it's the good ones that will last

It was not easy for me and my wife to pick or favorite tracks from all of the monthly mixes made in 2008, but we eventually settled on this list. And I would be lying to you if I told you we didn't have new contenders occasionally popping up in conversation when we listen to some of the mixes over again. Take it for leave it, here are the top 20.

1. Inní Mér Syngur Vitleysingur ~ Sigur Rós

6. The Girl ~ City And Colour
7. Radio Song ~ The Felice Brothers
8. Flume ~ Bon Iver
9. Rocky Took A Lover ~ BellX1
10. Latitudes ~ Pela
11. Apartment Story ~ The National
12. Walcott ~ Vampire Weekend
13. Anytown Graffiti ~ Pela

Hope I'm on the list for this! The two you sent me last month were VERY much appreciated -- getting constant play-time on the laptop - You are solely responsible for making me an Avett Brothers and Lucero fan. Thanks for the tunes.
