Decade: 2008 - Highway '08 Revisited

Why look back? After all, I got everything exactly right, of course. But one could add:

Modest Mouse turns out to be the weird friend (from Seattle, not the Midwest) who you just can’t help but like. They’ve got staying power.

My Morning Jacket wore me down a little. His voice isn’t as annoying when he isn't straining.

My first impression of Wussy was right on. The guitars, singing and songwriting come together to make for a powerful record.

Which, in sum, makes the 2008 pantheon look something like this:




Modest Mouse

Charlie Parker


New Pornographers

Django Reinhardt

Le Tigre

Now, let's get ready for '09!
