So turnout for these was pretty solid this year. We had about 31 posters vote, so we've got some interesting results. Sorry for the late start today. That is something we hopefully won't have to worry about for singles/albums polls later this week simply because the tabbing for those lists are done already. The categories we have for today are: -Best Album Tracks -Best Album Openers -Best Album Closers -Artists of the Year -Best Video -Best Live Acts -Biggest Letdowns -Best Album Cover -Best New Artist -Worst Single -Best Music Related Movies -Biggest WTF Songs -Best Label -Best Music-Related Pop Culture Moments -Best Cover Song -Best Music Related Books -Best Music-Related TV Perforamce -Best SOMB Mixes For most of these, we'll give the top 5-10 finishers (with a few exceptions). The first category should be up in a few minutes after some Google image searching.

SOMB Sounds Vol. 2


1. Montana - Winds of the Tooths
Inspired by an extraordinary clear night sky in the Absaroka-Beartooth Wilderness amongst granite cliffs, old pines, and all that is still wild in the universe.

2. st. park - Sea

3. Twilight Revival/Tweed - Killers
Tweed plays guitar and sings in Chicago's Twilight Revival. The song "Killers" is taken from their 2007 self-titled debut.

4. Low Point Alumni/Triple Lindys - The Thick of It
I got tired of writing slow, introspective songs, went ahead and wrote a rocker. Was gunning for Son Volt, didn't quite end up that way.

5. Fox Paws/elastico - Book of All

6. Kinetic Android - Heart Attack

7. theremin - Doom & Gloom

8. Parka Bruthuz UK/Sid Hartha - Cauterize The Cure
Who says that the romance of bloodletting is dead?

9. Pauline York Band/Jimmy TKB - Foolish
"Foolish" was written and performed by Jimmy TKB and the Pauline York Band, and was issued as the second single on their 2007 LP, Get Down and Ride!

10. Creepy D/Seamus, Mr. Inches, Ashy Larry, Wolfden Robes and LA Mat - China High

11. Flexible Products/lazarus - Funky Clavi

"Sylvia II is one of the co-title tracks from the upcoming full-length debut by the Butterfly Assassins (due out in January 2008)."

13. Agrimorfee - Right!(?) or Wrong?(!)
This is an epic. Sit tight for about 6 1/2 minutes or so.

14. simakos - The Woods

15. Ghosts of Television/nic - Explosions

16. gleaman - We Almost Survived

17. Undercooked Sausage & Pavement Ist Rad - Judy & The Dream of Horses
"Judy And The Dream Of Horses" is an obscure B-side by talented members of The Mars Volta, Undercooked Sausage recorded the vocals sometime in summer of 2006 and Pavement Ist Rad ended up finishing the song over a year later. A noise masterpeice that reportedly could even made Pre-crisis Superman go deaf.

Roc-A-Fella got my #1 vote. Quantity + quality.

Oh the suffering, I feel the weight of the world and all it's pain" FUCK YOU......Be the grizzly, tear some shit up, rather than tearing yourself up." -- Montana, 12/21/08
