Music Monday - 12/29/08

It's the last Music Monday post of the year. Actually, it may be the last Music Monday post ever. I'm sure I'll post about music at times, but I would rather post when I feel inspired and have something great to share, not just because it's Monday. But this week, it's Monday AND I have something great to share.

I think I could write a year of posts on NPRs programs, there are that many good ones. All Songs Considered is a great show for hearing old favorites or finding new artists. It's the end of the year, so naturally they have compiled a Listener's Pick of the Year's Best Music. Do you agree? What's missing?

2. Vampire Weekend by Vampire Weekend
3. For Emma, Forever Ago by Bon Iver
4. Dear Science by TV on the Radio
5. Narrow Stairs by Death Cab for Cutie

15. Consolers of the Lonely by The Raconteurs

I'm a little sad about the end of music monday's. I've really enjoyed all the new music you've sent my way. Please feel free to send anything else my way.

There are about two of those albums I don't know, and I am going to get them now!

listening to Fleet Foxes right now.

Bon Iver....he spoke to my soul in a big way.

Please keep us up to date on your cool finds, even if it's not every Monday, I haven't had the chance to keep up on my music as I should! I depend upon you!!

I started listening to NPR's best debut albums of 2008 just as a Thao and the Get Down Stay Down song begins. Couldn't agree more. I saw them twice this year and loved their show both times.

hi! great list. i'm totally in line with most of them. what's missing is (in my opinion) the newest albums that came out this year from: dr. dog, the gaslight anthem, frightened rabbit, department of eagles, and m83.

I did have a deep affair with vampire weekend. That was nice. And now I'm MGMTing. go NPR.
