Stinkweeds put a up on their website to their Best of 2008 booklet. As I mentioned before I was lucky enough to be one of the contributors. Go check out the booklet if you haven't already picked it up down at Stinkweeds.
There is some great recommendations that you wont find at places like Pitchfork, Stereogum or MOK. Particularly check out, Jesse Srogoncik, Damon Brasch, Mike Genz... and ofcourse, Kimber Lanning and Lindsay Cates.
