With End of Year listmaking being the favorite holiday pasttime for a lot of us around here, we asked some of our local music friends to submit their own top 10 lists this year. The first to return theirs was Scott Giampino, the talent buyer at the Triple Door. His list (in no particular order, he says) is:

1. Neko Case, Middle Cyclone

2. Eleni Mandell, Artificial Fire

3. Lee Fields and the Expressions, My World

4. Death, For the Whole World to See

5. Visqueen, Message to Garcia

6. Alela Diane, To Be Still

7. Dan Auerbach, Keep it Hid

8. Black Joe Lewis, Tell Em What Your Name Is

9. Cave Singers, Welcome Joy

10. M Ward, Hold Time

Also close: Mayer Hawthorne, Portugal the Man and Bonnie “Prince” Billy.
