Snobcast Recap: 2007.14

Written by  //  January 3, 2008  //  The Conservatory  //  1 Comment

Awww, the Best-Of list. Everybody longs to have the definitive outlook, but nobody ever gets it right. So here’s what we will be doing: We will be analyzing the year end lists of some other “reputable” music publications, I’ll sort of edit them accordingly to fit my preferences, and then play those songs on the Snobcast. Then you, the reader, can tell me what you think should stay; what should go; and what should be added or subtracted from the list/playlist. In the end we will have compiled the definitive Best of 2007 list.

This is who has been dismissed from and who has been added to the list:

Additions: Subtractions:
Chromeo Britney Spears
Kanye West M.I.A.
Daft Punk Panda Bear
Menomena Of Montreal
Kevin Drew Dinosaur Jr.
Band of Horses Iron & Wine  
Blonde Redhead Aesop Rock
Modest Mouse Gang of Four
Amy Winehouse The White Stripes
Dr. Dog Jay-Z
Justice Architecture In Helsinki
The Shins Deerhoof
Ariel Pink Madlib
No Age Vampire Weekend
UNKLE Robert Wyatt
Laura Viers Dizzee Rascal
  The Pipettes
  Sunset Rubdown
  The Black Lips

Best-Of revealed after the jump.
