Filter gets ‘best of’ lists from artists including M83, Ladytron, Mountain Goats

    Filter Magazine collected "Best of 2008" lists from a whole slew of artists and is releasing them throughout the month of December. Santogold’s eponymous debut so far has the most nods, landing on six lists including Ladytron’s, Kaiser Chiefs’, and Earlimart’s. Runners-up Fleet Foxes, Vampire Weekend and MGMT have all showed up five times thus far. Chromeo can’t decide if The-Dream or Santogold is the best new artist of 2008. Ryan Adams, ever the eccentric, has compiled a somewhat unconventional list, with a Testament release, a Smiths compilation, and Mariah Carey’s E=MC2 making his favorite albums of 2008. Read the lists already written and the ones upcoming at Filter.
