My Top 8: Annuals

Annuals2 We here at Billboard understand as well as anyone what astronomical importance of one's MySpace Top 8. Or top 12, 24, 128...

Every now and again, we'd like to present artist's perspectives on their Top 8 friends on MySpace. This week, we'll kick off with Raleigh, N.C.'s Annuals, who are preparing to release their "Wet Zoo" EP next week on April 1 via Columbia. We initially fell in love with the band listening to their "Be He Me" full-length and seeing them play a packed and happy show at Pianos in New York.

From the band, on My Top 8:

  • WKNC 88.1

We picked these guys because they were the first radio station to play our music which, in return, got us some of our first fans. We get the opportunity to pay them back each year by playing their annual double barrel benefit.

  • Schoolkids Records

Local record store where we buy all the newest jams.

  • Zach Galifianakis

This is probably the funniest guy we know. He lets us sleep over in his cabin in the mountains and open comedy shows for him.

  • Terpsikhore Collective

Our very own record label that we use to put out our favorite bands.

  • JK

Our very good friend and life partner. He is also the owner and genius behind Terpsikhore.

  • Sunfold

Formerly known as Sedona, this is one of our many side projects that include the same members of Annuals.

  • The Flaming Lips

We’ve been fortunate enough to open for these guys on more than one occasion and it is always a psychedelic experience.

  • Lonnie Walker

Look for their debut full length coming out on Terpsikhore this year.Our good good friends and pretty much the best band to ever come out of Greenville, N.C.

A nice selection, and bravo for the time taken to actually select top friends on MySpace (when there is a lot, its amazingly time consuming to find them on that thing) :o)
