Support the independent voice of Dallas and help keep the future of Dallas Observer free.

The past twelve months have been unusually good ones for North Texas music. Major-label bands like Midlake, The Polyphonic Spree and The Baptist Generals produced new records. Debut efforts put the likes of Lord Byron and Sam Lao squarely on the radar, and plenty of bands somewhere in between made noise.

Over the next few weeks, we'll tell you what our favorite DFW albums, EPs and mixtapes were this year. But before we do, we want to hear from you.

For now, we're accepting nominations. Submit yours in the comments below or using this poll:

We'll tally the responses and determine ten finalists, and from there you can determine the people's champion.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
