i want to preface this by saying that mild winter has ¡two! 2008 releases, feb’s a wanderer’s home and nov’s postcards & letters,

both of which should be on anyone’s short list, local or no, for 2008.

i asked ben schlabach about his and mild winter bandmates’ (melanie and nik) favorite records of the year.  & this is what they said:

we each did our top three things to listen to in 2008, and a sub category for some awesome local releases that came out this year. I was pretty excited about music in harrisonburg this year, not an over abundance of local bands, but a lot of solid local shows at different places around town, and alot of the local bands put something new out, or are working on getting something together for early 2009.

Melanie
-Magnetic Fields – Holiday
-Birdlips – Cardboard Wings
-Girl Talk – Feed the Animals

Ben
-Austin Lucas – Common Cold
-the Everybodyfields – Nothing is Okay
-Chuck Ragan and Austin Lucas – Bristle Ridge

Nik
-coming soon

Some of the wonderful local releases of 2008
-The Brooms – Pull Out His Eyes
-Valkyrie – Man of Two Visions
-Savage Land – Honor Among Thieves
