
Vivian Girls - Vivian Girls

AND NOW IS THE TIME FOR THE WALL OF CUDDLES:
POST IN THE DAMN COMMENTS YOUR GOOD RECORDS OF THE YEAR 2008! PLEASE!!!! SHOW US YOUR TASTES!!!
