Well as 2008 comes to a close, I just wanted to take a moment to thank everyone for making it such a great year. We couldn't stay open without the support from all of you - thanks so much for that.
To wrap things up I thought I'd post my favorite albums of 2008 (hopefully everyone else at Slowtrain will get the hint and post their own for you up here too!). For full descriptions on each record you'll need to pick it up at Slowtrain in our great little zine format. They are limited and we've gone through most of them already, so if you don't have yours - hurry up!
My Top 10:
10. Throw Me The Statue - Moonbeams (Secretly Canadian)
9. Wye Oak - If Children (Merge)
8. Okkervil River - The Stand Ins (Jagjaguwar)
7. White Hinterland - Luniculaire (Dead Oceans)
6. Evangelicals - The Evening Descends (Dead Oceans)
