The Best Music of 2008

Bon Iver

Which albums, songs or shows had you raving in 2008? Find out what our Kellsee Chu chose as this year’s best:

Best Albums

1. Bon Iver - For Emma, Forever Ago:  Bon Iver is Justin Vernon who recorded this album out in the remote Wisconsin cabin where he lived for 3 months.  The result is this gorgeous album filled with songs about lost and love.  If being isolated in a cabin in Wisconsin can produce music like this, I’m all for him going back there permanently.  Bonus points to Vernon for his beautiful cover of Okkervil River’s “Blue Tulip.”

2. Ra Ra Riot - The Rhumb Line:  Their drummer John Pike died last year in a drowning accident, but this band decided to go on and it was the right decision. It’s an album full of catchy tunes. “Can You Tell” and “Dying is Fine” are excellent.

A definite conversation-starter, and it’s perfect for that geologist-who-has-everything. And yes, they’re real stones. Pricing information is currently unavailable, so stay tuned…
