2008 -The best so far?
Another, oh five months or so, and everyone'll be making their lists of the best of the year.
As 17 Seconds progresses, I have heard about seventy new albums this year alreadt, as well as masses of tracks, and face the task of trying to put it all in order for the end of the year. It does feel like it's been a good decade for music so far, in fact; BTW did the nineties ever go through a phase of being out or was it accepted that it had been pretty good overall? There have been one or two rubbish albums -I never want to hear the Black Mountain album again, frankly, but there has been some great stuff.
Anyway, this is a Top 10 tracks of the year so far for me:
1. Wedding Present - 'The Trouble With Men.' mp3
2. MGMT - 'Time To Pretend.' mp3
3. Santogold - 'My Superman.' mp3
4. Jamie Lidell -'Another Day.' mp3
5. Kills -'Cheap and Cheerful.' mp3
6. Dom DeLuca -'Birds Of Worry.' mp3
7. Hayman Watkins Trout and Lee -'Sly and the Family Stone.' mp3
8. Vampire Weekend -'The Kids Don't Stand A Chance.' mp3
9. Neon Neon -'I Lust U.' mp3
10.Rustie -'Mic Of The Year.' mp3
See what you make of it, comments welcome, but do not assume that it will be the same come December. Oh, and anyone who thinks that there is only ever white middle class indie boys with guitars on this blog is not paying attention!
Hope things are drier wherever you are than they are down here...
