Obscure Sound: Best of January 2008



After a rewarding 2007, the new year has already embraced us with several artists who demonstrated great potential and ability on their recent releases. As for this past month, whether it has been through reputably innovative artists (Xiu, Destroyer) or brand new acts who have yet to even be signed (The Delfields, Run Dan Run), the optimism surrounding music in 2008 has been enjoyably exposed thus far.
