all songs considered compiled a best of 08′ thus far for last week’s show. topping the list? panic and the disco, mgmt, girl talk, and frightened rabbit. cant say i disagree. santogold even made the list!
ive heard a lot about panic’s new album, and i have to say, im pretty impressed. it’s hard to dismiss all the beatles mentions in reviews: in their soph effort, the band is much more self aware, subdued and mature -there’s a definite beach boys-esque feel that works really well. the record, pretty odd, was put out by pete wentz’s fueled by ramen imprint, decaydance records. looks like the emo kids are growing up.
check out the show here: http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=92283650 for tracks that fans loved, but the show missed.
what are your faves of 08? ill post some of mine over the next few days.
