I asked the lead singer from my favorite band of 2008, Nick Krgovich of No Kids, to send me over a list of his top 10 albums for 2008.
And he did. He did even better. He sent over his top 12.
This cat is fa real. I think this is why "Come Into My House" is my favorite album of the year. His top 12 includes the obscure, the indie famous, legendary funk expirmentalists, and a funky R&B chartreuse. Also a bunch of people I never heard of.
Thanks Nick for sending this over. If you haven't bought it yet, go get No Kids "Come Into My House" now.
