The Format put out one of the best records of the year. They also gave one of the best shows in Hollywood this summer. For some reason though we haven't seen them on very many Best Of 2006 lists which makes us a little sad inside.

Dog Problems was funny, uplifting, dance alongy, and sometimes deep. Bro can sing, and the songs are multilayered and unique. Maybe it's not cool to like the Format just yet? Must have been another email that we lost to the spam filter.

Hailing from Arizona and singing happy songs about sad things, the shaggy haired singer Nate Reuss joined in on the fun and gave us his Top 10 favorite cds of 2006:
