before it's too late: best of 2007 vol III.


When it comes to year-end, it seems like everyone has to weigh in on what their favourite music of the past twelve months. In bloggerland, this is especially true. At BTA, we're no different except that there are multiple opinions that get expressed.

This is the third full mix posted by us, both MFBlaz and a.m.p.m. have beaten me to the punch (which isnt hard to do considering we're nearly a full week into 2008). But not to be outdone, here is a mix of what I consider to be the finest music of this past year.

Since I'm notoriously poor in the technical department, the mix isn't mixed per say, but that doesn't mean that thought wasn't put into the order of the songs.

Download the entire mix right here, or click below for individual tracks.

Gruff Rhys - This is Just the Beginning
Yeah Yeah Yeahs - Rockers to Swallow
Les Savy Fav - The Year Before the Year 2000
LCD Soundsystem - Watch the Tapes
Bombay Bicycle Club - How are You
M.I.A. - Paper Planes
Kanye West - Barry Bonds (ft. Lil Wayne)
Arcade Fire - Neon Bible
Cloud Cult - Chemicals Collide
Broken Social Scene ft Kevin Drew - TBTF
Tegan & Sara - Like Oh, Like H
The Wooden Sky - When Lost at Sea
Of Montreal - The Past is a Grotesque Animal
Clap Your Hands Say Yeah! - Satan Said Dance
Vampire Weekend - Bryn
Spoon - You Got Yr Cherrybomb
Kings of Leon - Camaro
Black Lips - Veni Vidi Vici
The National - Fake Empire
Bright Eyes - Clairaudients (Kill or Be Killed)

A lot of the above have wound up on many people's best of's (at least the artist/album, if not the song). But if i could personally recommend one of the lesser-knowns, I'd like to point you, the BTA faithful, toward Toronto indie folk/country wonders the Wooden Sky. Their 07 release When Lost at Sea is definitely a contender for my favourite Canadian album of the year. I've been meaning to post fully on these guys, which I still intend to do - so keep your eyes (and ears) out.

For nostalgia purposes, my 2003 mix is available here.
