First of all, i hope all my readers had a fantastic christmas & new year break. 2009.. damn, it's like 1999 but.. ten years later. Oh boy how time flies. Unlike a lot of other people, i actually thought 2008 was a damn fine year in music. It introduced me to a handful of great new groups and artists including Fleet Foxes, Black Mountain, Crystal Antlers, Bon Iver & Ancestors, just to name a few. Below you will find a list of my favourite albums (in no particular order) from the year that was, i might even get around to uploading some of them soon.
