L Mags bands you should hear

The did it in 2007, and again in 2008, and this year L Magazine is back with their list of "8 NYC Bands You Need to Hear" (plus some runner-ups). Check out the 2009 list, and discuss, below...

2009's picks include:

pow wow!
Savoir Adore
The Albertans
Amanaguchi
Darlings
Emanuel & The Fear
The Beets
Xylos

They also gave honorable mentions to Sisters, Dinosaur Feathers, Neighbors, Browns, Hospitality, and Knight School. Shout outs were also given to Woods, Creaky Boards (think Coldplay), and Real Estate, who they "left out of our top eight, based on the notion that they are already well on their way to success, fame and world domination".
