Well ... I'm not a ranking type ... I don't really take to lists. So I made a mix instead.
You'll see it does not consist completely of '08 releases ... I didn't really start out with that in mind, it just so happened that along the way I found it very beneficial to revisit some of the '08 releases. I must say, it was a great year for the type of music I am most drawn to. Still, these selections are hardly a "best of" ...
If you like your german minimal nestled among some tuvan throat singing and reverberated beach boys ... well then this mix is for you .......
It starts off with a slow one ... and probably one of my top albums of the year, Brad Barr's acoustic offering, The Fall Apartment ... highly recommended.

I posted this on Mog a while back... I figured I would try and start up my "Bestiary Series" here, however I don't think I will limit it strictly to musical interpretations.
The hydrus is an animal that lives in the Nile River. It is the enemy of the crocodile. When it sees a crocodile sleeping with its mouth open, the hydrus first rolls in mud to make itself slippery, then enters the crocodile's mouth and is swallowed. It then eats its way out of the crocodile's belly, killing it.
There are three parts to this beautiful song by David Daniell which you can find on The Great Koonaklaster Speaks: A John Fahey Celebration....
