Podcast #2 – Top 20 songs of 2008 (by Ed)

“Secret Eyes” by Cloetta Paris on Skywriting Records gets my Number 1 for 2008. I can’t tell you the countless times I’ve played this album since it was released back in April. I wouldn’t say I’m a big Italo disco fan (okay, I do love Sally Shapiro as well, so maybe that automatically qualifies me?). I’d be more apt to say I’m a Roger Gunnarsson fan (aka Clive Reynolds, Free Loan Investments, Nixon, etc). I can hear his influence all over this record. Genius!

Top 10 albums of 2008
1. Cloetta Paris – Secret Eyes (Skywriting)
2. Thieves Like Us – Play Music (SeaYou)
3. Auburn Lull – Begin Civil Twilight (Darla)
4. Moscow Olympics – Cut The World (Lavender Recordings)
5. British Sea Power – Do You Like Rock Music? (Rough Trade)
6. M83 – Saturdays = Youth (Mute)
7. Air France – No Way Down (Sincerely Yours)
8. autoKratz – Down & Out In Paris & London (Kitsuné)
9. Julie Ocean – Long Gone and Nearly There (Transit of Venus)
10. Twig – Life After Ridge (Plastilina)
