Music of the Sphere: Shins, Fannies, Lush, T. Sprout, Who, Hollies, I Love Math, Sherwood, Explorers', Grapefruit, Pains, Vetiver, Vile, Misophone, YJ

A tempting table of tuneage is here spread before you, thanks to the generosity of our gracious hosts and hostess. It was excruciating trying to decide which order to put these in, so please pretend they're all first.

Lush - Ladykillers & Ciao! & 500 (Shake Baby Shake) & The Childcatcher & Light From a Dead Star - a PLAGUE of ANGELS

The Who - I'm a Boy - Pretty Goes With Pretty
The Hollies - Carrie Anne - Milk Milk Lemonade - an outtake or something but still neato
Tobin Sprout - The Last Man Well Known To Kingpin - Art Decade - former Guided by Voices, but then, you knew that

I Love Math - Too Many Demons & Only Clowns Are Scary - a PLAGUE of ANGELS
The Explorers Club - Last Kiss - Pretty Goes With Pretty - Beach Boysesque, as previously noted

Dissensous has posted his faves of 2008 over at Raven Sings the Blues, and as you would expect, the board groans with goodness. Here are some of ours of some of his, plus a few others.

Grapefruit - Ain't It Good & Elevator - Raven Sings the Blues - under the influence of Beatles
Vetiver - See You Tonight - Raven Sings the Blues

Kurt Vile - Freeway - Raven Sings the Blues - Vile but in no way vile. Or Weill. - #8
Yussuf Jerusalem - We Ain't Coming Back - Raven Sings the Blues - The production is maybe too fuzzy for some pure poppers, but there's pure pop in there nevertheless.
Misophone - Grey Clouds - Raven Sings the Blues
