I am having trouble with some narrowing down my top lists. how do i deal with bands just hearing now? or ones discovered just after 2008 ended but released then? I should have a short list this weekend and also my goats, overrated and busts for the year then too.
Check out the side for a list of what i have heard and bought.
Anyone have any thoughts on Ida maria or Florence + The Machine?
