Best Tracks of 2008: Episode 2

The countdown to our Top Albums of 2008 continues with another round of my favorite individual tracks from this year. The following songs are by a couple of artists who caught a lot of ears with their latest respective takes on rusty-folk rock. I'm sure in six months I'll look back and kick myself for not including them in my top albums. For now, the LPs are still sinking in. Oh, make a mental note to see them live next time they stop in SLC.

The Dutchess & The Duke
"Reservoir Park"

Blitzen Trapper
"God + Suicide"

  1. Thanks Anna! What about you? What individual songs did you dig this year?

  2. Panda Bear – Boneless (Remix)
    Women – Shaking Hand
    Atlas Sound – Recent Bedroom
    Beach House - Gila
    No Age – Eraser

  3. Oh individual songs are so hard for me because I listen almost always to entire albums front to back and I hardly distinguish the tracks in a memorable way. But that said, I'll make some picks:

    Bon Iver: Skinny Love
    Shearwater: Rooks
    Okkervil River: Lost Coastlines

    Those are certainly my standouts. A little sappy huh?
