Best Albums of 2008: #10: M83: Saturdays=Youth

10. M83: Saturdays = Youth

This list, you may have noticed, has surprisingly fewer post-rock albums than last year. Not really sure why this is the case, except that I went in a bunch of different directions with the genres I was exploring. One thing that clearly would have made the list had it been a full-length is Paego Paego’s A Bird for Every Country, which you can get free on their Myspace. As it was, Saturdays=Youth was, for me, functionally this year’s And Their Refinement of Their Decline, with a lot more Brian Eno. It wasn’t a great work rotation album, but the kind of thing that I returned to again and again when I just wanted time to freeze so that I could disappear into oblivion.
