As mentioned here Friday, I had asked a few music-related friends to submit their best of 2008 top 10 lists. The next to send their list to me is Pete Greenberg, the very smart and friendly booker at Chop Suey.
Pete's top 10 albums of 2008 "that made my head spin (in a good way)" are:
1. Frightened Rabbit - Midnight Organ Fight
2. Fleet Foxes - Fleet Foxes
3. Sigur Ros - Med Sud I Eryum Vid Spilum Endalaust
4. The Walkmen - You & Me
5. The Notwist - The Devil, You + Me
6. The Raveonettes - Lust Lust Lust
7. Lykke Li - Youth Novels
8. The Magnetic Fields - Distortion
9. Mates of State - Re-Arrange Us
10. Mitch Hedberg - Do You Believe in Gosh?
Pete also gave honorable mentions to The Gutter Twins' Saturnalia, Goldfrapp's Seventh Tree, The Hold Steady's Stay Positive, and Calexico's Carried to Dust.
