2008×100: Disorientation We Can Believe In

Filed under: Music

Finally: my year-end 100-song playlist/mix. Not necessarily my top 100 — Young Jeezy didn’t create my favorite track of the year, and Erykah Badu’s way higher on my list than #100 — but a 100-artist, 100-song representation of what 2008 sounded like to me (with occasional allowances made for song-to-song flow over what was big, hence the Santogold “deep cut” and a still-great Roots track that isn’t “75 Bars”). Your mileage may vary, since you might actually like Matadorian trad-indie more than doom/sludge metal or minimal techno more than scuzzy electro trash, but this is my thing and maybe there’s some stuff on it that is also your thing. That would be cool.

Apparently I’m pretty good at blogging consistently if it’s < 140 characters at a time. Also when it’s in the service of blabbing about weird YouTube music stuff.

(More stuff to show up here later, incl. but not limited to my 2008×100 tracklisting and I don’t know some other junk, we’ll see)
