We love lists, making them and reading other bloggers’ numeric lineups; we had previously posted a list from Jose Luis from Rock en las Americas, and he went ahead and listed the 10 songs of 2008 already. We still got a month to go, but December is usually a slow month for releases. Club Fonograma is already working on a huge list for the best of the year, wait for it. Note that Jose Luis notes that these aren’t necessarily the best songs of the year, but Los Temas del 2008. Pay close attention to “Terroristas Tercermundistas” from Cienfue, a song I had not heard before and I’m already loving. Also another awesome single from Turbopotamos (the rockabilly answer to the Artic Monkeys), the most underrated new rock band in Latin America, as I mentioned in my review of their wonderful No Love, they should run to Mexico or Argentina ASAP.
