TILT Music Blog – My Favorite Albums in 2008

October 27, 2010 Leave a comment

Over the past few years I’ve been part of a music message board (Pulso Rock) where at the end of every year we post our individual favorite albums that we’ve listened to that particular year but released that same year.  It has slowly become a nice little tradition that we still continue.  So I decided to start documenting on my own blog my choices and perhaps give a little bit more information on my choices.   I will start with previous years and later on I’ll include my 2010 picks (considering I’m still adding to the list).  There will be albums in English and in Spanish and sometimes maybe even on another language.So I hope you enjoy my lists and share with me on the comments what have been your favorite albums of such years.  If you click on the artwork of each album you’ll be taken to the group’s MySpace page so you can listen to some of their music, if my two liners and the art entice you.  If you click on the artist’s name, for the ones that have a hyperlink, you can go to a previous review I’ve done about that particular group in my blog.

TILT Music Blog – Rilo Kiley

Rilo Kiley.  This is one of those bands for which I would take a trip overnight to NYC (like three hours drive), and go to work the next day happy.  It’s one of those little secrets of indie you don’t mind sharing with other people and would love to see everywhere.  The sweet sweet voice of Jenny Lewis, the great compositions of Blake and Pierre and Jason giving the rhythm section something to look forward to.  Don’t get me wrong, Rilo Kiley is not going to save rock (that task is impossible, and plus ain’t rock dead? anyway…) but for those of us who are tired of the same neo alternative crap or the grunge-core adaptation or the hip-core-metal extravaganza that  was just as bad as the boyband era, this group brings some fresh air.  Read more…

Reseñas De Discos: Death Cab For Cutie – Plans (2005)

Banda: Death Cab For Cutie

A diferencia de los cristianos, yo descubrí este grupo luego de conocer el side project del vocalista del grupo (Ben Gibbard ) llamado The Postal Service.  Una vez me enamoré de la propuesta traté de descubrir otra música que tuvieran y entonces descubrí al grupo Death Cab.  Read more…
