The Walkmen

I saw The Walkmen a couple of years ago at the 9:30 Club and it was a pretty great show. Before their bass cut out. But that's beyond the point. Hamilton's vocals are great. And Matt, well, Matt may just be the greatest drummer alive.

top ten of 2008 + my latest obsession (of which they are legion)

Before we get started, you fuckers best be downloading this shit. I don't do this for my health, yknow? Now that that's out of the way...



I dig this. The album is gorgeous. All lush and discordant, it's pretty wild. People have been complaining about the guy's voice, which I totally get. But I think it's great and I think it works so well with these songs. I told someone that Vampire Weekend had made the most cohesive and consistent album this year. I quite love this album much much more.

my top ten of 2008

10. EAGLE NEBULA - COSMIC HEADPHONES


9. COOL KIDS - BAKE SALE


8. VAMPIRE WEEKEND - S/T


7. JON BRION - SYNECDOCHE, NY


6. ANIMAL COLLECTIVE - WATER CURSES EP


5. ASHER ROTH - THE GREENHOUSE EFFECT VOL. 1


4. PORTISHEAD - THIRD


3. GUILTY SIMPSON - ODE TO THE GHETTO


2. PARENTHETICAL GIRLS - ENTANGLEMENTS



AND NUMBER ONE IS.......



1. EMMY THE MOTHERFUCKIN GREAT!!!!!!!!!



How can I not love a girl wearing a Municipal Waste shirt (regardless how much they suck)? Okay, so technically her album comes out next year and technically she released her 'First Love EP' this year (which is awesome), but I've downloaded enough songs to constitute an album and a half, and lemme tell you, every single song is amazing. Album, EP...she is absolutely my most favorite thing about music this year.
