  1. Atlas Sound is a favorite of mine, the one man show of Deerhunter lead singer Bradford Cox.

  2. This should be a great show!

  3. I hope we can hear a monsters of folk song when conor oberst comes to town next month!

  4. I would have to say Panda Bear (Animal Collective). Very much an experimental, yet throwback sound. Love it.

  5. I’d have to say the Traveling Wilbury’s were one of the best super groups ever… and Bob Dylan will be in town soon!

  6. So many to choose from Wilburys to the Highwaymen, but I’ll go with Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young.

  7. Monsters of Folk is an amazing supergroup… but my favorite would have to be The Postal Service.

  8. It’s a solo project more than a side project, but lately I’d have to say Colin Hay.

  9. Although it was only a one time thing I would have to say Questlove’s supergroup he put together at Bonnaroo this year.
    Containing D’Angelo, members from the Soulquarians, P-Funk, The Time, and of course The Roots.

    Didn’t make it but there is quality legal recording of the whole set floating around the web.

  10. Atlas Sound.

  11. Hard to chose here, Monsters of Folk is close, so is Josh Ritter;s side career as a novelist, but in the end I’ve got to go with Mike Ness and his dual albums honoring the music here grew up with…

  12. Atlas Sound is by far my fave solo artist with a supergroup side project now, he’s amazing no doubt. But I must say looking back, I was insanely impressed by Sunset Rubdown(Wolf Parade).

    And seeing Spencer perform with a different crew at the Annex in ’08, then High Noon in ’09 was a true treat that really sealed the deal on my love for them.

    It’s a little creative/chaotic for me now, but you know I’ll never shake this thing I’ve got for Canadian musicians! … (however, a little Americana’d really rock my world Wednesday)

  13. Probably has to be Ramona Falls….although it is now the main focus of Brent Knopf (formerly of Menomena).

  14. A new one is Divine Fits.

  15. she and him.

  16. Silver Jews! Yeah, you know it..

  17. Ugly Casanova. Too big to fail.

  18. Damn! So many good responses to choose from! The winner for this one will be Nikita. Congratulations!
