Jandek - The Myth Of Blue Icicles

Beyond these albums, I've also thoroughly enjoyed (or re-enjoyed you could say) albums that were not released in 2008. Since I got a lot of listening out of these, I think they too belong here:

Komeda - Kokomemedada
Squarepusher - Go Plastic / Feed Me Weird Things
Pub - Summer
Bitstream - Crab Nebula/Stream One 7"
Stars of the Lid - The Ballasted Orchestra
Dion McGregor - Dreams Again
The Orb - Orbus Terrarum
The entire Basic Channel / Chain Reaction / Maurizio catalogs
Everything Rod Modell / Deepchord / Echospace
Most all of the Ampoule / Talent Hoover catalogs
Lots of things on DIN / Imbalance Computer Music / Vibrant Music
All those early Omit tapes and lathes
A healthy dose of EOD's 002q imprint

    Pretty similar to my own list Brian. The Beck and Mrs Jynx albums are two tops for me, along with School of Seven Bells' 'Alpinisms' (check it out if you haven't already!)

    Anyone who so much knows what Confluence is gets 100 or so points from me.
