Team Goldie Album Cover

Team Goldie

Team Goldie - Matt DiStefano

Favorite 8 Records Of '08:
1. Brooke Waggoner - Heal For The Honey
Simply beautiful. If the end of the album opener doesn't send chills up and down your spine I'm relatively certain you have no soul.

2. Polar Bear Club - Sometimes Things Just Disappear
This was on my list last year too. I don't care.
3. Kanye West - 808s & Heartbreak
Kanye gets his Thom Yorke on with an ambient, introspective, break-up record? I'm sold.

4. Ra Ra Riot - The Rhumb Line
They just keep getting better. Beyond excited that many other people are starting to realize it.
5. Lykke Li - Youth Novels
The additional tracks shoehorned into the US release make it feel a tad lengthy but the original release is about as perfect as an indie-pop album can get.
6. Coldplay - Viva La Vida or Death And All His Friends
I'm not embarrassed about any of the music that I love (but if I was Coldplay would probably top the list.)
7. The Cool Kids - The Bake Sale
Reminds me why I started listening to hip-hop in the first place.
8. The Gaslight Anthem - The '59 Sound
Reminds me why I started listening to punk-rock in the first place.

and making it 25...

Polar Bear Club's album was technically released this year and last year, so it's okay to spread the PBC love. Mostly because that album is absolutely great.
