January's CD seemed to come up pretty fast after the release of the Best of the Rest 2007 but it doesn't suffer from neglect by any means.
1. Time to Pretend - MGMT
The best beat on the compilation.
2. Go Go Gadget Heart - Birdie Busch
Track title says it all.
3. Heavy - The Blacks
They just got that sound that is good.
4. Fluorescent Adolescent (Arctic Monkeys cover) - Kate Nash
Kate Nash has been doing a lot of covers lately but this is the best one as of it.
5. Jimmy (M.I.A. cover) - Of Montreal
Of Montreal schools M.I.A. in this cover. It's just an awesome song.
6. Tonight - Lykke Li
For some reason it just resonates.
7. Hide and Seek - Imogen Heap
Possibly one of the most poetic intro lyrics: "Where were we? What the hell is going on? The dust has only just begun to form crop circles in the carpet."
8. Go to Hell - Scary Mansion
Seriously, go to Hell. This song has an eerie awesomeness to it.
9. Normal Guy - Jon Lajoie
Not a very serious rap song but it's just funny to listen to.
10. Elegant Walk - The Blacks
Best song of The Blacks featured on this compilation.
11. Down to Rest - O' Death
12. Wraith Pinned to the Mist & Other Games - Of Montreal
13. Rumors - Josh Ritter
Josh Ritter is good and this song proves it.
14. Wasted - Angus and Julia Stone
This song may appear on the soundtrack to Closer... maybe. It's included on the compilation just to test out this theory.
15. Party Down the Hall - Stone Coyotes
Sheryl Crow has a new band?
16. Despite What You've Been Told - Two Gallants
17. Waiting On Her - The Blacks
They just have that sound.
Normal Guy 2 - Jon Lajoie
