BEST OF 2008

It is finally here... It took an incredible effort to actually compile this final list. In some cases it was even more difficult than last years', as I've listened to even more music in 2008. Feels like my mission has been accomplished and 2009 can be started off fresh. But not before I catch up to all the music that I missed myself! Anyway, here it is, just a click away!

Headphone Commute's Best of 2008

Holy frakkin' crap. Fordlandia just demolished me. It's a beautiful record.

Props for including Subheim, Blackfilm, Snares, The Flashbulb and many others... (I'll just pretend Vampire Weekend is a typo.)

Have you by any chance heard Emergence by Trifonic or Sound Object Deconditioning by Choc?

Vampire Weekend was in the Indie category (before they became mainstream) which I happened to cover a bit too...

Haven't heard Trifonic -or- Choc. Will have to check it out.
