Paul Scheer1.) National, "Boxer"
This album really snuck up on me. At first I was like, "Ah..whatever", then I was like, "Holy Shit, these guys are geniuses!"

Kanye West2.) Kanye West "Graduation"
I probably listened to Kanye more thn the National but I just wanted to put him as my number 2 to piss him off, he's funny when he's angry.

3.) Radiohead, "In Rainbows"
Undisputed Awesomness!

4.) The Arcade Fire, "Neon Bible"
It's downright unamerican not to mention this Canadian band as one of your favorite albums of the year. I love their beards.

5.) Black Lips, "Good Bad Not Evil"
Great album. I saw them live this year, I was disappointed when they didn't literally burn Bowery Ballroom to the ground. I thought they were showmen.

Friday Night Lights

6.) LCD Soundsystem, "Sound of Silver"
Aziz and Rob got me into this album. I'm hooked.

7.) The White Stripes, "Icky Thump"
People were mixed but this is the type of White Stripes album I like, it's really rough around the edges and I can listen to it anytime.

8.) Spoon, "Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga"
After seeing them live, I was like I should check these guys. I did and now I'm a fan.

9.) Various Artists, "Friday Night Lights: TV Soundtrack"
I'm obsessed with this show and this album is actually really good. They have a ton of local Austin bands on it and now I'm a big fan of "Explosions in the Sky" and "Jose Gonzales."

10.) The Pipettes, "We are the Pipettes"
It's like the real life version of Josie and the Pussycats but British!


Season 2 of Human Giant premieres March 4th on MTV. Season one comes out on DVD the same day.
