(2008 end-of-year lists) – MARC CODSI

I asked the main actors of this here blog (mostly musicians, of course, but also friends, family, support-givers…) to provide me with a list (5 to 20 albums) of their favorite records of the year.

The results are slowly coming in. There are surprises, resemblances, similarities, incongruous choices… I’ve left the responses intact, exactly as I received them, along with my friends’ comments. So here goes:

Marc Codsi: musician (Lumi)

“Voici donc un top 10 tout frais
J”ai rajoute un ptit commentaire sur certains, tu peux les enlever si tu preferes…”

-10-Ra Ra Riot: ‘The Rhumb Line’ (A very pleasant Album to listen to on repeat)
-9-Leila: Blood, Looms and Blooms
-8-Sigu Rus: með suð í eyrum við spilum endalaust
-7-Vampire Week end-Vampire Week end (Who would have thought that African inspired Rock can become Mainstream!)
6-Max Richter: ’24 postcards In Full colors’ (which is actually not an album but a collection of Ringtones!!)
-5-Goldfrapp: Seventh Tree
-4-Beck-Modern Guilt (has served good purpose)
-3-The Ting tings: We invented nothing (Indeed but it’s so good)
-2-MGMT: Oracular Spectacular (Definitely the discovery of 2008! thank you Brooklyn)
-1-Portishead: Three (it’s very rare that an album like that comes out nowadays, every three to five year maybe in my opinion)
