Buried In A Good Mix Tape #3: Best Of 2008...


Another mix inspired.

I wound up pulling together a two-disc compilation of my favorite songs of 2008. Some of the songs I used were from albums that didn’t make it to the Best Of list, results of decent songs winding up on lackluster or “so so” albums. I was happy with how it turned out.

Disc 1 —

French Miami - God Damn Best (French Miami)
WHY? - Good Friday (Alopecia)
Wire - Circumspect (Object 47)
Eagles Of Death Metal - High Voltage (Heart On)
These Are Powers - Chipping Ice (Taro Tarot EP)
Ten Kens - Downcome Home (Ten Kens)
Carlos y Gaby - Hot Heavy Heat (A Chase Theme) (La Voz Sabia De Los Cosmos)
Bauhaus - Endless Summer Of The Damned (Go Away White)
Dub Trio - Regression Line (Another Sound Is Dying)
The Gutter Twins - Seven Stories Underground (Saturnalia)
Man Man - Poor Jackie (Rabbit Habits)
Mike Patton - A Dream Of Roses (A Perfect Place)
Beck - Replica (Modern Guilt)
Panther - Glamorous War (14kt God)
Marnie Stern - The Crippled Jazzer (This Is It And I Am It And You Are It And So Is That And He Is It And She Is It And It Is It And That Is That)
Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds - We Call Upon The Author (Dig!!! Lazarus, Dig!!!)
Brian Wilson - Live Let Live - That Lucky Old Sun (Reprise) Medley (The Lucky Old Sun)
TV On The Radio - DLZ (Dear Science)
Aether - Variance (Artifacts)
The Roots - Rising Up (featuring Wale & Chrisette Michele) (Rising Down)

Boris - Buzz-In (Smile)
The Black Angels - Science Killer (Directions To See A Ghost)
Sic Alps - Sing Song Waitress (U.S. EZ)
Slim Cessna's Auto Club - All About The Bullfrog In Three Verses (Cipher)
Sigur Rós - Góðan Daginn (Með Suð Í Eyrum Við Spilum Endalaust)
Praveen & Benoît - Death As A Man (Song Spun Simla)
Opeth - The Lotus Eater (Watershed)
Grails - Immediate Mate (Doomsdayer's Holiday)
The Black Keys - I Got Mine (Attack & Release)
Bad Dudes - Eat Drugs (Eat Drugs)
Grampall Jookabox The Girl Ain’t Preggers (Rill Bruh EP)
Foals - The French Open (Antidotes)

Apologies for the quiet September. My time was needed everywhere but here. That said, I'm happy to end the month with some good singles ...
