Top Albums of 2008

Let's keep this short and sweet. If you have not heard these albums I suggest you give them a listen. (The list appears in no particular order.)

Jamie Lidell 'Jim'

He has done no wrong for my ears since I first heard his croon on the Supercollider albums. I just get sad waiting for the next album to drop.

Buraka Som Sistema 'Black Diamond'

Kuduro from Portugal. Bass heavy beats and aggressive vocals.

Hercules And Love Affair 'Hercules And Love Affair'

What more can be said for this debut? Disco shuffle, classic house swagger and Antony.

TV On The Radio 'Dear Science'

Third album from the creators of sewer soul and spiritual nouveau.

The Airborne Toxic Event 'The Airborne Toxic Event'

Best thing to happen to indie rock since 'Funeral.'

Machines Don't Care 'Machines Don't Care'

A thunder-dome of the masters of Fidget, Bassline, Grime and all other bang your head in beats. Headed by Josh Herve the first album includes production and vocal work by Trevor Loveys, Sinden, Drop The Lime, Detboi, Toddla T, Fake Blood and Affie Yusef.

Don Diablo 'Life Is A Festival'

Still an import only from Amsterdam, this album is like Justin Timberlake, Calvin Harris and INXS in a blender- add a little Baltimore Club and throbbing electro and you might be close to the recipe. Ladies and Boyz get ready to swoon over this heart throb.

The Bug 'London Zoo'

The darkest pits of the London underground on one album. Check it.
