Just one more Best of 2008 list...

Every year Young Adult author, David Levithan (Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist) asks his friends to list their favorite music (CDs and songs) of the previous year. I truly enjoy the list because someone always mentions something I missed. The winner in 2008 was the debut by Vampire Weekend. The Top Ten also included Fleet FoxesBon IverSigur Ros, and Portishead. Since it is the 10th Anniversary of the "David Music Poll" he asked each of us to also list our Top Ten in the past ten years. Check out all the selections at the David Music Poll Blog.

Thanks for this post and link to the list. I sure do like Sigur Ros. I will check out Vampire Weekend.

I think Portishead is one of the most consistently underrated fantastic bands I know of. I've heard only a bit by Vampire Weekend, wasn't as much of a fan.
