“14 Tracks : The Best Of 2008 Part 2”

The second instalment in our year-end highlights selection features another batch of incredible music that's hovered somewhere below the radar in 2008. From the masterful post-classical opulence of Jacaszek to the squashed party styles of Geeneus and the demented 2-step variations of Millie and Andrea, it's a selection that should leave you in no doubt that it's been an absolute vintage year for bold, inventive and beautiful music from the margins. Stay tuned for next week's third and final part.

Take part! Leave a comment!

What do you think of this selection?
Any suggestions?
All comments are warmly welcomed.

Part 2 is just superb...... bonus that there'll be a part 3! Really love the Geeneus, Jacaszek and Gas, but they're all amazing...

“So far so good”

I may not share some of the "best of"s with you but I say yes, no doubt, to GAS and PAAVOHARJU. So much beauty in there...
And congratulations to Scuba, not only on his last album but on the work he's done with Hotflush. A must.

“Bundled selections”

<p>
Zipped selection bundles have arrived, which should make the download process for full selections a little (a lot?) easier.
</p>
<p>
In case anyone’s wondering, this applies to all the existing selections too. Time to get Wonky?
</p>
<p>
Thanks for all your suggestions and your patience. x

“Please please please...”

I love 14 tracks - the selection of tunes is just inspiring. Here's the but...

Please please please distribute tracks with well formed ID3 tags (with the original album name), art work and an in-order playlist. We're nearly in 2009 now and this stuff often looks like it came from a bittorrent site. It's just not good enough!!!

“to robin”

Please see the above comment.
As of today all the selections are bundled in the correct order, with the correct tags, images and so on.

cheers!

“Apologies!”

That'll teach not to read before I type. Great improvement! It'd be great if you could keep the original album names too for us anally-retentive audiophiles.

“Merry Chrismas 14 Tracks/ Boomkat”

Another amazing selection,so inspiring just brilliant!One thing i would say is when you play the tracks,they play from start to finish,without you being able to jump to wherever you want in the track,like you can with the player on the main Boomkat site.Not that i want to continually skip bits as every track is stunning from start to finish,just an observation really.Happy Xmas 14 Tracks!Right i am going to get into part 3..
