Happy Friday! Come on down to the Panda Party and help us get through another Friday during this holiday season with some tunes. 'tis the season for coworkers to show up hungover more regularly and end of the year best-of lists. I'm always tempted to make my own, but the guys at Sound Opinions had a pretty damn solid one, so I'm linking theirs instead. Both had #1 bands that I saw at SXSW and was duly impressed by and do, in fact, think had records that qualify as #1. So here's a sample, but come in to Panda Party, and share your own

What's your best record of the year?
