Liner recommendations of 2008

There’s a number of reasons why I’m a Tearliner fan. It’s not just because he makes really good music, but also because Liner is the kindest guy. And he’s got a great taste in music. In fact he’s so nice that he agreed to list his favorite albums of the year for Indieful ROK – and as a bonus he included separate lists with a bunch of all time favorites. Even if you’re not the list type, a recommendation or two is never wrong, right?

There’s now a liner recommends tag radio at last.fm including most of the above, though if it will play or not for you I don’t know… It works fine for me at work, but not so much from home: helikoppter’s liner recommends radio (for last.fm subscribers) or global liner recommends radio (for everybody else).

And don’t forget the upcoming release of the Romantic Island soundtrack! Only three more days now…
