Top Records of 2008 (so far)

I generally post my top 10 records at the end of the year and I certainly plan on doing that again this year. But I couldn’t help but get into this NPR poll to determine the top records so far this year.

My votes were for Bon Iver, Dengue Fever, MGMT, My Morning Jacket, and Vampire Weekend. I might have voted for Mike Doughty’s Golden Delicious or Kooks’ Konk, but neither were on the list.

But the best part of this poll is the comment thread. I bought three records just reading through it; Jason Collett, The Dodos, and Momofuku – Elvis Costello’s new record.
