  1. Menomena with Guards:

    Dan Boeckner’s side project from Wold Parade, Handsome Furs, has to be my favorite. Alongside his wife, they put out 3 amazing albums. It was tragic when they called it quits last year.

  2. Favorite musical side project – Gayngs

  3. MENOMENA with GUARDS – Favorite side project of all time is a tough one. There are so many great ones to choose from, Tom Tom Club, Postal Service, Junip, Billy Bragg & Wilco, Raconteurs, Maximum Balloon, Monsters of Folk, etc. but I think I have to go with Sunset Rubdown. Krug’s narrative lyrics and the out pouring of emotions during their live sets are incredible.

  4. Favorite side project is definitely Billy Bragg & Wilco. Mermaid Avenue is one of my all-time favorites!

  5. Traveling Wilburys!

  6. Menomena with Guards:

    Billy Bragg with Wilco ~ Mermaid Avenue volumes 1 & 2

  7. Those Canadian band family trees can look rather incestuous so it can be hard to tell what is a side project and what is a primary project, but I’ll vote for Sunset Rubdown as Spencer Krug’s Wolf Parade side project.

  8. Menomena –

    A few of my favorite albums are the products of side projects, from Panda Bear’s “Person Pitch” to Ramona Falls’ “Intuit”. I’ve got to be real, though – The Postal Service’s recent reunion has me incredibly excited for the opportunity to see one of my favorite bands of all time perform live!

    Golden Smog for the win !

  10. Winners have been notified. Thanks everybody!
