I think this is turning into a very music-focused blog. And you know what, I don't really mind.
So with that in mind, here's my rough Top Ten songs of 2008 (in no particular order):
Foals - Cassius
A powerhouse of a tune and as catchy as hell. A bit on the homoerotic side and is a real treat live.
MGMT - Kids
Addictive. So addictive.
Vampire Weekend - A-Punk
Simple and beautiful.
Slipknot - Pyschosocial
Heavy, personal and aggressive. Slipknot at their best.
Does It Offend You, Yeah? - We Are Rockstars
Another electro dance punk outfit that seems destined for greatness.
Adele - Hometown Glory
I was introduced to this song on 'Skins,' and have been in love with it since.
Tubelord - I Am Azerrad
Genius. In a state of fits.
Kings Of Leon - Sex On Fire
Their first proper anthem, and what a song. This is perfection from the long-underrated band.
Olafur Arnalds - Fok
Aah. Neo-classical music. Brought to you by the talented 21-year-old.
The Verve - Love Is Noise
This song keeps getting stuck in my head, over and over again.
Over and out
Now playing: The Verve - Love Is Noise
