Thanks for the great post guys. Really great music here. I have several of these albums (I am a huge MGMT fan after discovering them on a trip to NY a few months back) but I haven’t heard of a few of these bands and I really loved the music.

I just picked up the new Wintersleep album too and have been listening to that a lot. The second song on the album, Archaeologist is a big favorite of mine. Thought you might dig it.

Thanks again for the great suggestions.

Hey Chris. Thanks for the comment. I’m not too familiar with Wintersleep… I’ll have to check them out. I added a couple more bands to the list. Friendly Fires I recently saw here in Chicago open for Lykke Li, and they were really entertaining. If anyone has any more favorites from ’08, let us know!

The new Parts & Labor album: Receiver, is really good. I also absolutely love the new T.V. On The Radio album (Dear Science). The new Wolf Parade album (At Mount Zoomer) was another favorite of mine this year.

Oh yeah and the new Deerhunter album (Microcastle) was pretty good.
