This week marks the end of 2008 and the beginning of another new year. As we look ahead to another promising year for new music, we look back at another catalog of releases. Incidentally, JFH staff picked House Of Heroes‘ The End Is Not The End as their favorite album of 2008, which should finally hit stores nationwide early ’09 (possibly February 24th). The End Is Not The End is a solid collection of indie rock songs that are as accessible and catchy as they are fresh and deep. From lighter subject matter (“If,” “Leave You Now,”) to much deeper fare (“Voices,” “Field Of Daggers,” “In The Valley Of The Dying Sun”), The End Is Not The End has a little for everyone as well as plenty of food for thought. If you haven’t picked it up because you’re waiting for a physical copy (and haven’t seen them live to get one or been able to find a copy online), this will certainly be worth the wait to pick it up in a couple months when it finally hits streets!

Our synopsis: “The fusion of music and written word of this caliber is so rare these days, but House of Heroes has succeeded where most have tried and failed. Easily the best record of 2008.” (Recommended by JFH’s Josh Taylor)
