Bright Blue Dream - {{{ Sunset }}}
I was sad to see Sound Team disband. Thankfully former bassist Bill Baird marches on.

In Ghost Colours - Cut Copy
2008 was one hell of a year for anyone wanting tunes that sound heavily influenced by 80s new wave (the new Cut Copy, MGMT, M83, Empire of the Sun, Ladyhawke).

The Evening Descends - Evangelicals
Space glam? Not something I feel safe recommending to most listeners and friends.

Abrasive post-punk that comes out hitting hard with nice droning, tribal-like rhythms. This is easily one of the more unique listens of 2008.

I like this pop change-up from Gonzalez. It’s catchy and much more memorable than prior releases.

Walking on a Dream - EMPIRE OF THE SUN
Catchy electropop that sounds similar to MGMT, but it is what you would expect from Luke Steele working with Pnau (even heard on the early collab track “wild strawberries”).

Meanderthal - Torche
Sludge pop? Stoner metal? Possibly loses “hip factor” by sounding too mainstream.

The first 2008 release I heard. It’s a grower especially if, like me, folk is one of your lesser enjoyed genres.

Faux British accent (Green Day’s been doing it for years) & often panned by others. I may have to bump this one up to a B+. Call it a guilty pleasure. I like it.
