Clint’s Three-Quarter Time Awards Ceremony

I’ve heard a LOT of great music this year, and seen a LOT of really good bands.  After seeing Swervedriver play Raise this week at the Zoo, I started thinking about all of the great music I’ve been lucky enough to witness over the last 9 months and decided to write a list (because everybody loves lists, right?) of the best music I’ve heard so far.  Here are my picks:

Best New Record: Adalita – All Day Venus
