See the full playlist here. I added Jay Reatard's "Matador Singles '08" as an honorable mention in the middle of the show. If it weren't a compilation it would have placed highly on my year-end list.

Grant's #1 albums of the year:

2007: LCD Soundsystem - Sound of Silver
2008: Cut Copy - In Ghost Colours

You're showing a real weakness for electronic.

In a battle between the years, which is the better album?

Indeed, I do have a weakness for "electronica", especially if it somehow involves DFA.

I enjoy In Ghost Colours more right now, but I feel like Sound of Silver will probably go down as a more important album if that makes any sense.
