So it's 2009 and you know everyone is talking about their favorite music of 2008. Well, I'm freaking out because I discovered Music Blog Zeitgeist 2008 on Hype Machine. If you've never heard of Hype Machine, oh man you are missing out. It's the place to go to find the music people are blogging about. It's awesome. I use it all the time. And now they have this amazing thing going on right now. They've got the top artists, songs and my absolute favorite, top 50 albums of the year. You can stream all 50 albums for freeeee! Yes, I'm freaking out over here. Also, you know what makes me even more ecstatic? Top album of 2008 is Fleet Foxes!!! I adore them. Got their album for Christmas and haven't hardly listened to anything else since. It's so beautiful. You have to take a listen. Last night I streamed Blitzen Trapper, which is pretty amazing as well. I'm digging their song Furr. (And that video is aaaamazing.) And right now I'm listening to TV on the Radio who rock my little socks off. I love that group and their new album is rad. Yes, rad. I am full of love right now. And yes, I should get back to sewing now. But at least I've got tons of music to keep me company through the day. I have a feeling I'm going to be spending money I probably shouldn't be spending on new amazing albums. But hey, it supports the artist, so I shouldn't feel too bad about it. Have a lovely and musical weekend!
p.s. I can't stop listening to this either.
