Flashlite #35. The Best of 2008.

Cobra VerdeSo here we are. 2009 has started and we’re back on line every Thursday. The first show this year is dedicated to the greatest music in 2008. This is an entirely personal list and it’s most likely totally different than yours. But I still hope that you might find it interesting. My personal favorite in 2008 is Cobra Verde’s album Haven’t Slept All Year. It’s been in making since 2006 really and the band put a lot of effort into it. It’s their most diverse album yet, as good as legendary Nightlife. But because of my strong emotional attachment to this record, I’m leaving it out of competition. This makes Paul Westerberg’s experiment in novel forms 49:00 the greatest record in 2008 at the Little Lighthouse. Look below for the full list. My favorite unreleased album in 2008 is another one of my personal favorites. It’s Kamo Sutra’s new record, expertly recorded and exciting, one hundred percent fun.

Flashlite #30

Quintron The new name in today’s show is Peter and The Pets, a band from Antwerp in Belgium, a band clearly influenced by all the coolest 80s underground, which us at the Lighthouse hold so dearly to our hearts. Another name is The War on Drugs from Philadelphia. They are an interesting version of post modernist approach to rock, but with heavy influences in 60s rock. So, creativity and modernity with a careful eye on the past. We appreciate that rare approach here at the Little Lighthouse. Nils, the KLSU Funkpreacher is back with his band of ten years, Funkdienst. New Orleans keyboardist Quintron is also back with a new album called Too Thirsty For Love. From my brief visit to Zagreb, I bring you the newly mastered recordings by Kamo Sutra, who are about to package them up into a brand new CD. Elvis Costello also had a very good album earlier this week, which took us some time to present. But it’s a really good one. It’s entitled Momofuku, after the Japanese inventor of instant soups! And that’s all for today, folks!

Georgie Fame And The Blue Flames – Last Night;
Elvis Costello – American Gangster Time;
Quintron – Waterfall;
The Heretics – Soul Rebel Party;
Diplomats of Solid Sound – Plenty Nasty;
Funkdienst – Tough Talk;
