The Best North Texas Albums of 2013: Now Accepting Nominations

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.
