Best Albums/Songs of 2008, Halfway: What’re Your Picks?

I can hardly restrain myself. It’s almost time for my mid-year best of picks, and I want to make sure I haven’t missed anything. If there are any sweet jams or monolithic albums you think are a lock for your year-end lists, drop ’em in the comments.

(Well-reviewed albums that won’t be on my halftime list: Dodos, Portishead, No Age, Hercules and Love Affair; well-reviewed albums that will definitely be on it: Cut Copy, Cut Copy, Cut Copy)
